    Default Trying to compile Qt for Windows CE

    Hi,

    After a long time searching through forums and websites... and after various attempts, I Finally compiled a Qt installation for WinCE. Some things that aren't mentioned anywhere that would solve some similar problems posted by other people that I too had to solve...
    Mainly, and this is a little help to other people having trouble at "configure -platform...", You have to install Qt libraries for windows VS2008! It didn't work anytime when I was trying with the mingw version.

    I installed Windows CE tools - Windows mobile 5.0 sdk.

    I installed Perl.

    Added to environment variables LIB, INCLUDE and PATH all that I could think of... so they ended up like this:
    PATH = C:\Perl64\site\bin;C:\Perl64\bin;C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoo t%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowe rShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Shared;C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\binn\;C:\Qt\4.7.1-VS\bin;C:\Qt\shadowbuild-mobile\bin;C:\Qt\4.7.1-VS;C:\Qt\2010.05\mingw;C:\Qt\2010.05\mingw\bin;C:\ Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\ce\bin\x86_arm
    LIB = C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\ce\lib\armv4i;C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows CE Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC SDK\Lib\ARMV4I
    INCLUDE = C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\ce\include;C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows CE Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC SDK\Include\Armv4i

    after all that and running the configure form the Qt VS2008 version folder I was able to compile without any errors... now here is my new headache:

    ...
    Qt is now configured for building. To start the build run:setcepaths.bat wincewm
    65professional-msvc2008 && nmake.
    To reconfigure, run 'nmake confclean' and configure.

    c:\Qt\shadow-build-mobile>setcepaths.bat wincewm65professional-msvc2008

    Can someone please enlighten me on this nmake error?

    I still haven't figured out why we have to build a Qt installation for winCE and why we cannot download it from anywhere...

    Another question... I've noticed that it creates a visual studio project called "projects", but it gives me an error when I open it (probably because I still have to make the nmake work). Now I have plugins that I'll need to compile for my WinCE application too. So, after I get the nmake to compile the damn Qt installation... Where will I put my project sources?

    Are you sure this is supposed to work with VS2008?
    A year or so back I did the same thing, and as far as I remember, the Qt configuration was not done for VS2008, and was only available for 2005.
    I ended up installing VS2005, and that worked.

    It could be that in the mean time VS2008 is also supported, but be sure to double check this.

    I'm not sure but I haven't read anywhere that it only works with VS2005... besides the Qt 4.7.1 library to download says (VS2008) dunno if it means that works with visual studio 2008.

    tmp\obj\release_static\qtmain_win.obj : fatal error LNK1112: module machine type

    this error I think that indicates that has something to do with my computer being x64... or does the choice of wincewm65professional interferes with my installed SDK version being 5.0?

    Since it was some time back, you need to check what I say here, but - as far as I remember, the winCE CONFIGURATION did not support VS2008, only 2005.
    Read the readme files about installation and configuration.

    There is something I don't get:
    after all that and running the configure form the Qt VS2008 version folder I was able to compile without any errors... now here is my new headache:

    ...
    Qt is now configured for building. To start the build run:setcepaths.bat wincewm
    So you say you have compiled Qt and yet after that your run the build again?
    this error I think that indicates that has something to do with my computer being x64...
    I don't know about that.
    It depends if the Qt cross complication config supports x64 to WinCE.

    Maybe some other users who have more experience with cross compiling to WinCE can help you more about this issue.

    Sorry, my bad... I successfully ran configure without any errors.

    I was following this guide http://www.qtcentre.org/wiki/index.p..._on_Windows_CE The error was when I tried to nmake, as you can see on my first post.

    I found this saying that VS2008 is supported http://doc.troll.no/master-snapshot/...roduction.html

    I'll wait for someone to light my way then thanks anyway
