Qt Creator - unable to read/write its configuration files.
Windows 10 (64bit)
I've put just put in Qt 5.1.1, Creator 4.6.2 and MinGW 5.3.0.
I've used Qt a fair bit in the past, so I think its setup OK.
Most times when it tries to write its configuration files I get an error about read or write
access to various *.xml, *.qms files.
I'm using AVG anti-virus, do you think this is the problem?
I've put this "C:\Qt\Tools\QtCreator\bin\qtcreator.exe" in exceptions.
(Aappogies if I should go somewhere else, but maybe someone has had this problem)
Can you disable AVG for 5 minutes so you'll know for sure whether it's relevant?
I disabled AVG and its OK.
I now know where the problem is, AVG.
:) I use AVG at work, and it has a exclusive way of opening files which sometimes interferes with other apps, e.g. I've had repeated intermittent failures compiling from VS where it creates and then cannot delete a temporary LINK file depending on when AVG opened/closed it on the fly....
Add these to AVG exceptions, improves a lot:-
Should be a baclslash before each '*'.
Avast and AVG are the same company, takeover.
The fault seems to be with Avast and AVG.
