    Question How to install QtSDK and QtCreator?

    Hi Folks!

    After a new Installation of my Windows PC i had to reinstall Qt. I went to http://qt.digia.com/ and saw damn, all goes commercial there!
    Ok, i figure out that it is possible to download Qt over qt-project.org > Download SDK. So i went there an saw no more Full Installer....what happen there?

    I download the Latest QtSDK 4.8.3 (MINGW) and install it. During Installation the Setup ask me for al valid Installation of MINGW ok,
    i install MINGW with the MINGW Webistaller of Sourceforge. After that i select the MINGW Folder and the Setup continues.

    After Installation is saw no QtCreator, i wonder again and take a further look at qt-project.org. Ok, i have to download QtCreator seperatly.
    I do this an install the Version 2.6.

    When this was done i started the Creator an load a Demo Appilcation. I compile with an Error 2....what's that? I tooked a Look in the Project Folder and saw that the compile was done
    but the Programm would not start out of the Creator.

    Did anyone know what's wrong with the Installation. I don't really know how to install the SDK correct and wich Version to choose...

    Please help me!
    Best Regards

    There is a link there to Nokia's developer website saying that the sdk can be found there.

    But the SDK hasn't been updated lately so maybe a good ideea you should install a new version from qt-project.org download section, manually install Creator, MinGW (or another compiler) and setup everything until Digia release an updated Qt SDK.

    Digia won't update or release a full package anymore. Only commercial Version!

    It would be pretty "stupid" not to - but anyway is not that hard to install/configure Qt (plus Creator, compiler and other needed tools) - but i really think they will make an installer for Qt.

    Hi
    I had to reinstall Qt in Windows 7 today.
    I did the usual but i came up with this Error2 also!
    There is someone here talking about editing the mkspecswin32-g++qmake.conf.
    Where exactly is this file?

    The directory mkspecs is in your Qt home directory. win32-g++ is a subdirectory thereof. Please post the results if you manage to compile Qt with MinGW, I've been working on that too.

    Preface: I'm an absolute beginner both at Qt and programming in general.

    Output representative of the problem (tried to build and run "Animated Tiles" example):

    23:49:53: Running steps for project animatedtiles...
    23:49:53: Configuration unchanged, skipping qmake step.

    Error while building/deploying project animatedtiles (target: Desktop)
    When executing step 'Make'


    Hope this helps - I'd love to see a fix.

    Is it possible that this is related with the MinGw version?
    Tomorrow i will try older versions just in case.

    Looks like the problem is coming from an incorrect path for rcc.exe:

    https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-27237

    https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-27244

    I'll play with it more later today.


    Added after 4 minutes:


    In other words, I'm going to bump up to version 5 beta and see if the problem is still there.

    Well, Nope - no Qt5 for MinGW. Trying msvc2010 for now. I just want this to work without spending 90% of my time sifting through bug reports.

    Yes, it seems it was a deliberate choice to make installation of QT SDK (libraries + creator) a source of massive grief for all non paying users (at least for windows).

    That's really a pity. In the past years, I employed QT in my programming labs at my uni... not anymore.
    I can't ask students to go through all that mess. From this year, I will teach on a different IDE and different event-based libraries!

    I have temporarily put the installer for QtSDK on Qt Centre, it can be accessed here: http://www.qtcentre.org/QtSdk-online-win-x86-v1_2_1.exe

    There is no need for harsh moves. As far as I managed to read, QtSDK will come back when Qt5 is released and Digia updates it for Qt5.

    The SDK itself is available on gitorious (http://qt.gitorious.org/qtsdk) so one can monitor progress on his own. Remember that QtSDK is a relatively new product and before it was released people had to install Creator and the libraries separately, just like now. The only difference was that the Windows package had an option to download and install MinGW automatically (I don't know if it's still the case).
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.
