      Description

      http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.2/5.2.0/qt-windows-opensource-5.2.0-mingw48_opengl-x86-offline.exe

      Using the MinGW version that comes with the official Qt 5.2 installer, I was not able to produce a working debug build of Qt Creator. Trying to run such a build under GDB results in the following error message:

      qmake.exe -r "CONFIG+=debug"
      [...]
      mingw32-make.exe -j 9
      [...]
      gdb bin\qtcreator.exe

      A solution that I found, is to use this custom 64bit build of Qt and the included MinGW version (64bit, SEH):
