Requirements for Windows

Instructions in this documentation assume Windows 7 or 10, 32-bit or 64-bit.

Minimum Hardware Requirements

Approximate minimal hardware requirements for running Boot to Qt are:

  • 256 MB of RAM
  • 500 MHz CPU, 1 GHz preferred for 60-FPS velvet-smooth UI
  • OpenGL ES 2.0 support *

* On GPU-less hardware, Qt Quick 2D Renderer can replace the OpenGL ES 2.0 requirement (with some limitations on graphics capabilities).

Requirements for Connecting Embedded Linux Devices

From Qt Creator 4.9 onwards, OpenSSH is used the for connections to remote embedded Linux devices during deployment and debugging. The OpenSSH suite is not delivered with Qt Creator, so you must download it and install it on your development PC.

There are several alternative OpenSSH downloads available. For example, the Git Windows installation package comes with the OpenSSH clients. For more information, see Git Downloads.

For more information how to configure Qt Creator for OpenSSH and embedded Linux devices, see Connecting Embedded Linux Devices.

Available under certain Qt licenses.
