    Details

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Not Evaluated
    • Resolution: Cannot Reproduce
    • Affects Version/s: Qt Creator 4.8.0-beta1
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Labels:
    • Platform/s:
      Windows

      Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      • have several Visual Studio installations (MSVC2010, MSVC2015 & MSVC2017)
      • have Debugging Tools and / or Windows SDK installed (cdb for 32bit and 64bit)
      • have a Qt for MSVC (bin folder) in PATH
      • start QC with clean settings

      Current result:

      • the auto generated kit can not be used out of the box in most cases
      • compiler is most of the time not matching the one from the Qt (32bit vs 64bit) - or even worse (an incompatible MSVC version)
      • the auto selected cdb seems to be always 32bit (bad - if you have a Qt / compiler that is 64bit)

       

      Note: same applies when you have an existing build (removed the .user* files from the respective project path) with a Qt version that is no more configured inside QC (either by explicitly removing the kit / Qt version - or by restarting QC with a clean settings path) and try to import this existing build to the loaded project.
