[Moved] Qt Creator proposes strange directory structure

  • I have downloaded the Qt-Creator 2.3.0 and it proposes now the following directory structure for the Microsoft VC Compiler:
    For debug: PROJECT-build-desktop-Qt_4_7_4_for_Desktop_-_MSVC2008__Qt_SDK__Debug
    For release: PROJECT-build-desktop-Qt_4_7_4_for_Desktop_-_MSVC2008__Qt_SDK__Release

    But in both cases it contains a debug and release directory.

    Can someone explain me what this change should be? Because it has broken my whole projects which are using libraries.

  • Open Project page in qt creator and change shadow build directory

  • Thanks for the advice, that might work, but it requires me to go thru 30 projects whenever i checkout from the source control. This should be configurable as a default setting.

  • Can someone help me with this issue?

    if i set in the pro file the following:
    CONFIG += debug_and_release build_all

    then it will create all either in the PROJECT-build-desktop-Qt_4_7_4_for_Desktop_-_MSVC2008__Qt_SDK__Debug or in PROJECT-build-desktop-Qt_4_7_4_for_Desktop_-_MSVC2008__Qt_SDK__Release.

    This is not logical anymore.

  • After a lot of tests, i have found a suitable solution for me.
    This thread can be closed.
