What’s the difference between the Nokia Qt SDK and the Qt SDK?

 

I just found the answer to this question, but it took me a while, so mthis should save you some time.

This page gives side-by-side comparison of Nokia Qt SDK and the Qt SDK:

Or for those who want to know the answer without clicking:

  • “Qt SDK” is for desktop development
  • “Nokia Qt SDK” is for mobile development

Lame attempt to provide a memory hook:

Nokia makes mobile phones. With the “Nokia Qt SDK” you can develop applications for Nokia mobile phones.

The question is of course – what if you want to develop for both desktop and development at the same time? :)

My suggestion for that is that you install the Nokia Qt SDK, and then install Qt for whatever desktop platform you’re on in addition. Qt Creator will pick up this newly installed Qt as well and work out of the box.

I tested it also and it is working fine.

Same i use Qt SDK and Nokia SDK with last snapshot QtCreator from nokia ftp. Working almost fine. But only one error appear in Qt Creator in settings tab Qt->SDK for 60: The file ‘devices.xml’ containing the device SDK configuration could not be found looking at the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Symbian\EPOC SDKs\CommonPath or the common program data directories.

Hi, I too wish to install the Nokia Qt SDK for Windows and the Qt SDK for Windows and perhaps even the Qt Creator 2.1 Beta for Windows.

So do you install these 3 packages in separate or the same directories?

I’ve installed Nokia Qt SDK and Qt SDK in separate directories. Creator and Qt for VS2008 were built from gitoriuos.

And if you want to keep the configuration separated, use the command line option -settingspath (I’m not certain, but it seems it is new, available in 2.1 beta).
For example, I use this to not mix the current stable release of Qt Creator and the one built from git. Need to check if it works like this on Windows, though.
