  • I fear it's just a version issue, can you try with Qt 5.11 or Qt 5.9. If either works, you should submit a bug report

  • i fear that i cant download qt 5.11 because of size (30G). is there alternative solution?

  • Moderators

    @coderboy99 don't just check the checkbox next to 5.11,

    expand the tree and select only the msvc version you need. however, in 5.11 the MSVC2013 support was removed from the code base -> you'll only get msvc2015 and 2017 precompiled files

    those are defenitly not compatible with msvc2012

  • Good spot @J-Hilk

    visual studio 2017

    Seems like you are mixing up versions of Visual Studio

    because of size (30G)

    1 version of Qt for 1 compiler is around 1.5GB depending on the addons you chose

  • @J.Hilk @VRonin Thank you for your help it worked !
