View Full Version : First time home installation

3rd October 2015, 20:47
I installed Qt on my home laptop running windows 10. I also installed MinGW. On installation Qt complained about not having my compiler configured as well as not having a debugger installed. MinGW is in my path so I hoped Qt would find the C++ compiler in MinGW. Can anyone offer any advice on a good way to install and configure Qt as a first time install? Thanks.

Use the Qt binary installer and have it install its own functional MingW unless you have a particular reason not to. The MingW tools are available in the list of components to install.

If you must install MingW separately then you can tell Qt Creator about it in the Kits configuration pages. Tools>Options>C++ from memory.
