Qt 5.10.1 Install fails with "License check failed! Giving up ..."



  • I just installed QT 5.10.1 Open Source option. When I try to build a project, I see "License check failed. Giving up...". I never had a problem with other versions I had installed previously (highest I used was 5.5.1).

    Appreciate any guidance,

    Thanks

    Sean



  • I installed the Open source option. This is what shows on Compile Output Section:

    NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE NOTICE

    Hi,

    Then don't login and just continue the installation of the OpenSource Edition.



  • @SGaist That's what I did. I did not sign in with any username and it went to Open source installation. I also removed the .qt_license from my default login directory. However, the problem still occurs

    Then are you sure you are using that version you installed and not the old one ?



  • @SGaist

    yes. Here is snapshot
    0_1526773403680_snapshot.png

    Here is the config in 5.10.1/mingw53_32/mkspec/qconfig.pri

    QT_ARCH = i386
    QT_BUILDABI = i386-little_endian-ilp32
    QT.global.enabled_features = shared debug_and_release build_all c++11 c++14 c++1z concurrent
    QT.global.disabled_features = cross_compile framework rpath appstore-compliant pkg-config force_asserts separate_debug_info simulator_and_device static
    QT_CONFIG += shared debug_and_release debug release build_all c++11 c++14 c++1z concurrent dbus no-pkg-config stl
    CONFIG += shared release no_plugin_manifest
    QT_VERSION = 5.10.1
    QT_MAJOR_VERSION = 5
    QT_MINOR_VERSION = 10
    QT_PATCH_VERSION = 1
    QT_GCC_MAJOR_VERSION = 5
    QT_GCC_MINOR_VERSION = 3
    QT_GCC_PATCH_VERSION = 0
    QT_EDITION = OpenSource
    QT_LICHECK = licheck.exe
    QT_RELEASE_DATE = 2018-02-09

    Note I had previously in earlier versions to 5.5.1 with Open Source with no problems. I do remember I had accidentally used a evaluation version quite early on which had expired. That did not affect my subsequent Open Source versions to 5.5.1. What happened here is that I upgraded Open source 5.5.1 to 5.10.1 and now nothing is working anymore.



  • @SGaist I fixed it by deleting all the QT folders (old ones included), desinstalled QT and started again.
