Problems with Open-Source Downloads read and

Please add verbose logging and more documentation to CtCreator build Problems.

  • Hi all,
    in general I use CtCreator with MS Visual Studio (2017) build tools.
    If I have installed all the tools new it runs just fine. But when I do some updates Qt or VS, I have to spend useless hours to get rid of problems like "```

    D:\Qt\5.11.2\msvc2017_64\bin\qmake.exe" D:\Qt\Examples\Qt-5.11.2\widgets\itemviews\addressbook\ -spec win32-msvc "CONFIG+=debug" "CONFIG+=qml_debug"
    Error while building/deploying project addressbook (kit: Desktop Qt 5.11.2 MSVC2017 64bit)
    When executing step "qmake"

    Most of the time I have to reinstall all from the scratch. That is not cool actually.
    What I have found was " \msvc2015_64\bin\qtenv2.bat".
    But how and when does it get called, what happends when vcvarsall.bat isn´t found?
    On which location are the CtCreator settings stored.
    How to get rid of orphaned kits, (kits! not kids :P ).
    It sucks enormous to waste time for nothing just because a lack of information.

    @M.O.H If you want some improvements in QtCreator (not CtCreator) then you should go to Qt bug tracker and file a request there. This is a user forum, it does not make sense to request changes in QtCreator here.
