      Description

      There is an existing blog post that describes how to use Qt VS Tools to cross-compile for a Raspberry Pi 3:

      It would be good to include this information in the official docs at https://doc.qt.io/qtvstools/ where it is more visible to users and where it can be updated for future releases if any relevant changes occur.

      A customer reported trying to follow the blog post, but had to add the following to make it work:

      • Create symlinks to Qt tools in the /bin folder to the executables in the /libexec folder so they could be found
      • Ensure compiler version was set to C++17 (this was not done by the wizard automatically even though Qt 6 requires this)
      • Ensure compilers are set to gcc and g++ for compiling, and g++ for linking
