I had a look around a while ago and from what I saw VS was a requirement for developing for WM6.5

If there was another way of doing things I assume it would have been mentioned on one of these pages:

http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7/requirements-wince.html [doc.qt.nokia.com]

http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7/install-wince.html [doc.qt.nokia.com]

Hopefully someone else will chime in if I’m mistaken.

I’m aware of that, but I don’t want to buy VS or use it.

I want to know if I can have a clean solution with Qt & Windows Mobile 65
I saw that when WM SDK installs it prerequisites VS 2005 SP1, so my first question is answered. NO

I’ll install it and then can I *use only Qt *?
Can I uninstall VS?

My understanding is that in order to develop for Windows Mobile you’ll need a Visual Studio installation – ie if you uninstall Visual Studio you’ll lose the ability to do Windows Mobile development.

You can use Visual Studio Express to work with Qt for Windows (ie the desktop). So the posts are still valid, but only for desktop development.

Qt for WinCE requires a Windows Mobile SDK and Windows Mobile 6 SDKs require a non-express edition of Visual Studio.
