Fresh installed Qt has Kit problems
follow this guide:
last time ive just installed Qt and everything was fine until my motherboard blew up.
New Laptop now, installed Qt and ive got now problems with the Kits.
I used the Windows Installer ( Qt Creator 4.8.0 Community ) and just checked that i need Qt 5.12 ...
and now i only can use one kit and that always crashes ... i need the MSVC2017 64b kit ...
Dunno why a fresh installation has this problem, sadly ive installed it again after the first try resulted in the same problem.
Does someone knows what im doing wrong with the installation? :(
May need some help ...
Last time everything just worked well.
Maybe a silly question but, do you have Visual Studio 2017 installed ?
... and just to add to @SGaist:
i need the MSVC2017 64b kit ...
Then you don't need all the other Qt versions... I'd just uninstall them.
@SGaist no i had not installed MS VS 2017, nothing else then Qt was installed, i installed now MS VS 2017 but it didnt changed anything, still same problems :(
@aha_1980 at first i need something thats running, than i can uninstall whatever i want :D
Another potentially silly question: did you select the C++ items to install when installing Visual Studio ?
@SGaist yeah i did. does Qt requires a fully working MS VS 17 Version? Thought i could just download Qt and have fun :x
No, you just need the Visual Studio C++ compiler, as it cannot be distributed with Qt.
If you want to debug, you also need the console debugger
cdbfrom the Windows Debugging Tools included in the Windows Kit.
Microsoft doesn't allow do redistribute its compilers so if you want to get started immediately, then use the MinGW version for which the Qt installer provides also the compiler.
As for VS2017, no you don't need it, you can install the Visual Studio Build Tools.
jeez damn, last time we had to do the homework at our uni with MS VS and for the project i decided to switch to Qt ... resulted in a nice 1.0 but i forgot that ive had installed MS VS first.
ok now Qt sees way more compilers etc but it doesnt update the kits ... is there a possibility to "update" the kits that Qt searches again for the good settings?
( it would be damn nice if Qt would warn in the installation that MS VS should be already installed x.x )
@aha_1980 for my project ive just used qDebug() so damn often :D
@MaKoZer When you select a Kit, you get all the options in the lower area. Check there if anything is still misconfigured - or let us check ;)
@aha_1980 may u send me a screen from a well configured MSVC2017 64bit? dont know what to use there :/
thought there would be an option that it checks again, last time i had to do nothing and everything worked :/
@MaKoZer I cannot, don't even have Windows here ;)
Why don't you send your screenshot?
@aha_1980 i used the good old "uninstall and reinstall" method and now it just says "no debugger set up".
you said, that i need this CDB debugger, in which kit from MS VS is it?
im already searching it .... i think then im finished :D
The debugger is another download. Microsoft doesn't make the Visual Studio debugger available outside Visual Studio.
solved :) thx for helping
