macOS Mojave and Qt Creator

  • On my iMac I'm using Qt Creator 4.7.2, Based On Qt 5.11.2 (Clang 8.0 (Apple), 64 bit), Built on Oct 23 2018 14:00:18 From revision 66ed57ce3e.

    The iMAC is running macOS Mojave version 10.14.1

    When I try to run build my project on the iMAC I see in "General Messages":

    Project WARNING: Qt has only been tested with version 10.13 of the platform SDK, you're using 10.14.
    Project WARNING: This is an unsupported configuration. You may experience build issues, and by using
    Project WARNING: the 10.14 SDK you are opting in to new features that Qt has not been prepared for.
    Project WARNING: E.g., 10.14 enables dark mode and layer-backed views, which Qt 5.11 does not support.
    Project WARNING: Please downgrade the SDK you use to build your app to version 10.13, or configure
    Project WARNING: with CONFIG+=sdk_no_version_check when running qmake to silence this warning.

    I also have a macBook Pro running mac os high sierra, on the macBook Pro the same project works without issue, unfortunately on the iMAC it will not run at all.

    Is they're anything I can do on the iMAC to resolve this?

    It seems you can either downgrade the SDK to version 10.13
    or use CONFIG+=sdk_no_version_check to not have it show this warning.
    I wonder if the CONFIG+=sdk_no_version_check goes into apps
    .pro file.

    I wonder if the CONFIG+=sdk_no_version_check goes into apps
    .pro file.

    or you append it to the qmake call in project settings.

    Btw, which Qt version (not Creator based on) is this?

  • Thank you, I'm working away from home and my iMac until Friday evening (30th November), I will give this a try when I get back.

    @aha_1980, the Qt version is 5.11.2
