Looking for Qt5 mingw-w64 builds



  • Hello guys,

    I've been away from Qt (and programming in general) for almost 2 years.
    Now, I'd like to get back to where I left, but to my surprise, things have changed since then... (no, really!?)

    Anyway, my biggest issue at the moment is that I cannot find anymore the repository with the mingw-w64 builds of Qt for windows. I remember it was a sourceforge repository, but by searching I can only find this one:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingwbuilds
    It is an old repository, last updated in 2013. Since then, it seems it has been merged with the main mingw-w64 project repository (as stated in the repository home page) at this link:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64
    But this last repository doesn't provide any Qt builds - or at least, I am unable to find them...

    Does anyone happen to have the link to the repository that I am looking for?
    Otherwise, do you have any alternative repository that offers (almost) up-to-date builds ( with respect to new Qt releases) compiled with:
    mingw-w64 / Win32 threads / SEH exceptions / ANGLE
    I am targetting exclusively windows environments, Vista (probably not, more likely 7) and later versions, but both 32 and 64 bit versions of the builds would be required.
    Qt help documentation can be omitted from the build, I don't use it anyway. Example projects would be nice to have instead.

    Thanks in advance to anyone.

    Hi,

    IIRC it was http://www.tver-soft.org/qt64 which is not defunct.

    IIRC, Qt 5.12 pre-built binaries provides a 64bit build for MinGW.



  • Thanks for the reply, @SGaist

    I have managed to recover a bookmark with the project page - so lucky, but unlucky as well... The project is dead, and only offers Qt builds up to version 5.5.
    If anyone is interested, the project page is here:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/qt64ng/

    So now I'm definitely looking for alternatives... If anyone has any suggestions, it would be awesome.

    Also, in the meantime, I'm looking forward into compiling Qt myself, but my poor i5-4690 CPU is going to take forever and I'd like to avoid doing that...

    Qt 5.12 pre-built binaries provides a 64bit build for MinGW.

    Just use the online installer, you get Qt 5.12 and MinGW as 64 bit now :)



  • I have noticed that the installer now offers mingw64 builds, neat! Except for the 35GB of installed packages....
    Anyway, I'm not sure about the compilation config for that build, where can I find more info about it?

    You installed way too much. Probably all UWP and MSVC versions, too.

    Don't know, but I remember having heard that question already some time ago.



  • Yes, I think it installed all configs, UWP, Android, mingw64, MSVC... I didn't really pay attention to the packages that it would install, and when it was too late I have let it do it's thing... I have 1TB to spare just for programming and compilation, I don't actually care :D

    I'll search the forums for the answer to my previous question, thanks for help :)
