Hi All,
As i know the On windows system qt creator is build with msvc (Visual studio) compiler .The qt opensource sdk comes with mingw compiler . These are really not the very big problem when dealing with simple application or any thing else. The problem arises when we want to add the custom widget. Since the custom wiget is compiled with mingw so when we place the custom widget dll in the bin/designer folder,so in the form options it shows failed plugin, uses incompatiable lib expecte build windows msvc release got windows mingw release
So please help me for this problem

build your custom widget plug-in with msvc, or use a mingw build of qt-creator.

Well, it doesn't take much to recompile Qt Designer with mingw and then you can use all your plugins in mingw. A simple ./configure && make will usually get the job done.
