[Solved] Cannot build an app for desktop
I’ve installed a Qt SDK 1.0.1 and created a simple (empty, actually) GUI application. The project wizard said that this option is for desktop applications, but I can’t compile the app for desktop (Windows). I went to project settings and created a target for a desktop, but it doesn’t work because there’s no path to qmake stored in environment variables. What should I install and set up to be able to build apps for a desktop?
no you can install it later, and then from the Creator installed via the Nokia SDK you can then select which Qt version you want to use by … Tools->Options->Qt4
you just have to point the qmake location (this is your <4.7.1 folder>\bin\qmake.exe
and the location to MinGW directory. MinGW is not shipped with Qt 4.7.1 libraries
Do you have Qt SDK 4.7.0 installed earlier? In that case the MinGW is also installed and the directory is already available there.
Else for starters, its easier to just install the Qt SDK from here [qt.nokia.com] and later try 4.7.1
