qt installation (with vs10)
Normally, configure.exe (with some switches, if needed) works just fine. Did you call it via
There is a configure (without .exe) which happens to be a unix shell script, and that does not work on windows, of course :-)
Calling nmake without running configure.exe before will not work, as there are no makefiles to use.
I’ve tried everything I could think of, including
after or before the ‘cd’, none of it works.
So do I need to add something else to ‘path’ ?
Do I have to do something related to this note : “Note: If you don’t use the configured shells, which is available in the application menu, in the Open Source Versions of Qt, configure requires that sh.exe is not in the path or that it is run from msys. This also goes for mingw32-make.” ?
okay, I’ve made a search in my computer and it is in
sorry. I thought it was a Microsoft windows command or something, so I didn’t try to find the executable before.
So what do I need to do now exactly?
You haven’t answered me regarding the path variables and the note, both of which are mentionned in the website you gave me.
I don’t know for the note. If you don’t have MinGW or a bash or such installed, you probably don’t need to take care of it.
I never set a PATH variable when I compiled on Windows. Just start the Visual Studio Command prompt and enter:
- cd C:\Qt\4.7.0\qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.0
And then have a cup of coffee or better go for lunch or dinner – it takes a looooong time until everything is compiled :-)
so I typed it and here is the result :
- Unable to detect the platform from environment. Use -platform command lineargument or set the QMAKES
- PEC environment variable and run configure again
- See the README file for a list of supported operating systems and compilers.
- Usage: (<<followed by hundreds of lines explaining its complicated usage>>)
The default options seem to have failed (“Unable to detect the platform”) and the usage of this executable seems quite complicated, so maybe you can help me once more :)
The VS addin does work independently from your Qt version. Just run the installer. You then must make your self compiled Qt visible to the plugin, there is an entry in the new Qt menu of Visual Studio – just look around. Some more info on the addin can be found here [doc.qt.nokia.com]
Just play around :-)
Can you give me a more detailed answer please ? I’ve been trying to look and play around but with no result. – I don’t really understand why you ask me to run the ‘installer’.
I thought that “That’s all. Qt is now installed.”, once I have done nmake. – I don’t really understand either how to build a qt application from vs, it still seems not to be working. – Finally, I didn’t get which files or directories are part of the installation/compilation process and can be deleted.
