    Default error when building project when executing step 'qmake'

    Just installed qt creator 5.1.1 32 bit and i tried to run an example application from qt. It showed me this compile output
    19:17:21: Running steps for project application...
    19:17:21: Could not start process "C:\Qt\Qt5.1.1\5.1.1\mingw48_32\bin\qmake.exe" C:\Qt\Qt5.1.1\5.1.1\mingw48_32\examples\widgets\ma inwindows\application\application.pro -r -spec win32-g++ "CONFIG+=debug" "CONFIG+=declarative_debug" "CONFIG+=qml_debug"
    Error while building/deploying project application (kit: Desktop Qt 5.1.1 MinGW 32bit)
    When executing step 'qmake'
    19:17:22: Elapsed time: 00:00.
    Do you know where the problem is?

    Just installed qt creator 5.1.1 MSVC 2010 32
    Umm... you mean Qt not QtCreator, since QtCreator is still on version 4.x.x
    And in addition,
    (kit: Desktop Qt 5.1.1 MinGW 32bit)
    Which does not fit to you saying MSVC 2010.

    I don't know if this plays a role in the reason the build breaks for you, but it would be a good start to clear these points first.

    Yes the right one is Desktop Qt 5.1.1 MinGW 32bit. I'm sorry for the wrong name
    and i saw in the about qt creator it said, based on qt 5.1.1 (msvc 2010,32 bit)

    Try executing the steps one by one.
    Try first running qmake on the project.
    Does it succeed?

    no, I mean running qmake on the project.
    In QtCreator, right click the project and select "Run qmake" or on the console in the folder that contains the *.pro file, run qmake <name>.pro

    Hmm...
    Try the following:
    1. Rename your *.pro file to *.pro_old
    2. in the console, from the root folder of your source run:
    qmake -project

    This should have create a new *.pro file.
    If it did, try simply to call (from the console):
    qmake

    Sorry but where should I actually save the project file?

    There where it is now.
    At the root of your project source directory.
