No default repositories in Maintenance Tool


when I start MaintenanceTool.exe (Windows 7, Qt 5.1.1, MinGW 4.8), all I can do with it is remove all components. For the package manager or updates, I need a repository. The “Default repositories” entry is empty, and I don’t know what to enter in temporary or user repositories. I’ve looked around a bit on your website and googled, but could not find anything.
Where can I find a list of Qt repository URLs?

I have a similar problem – I haven’t been able to find the default paths yet and I’m reluctant to reinstall over a working system.

Does anyone know where the repos are please?

My workaround:

(i) Download Qt online installer Qt Project Downloads []
(ii) Create a dummy installation directory (e.g. c:\temp\QtTemp)
(iii) try and install only those components you’re interested in to this directory (in my case just the Android components)
(iv) copy the new components across to the location it would have been in had the maintenance tool been working (e.g. C:\Qt\Qt5.1.1\)

Not ideal, but seems to have worked for my specific case.
