window embedded standard 7e (wes7e) and QT5 applications



  • Hi we have a QT applications Based on(Qt Creator 3.5.1 (opensource) & Qt 5.5.1 (MSVC 2013, 32 bit) , which is running on windows 10.

    Now we planning to migrate the applications to run on windows embedded standard 7e. The question is can the QT applications run smoothly on windows embedded standard 7e, as i go through QT supported platforms & configurations i can find that the info as below :-

    for Qt 5.5 can support Windows Embedded 7 (armv4i)
    compiler MSVC 2008
    Windows 7 host

    anyway as it said here :-

    " Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) is built on the same framework as Windows 7 Ultimate, which means that any software that’s compatible with a standard Windows 7 distribution will also run properly on WES7"

    can we safely assume that QT5 32bit app can be supported on wes7e although the supported platform is wes7, and the CPU on the hardware running wes7e is not armv4i but a Intel® Celeron® processor N3060.

    As it stated windows 7 as host, does this mean we need window 7 as host to compile the executable for the windows embedded 7 or any host can be used such as window 10 and then cross compile it for wes7e

    @VikramSamy Maybe somebody here can answer your question.
    But it would be better to ask it on Qt developers mailing list as Qt developers should know it better.
    This is user forum.
