Qt creator directory error - Qt 5.12 + MinGW 7.30 64 bit

  • Hi,

    I just installed Qt 5.12 with MinGW 7.30 64bit (and VS2017 64bit). Qt Creator auto detects both compilers and generates the kits, but for MinGW it identifies the wrong directories to the compiler/debugger (32bit instead of 64bit). 0_1550434389645_wrong_dirs.PNG
    Is there a way to change it? I temporary resolved it by renaming the dir in the Qt installation directory, but I would like my auto detected kits to point to the intended dirs :)
    Thanks for the help,

    May be its a bug? .Do you have a 64bit debugger folder?
    If so you can add the new debugger configuration from the add button manually.
    if you want to edit the existing one then you can navigate to C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Roaming\QtProject\qtcreator\debuggers.xml to edit the path

  • Yes, I have the 64bit folder (i copied it to 32bit folder as a workaround).
    Thanks for the tip. I saw that file already but completely overlooked the path there.
    I indeed think it's a bug (the same error actually happens for the gcc compiler path).
