It would be nice if AppVeyor hosts Qt libraries somewhere in C:\Libraries\Qt like a Boost.

Qt installer: http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/online_installers/qt-opensource-windows-x86-1.6.0-5-online.exe

    That would be awesome! Do you plan to put Qt 5.3?

    Does the link above point to Qt 5.3 installer?

    The Qt open-source installation package are located here:
    - https://qt-project.org/downloads (current website)
    - http://www.qt.io/download-open-source/ (future website)

    I personnaly would be interested by Qt 5.3.2 / 32bit with opengl: http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.3/5.3.2/qt-opensource-windows-x86-msvc2013_opengl-5.3.2.exe

    OK, it's been installed to C:\Qt\Qt5.3.2. Remember, it's on Unstable image, so you should specify os: unstable in your appveyor.yml.

    Let me know about the results.

    I did just a few try but I realized I made a mistake: I'm not using
    Is it possible to switch? Otherwise I will try to compile with msvc2013.

    Hello, did you keep the MSVC2013 one or did you ditch it altogether ?

    Best regards,

    Hi, it would be great to have both the mingw and visual studio binaries. The binaries can be used side-by-side. Using the online installer


    and checking all packages would install all pre-build versions of Qt for different Visual Studio Versions as well as mingw and Windows Phone, Android, etc. Could it be installed on AppVeyor?

    OK, no problem. Will install both.

    It seems the Visual Studio version of Qt was removed again (at least I can't find it at C:\Qt\Qt5.3.2\5.3), but I got my application to compile with the MinGW version. However, now I'm building the installer and I'm having difficulties shipping the DLLs required by the executable. I suspect this may be because Qt was compiled with a different version of MinGW than exists in C:\MinGW.

    So my question is mainly: could the MinGW version that is available in the Qt Installer be installed as well? For Qt 5.3 this was MinGW 4.8.2.

    Even better would be to also install the recently released Qt 5.4 and MinGW 4.9.1.

    Alternatively it would be nice at least for my project if the "msvc2013 32-bit OpenGL" and "msvc2013 64-bit OpenGL" versions of Qt were included.

    All of this can be conveniently installed alongside each other using the Qt Online Installer for Windows available at http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/online_installers/qt-opensource-windows-x86-online.exe

    Thanks a lot for the great service!

    Could install everything this or early next week to the unstable image.

    I'm going to install mingw 4.8.2 32-bit to the same location. What packages are interested in first of all? Or even better if you have a command to install required packages - that will help a lot :)

    Will install Qt too for both mingw and vs2013.

    Unfortunately it does not look to me like the Qt Online Installer has a command line option at the moment. Here is a screenshot of the components I would need, but of course others may want to use different versions since there's a lot to choose from:


    I realize a command-line would be best, but at least with this installer you can easily select / deselect and upgrade any Qt components.

    Thanks for the instructions. We are working on a new image with both Qt 5.4 and 5.3 installed. It will be available tomorrow and under name MinGW.

    OK, there is a new image available called MinGW. You can select it on Environment tab of project settings or in appveyor.yml:

    os: MinGW

    Qt is in C:\Qt:

    • Qt 5.4 (C:\Qt\5.4)
      • MingW 4.9.1 OpenGL
      • msvc2013 64-bit OpenGL
      • msvc2013 32-bit OpenGL
    • Qt 5.3 (C:\Qt\5.3)
      • MingW 4.8.1 OpenGL
      • msvc2013 64-bit OpenGL
      • msvc2013 32-bit OpenGL
    • Tools
      • MinGW 4.8.2 (C:\Qt\Tools\mingw482_32)
      • MinGW 4.9.1 (C:\Qt\Tools\mingw491_32)

    If everything is fine we'll finally replace unstable with it. Let me know about your results.

    Thanks for installing Qt 5.4. For some reason the directory "C:\Qt\Qt5.4\" does not exist, even though I use "os: MinGW" and also have MinGW selected as the OS in the settings. Any ideas?

  22. 22 Posted by bjorn on 23 Dec, 2014 01:54 PM

    bjorn's Avatar

    @shred According to the message from Feodor Qt 5.4 is at C:\Qt\5.4 (and will have another subdirectory depending on whether you want the MinGW, VS 32 or VS 64 version of Qt). This is where the Qt Online Installer puts it by default.

    Thanks Feodor for the quick installation! I'll let you know the results as soon as I had a chance to try it.

    You can do a soft link to that folder like I did for 5.3:

    mklink /j C:\Qt\Qt5.4 C:\Qt

    @Feodor I'm now using the Qt 5.3 MinGW installation for building and deploying both "daily" builds and releases and it works like a charm. My project isn't compiling with Qt 5.4 MinGW, but I have the same problem locally. I may later spend some time enabling also VS and Qt 5.4 builds but for now this is all I really need.

    For reference, this is my appveyor.yml:


    Thanks a lot for the awersome service!

    In the meantime I've switched from using qmake to Qbs (a build tool shipping with Qt Creator) and am now compiling my application with Qt 5.4 MinGW 4.9.1, which also seems to be working great.

    I need Qt 5.4/msvc2013_64_opengl. My question is if I choose OS: Mingw, can I still build with msvc2013?

    You don't need mingw image as this version of Qt is part of default image: http://www.appveyor.com/docs/installed-software

    Looking at your link, I'm puzzled:

    • msvc2013 32-bit OpenGL: C:\Qt\5.4\msvc2013_64_opengl

    • msvc2013 64-bit OpenGL: C:\Qt\5.4\msvc2013_opengl

    there is the same "mistake" with Qt\5.3 too: why 32-bit version has 64 in its directory name? it is supposed to be for producing 64-bit Qt binaries.
