Installing Qt for Windows CE
Qt for Windows CE has some requirements that are given in more detail in the Qt for Windows CE Requirements document.
Step 1: Install the License File (Commercial Editions Only)
Uncompress the files to the directory where you want to build; e.g.,
Note: The install path must not contain any spaces.
Step 2: Set the Environment Variables
In order to build and use Qt, the
PATH environment variable needs to be extended:
Make sure the environment variables for your compiler are set. Or simply use the "Visual Studio Command Prompt" from the Start menu.
Step 3: Configure Qt
To configure Qt, for a custom SDK, type the following:
C: cd \Qt\%VERSION% configure -platform -xplatform wincewm70customsdk-msvc2008
If you want to configure Qt for another platform or with other options, type
configure -help to get a list of all available options. See the
README file for the list of supported platforms.
configure option -qtlibinfix cannot take a version number as an argument. For example:
-qtlibinfix 5.6.0 should be specified as
Step 4: Build Qt Library
To build Qt type:
nmake nmake install
That's all. Qt is now installed.
To get started with Qt, you can check out the examples found in the
examples directory of your Qt installation. The documentation can be found in
Note: If you reconfigure Qt for a different platform, make sure you start with a new clean console to get rid of the platform dependent include directories.
