How to choose compiler and kit



  • Hi all,

    I'm a beginner with qtcreator. I want to build an application that runs on windows 8 and 10 x64.
    I'm having difficulties on how to set up the kit. What compilers do I needs?

    I have the following kits:

    • Desktop QT 5.6.2 MinGW 32bit
    • Desktop QT 5.6.2 MSVC2013 32bit.
    • Desktop QT 5.6.2 MSVC2013 64bit
    • Desktop QT 5.6.2 MSVC2015 32bit
    • Desktop QT 5.6.2 MSVC2015 64bit
    • Desktop QT 5.6.2 for Universal Windows Patform 32bit
    • Desktop QT 5.6.2 for Universal Windows Patform 64bit

    I thought that I should use "Desktop QT 5.6.2 for Universal Windows Patform 64bit" . When I try to build the application with this kit I get following errors:

    Compile output: 14:51:17: The process "C:\Qt\Tools\mingw530_32\bin\mingw32-make.exe" exited with code 2.
    Error while building/deploying project test (kit: Qt 5.6.2 for Universal Windows Platform 64bit)
    The kit Qt 5.6.2 for Universal Windows Platform 64bit has configuration issues which might be the root cause for this problem.
    When executing step "Make"

    Issues :
    :-1: error: error: ucrt.lib: No such file or directory
    :-1: error: error: windowscodecs.lib: No such file or directory
    :-1: error: error: WindowsApp.lib: No such file or directory
    :-1: error: error: runtimeobject.lib: No such file or directory
    :-1: error: error: OneCore.lib: No such file or directory

    I can build the application with "Desktop QT 5.6.2 MinGW 32bit" but then I can not run the released application.

    I hope somebody is able to help me.
    Kind regards,
    TMJJ

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Why are you trying to use the MinGW compiler for the UWP versions of Qt ? You need to have the corresponding compiler installed.

    As for your MinGW release trouble, did you follow the deployment procedure ?

    Hi
    Do you really need that many kits installed ??

    Desktop QT 5.6.2 MinGW 32bit -> can make normal win32 apps in 32 bit. Run on win 10 64 bit too ( as 32 bit)
    Desktop QT 5.6.2 MSVC2013 32bit. -> 32 bit, you must install compiler yourself. VS 2013 ONLY ( runs on 64 bit too)
    Desktop QT 5.6.2 MSVC2013 64bit -> 64 bit, you must install compiler yourself. VS 2013 ONLY ( runs ONLY 64 bit )
    Desktop QT 5.6.2 MSVC2015 32bit -> 32 bit, you must install compiler yourself. VS 2015/17 ONLY ( runs on 64 bit too)
    Desktop QT 5.6.2 MSVC2015 64bit -> 64 bit, you must install compiler yourself. VS 2015/17 ONLY ( runs ONLY on 64 bit)
    Desktop QT 5.6.2 for Universal Windows Patform 32bit Not a Desktop app. WinRT only app
    Desktop QT 5.6.2 for Universal Windows Patform 64bit Not a Desktop app. WinRT only app

    Sounds to me you can just use mingw. for both 32/64 bit unless you want app to be 64 bit ?
