      Description

      Upgrading to VS TOOLS 2.9.1 from 2.8.1.6 makes it impossible to compile projects developed with Qt 5.15.1

      If you try to compile after the upgrade you got the error:

      C:\Users\Bar\AppData\Local\QtMsBuild\qt_globals.targets(786,7): error MSB4184: The expression "[System.IO.File]::ReadAllText(C:\Users\Bar\AppData\Local\QtMsBuild\qt.natvis.xml)" cannot be evaluated. Could not find file 'C:\Users\Bar\AppData\Local\QtMsBuild\qt.natvis.xml'.

       

      As suggested by another thread I updated to the last Qt project file but this create the following issues:

      • The version of C++ was automatically updated to C++17 but I cannot use this version
      • Some specialized class from boost::geometry didn't compile any more due to change to many settings on C++ language options

      The only solution was to install the previous version and disable automatic update
