I have been spending the whole day trying to figure out how to compile the mysql driver for qt so that i can import a database into table view, but nothing that I have found has helped me out. I am currently using qt 5.5 and Mysql server 5.7. My issue is that I get a certain error when running the following command in the qt command prompt:
qmake "INCLUDEPATH+=%mysql%\include" "LIBS+=%mysql%\lib\libmysql.lib" -o Makefile mysql.pro
And I get the error "cannot find file: mysql.pro"
I don't understand. Am I missing the file in the directory? Or have I not installed qt properly?
