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., C:\Qt\%VERSION%.

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:

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.

Note: The configure option -qtlibinfix cannot take a version number as an argument. For example: -qtlibinfix 5.6.0 should be specified as -qtlibinfix QtCore5.6.0.dll.

Step 4: Build Qt Library

To build Qt type:

nmake install

That's all. Qt is now installed.

Qt Examples

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 doc\html.

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.
