Known Issues – Qt 5.3.2

All platforms

  • Installation over the existing installation not supported
    • QTIFW-278: SDK 5.1.0 rc1 : installation over existing installation fails
  • Examples in Qt Creator Welcome mode is empty
    • Workaround: Start Qt Creator with clean settings (e.g. for temporary testing: ‘-settingspath /some/temp/dir’
  • Qt Creator still shows 5.3.0 as Qt / Kit version number, although I updated
    • QTBUG-39749: Qt Creator caches the Qt / Kit version names in your profile. Workaround is to nuke your local Qt Creator settings.
  • Android Debugging does not work out-of-the-box for C++-only projects
    • QTCREATORBUG-13006: Workaround: Select combined C++ and QML debugging in the project’s Run settings, even if the project does not use QML at all.


  • QTBUG-35516: example directory in binary package has wrong permissions (creating problems for global installations)
    • Workaround: Fix permissions with ‘chmod g+rx,o+rx 5.2.0/gcc_64/examples’
  • QTBUG-39897: Packaged libQtWebKit fails to load: conflict between (system) libxml2 and shipped libicu
    • This can show up e.g. in crashes when trying to open Qt Creator’s Help, Widget Designer, or Qt Assistant.


  • if you want to install a Qt for Visual Studio be sure you have the related Visual Studio installed
  • Qt Creator does not support Windows XP.
    • Workaround: Disable ‘Welcome’, ‘QmlProfiler’, QmlDesigner’ plugins
  • Qt Creator does require a working DirectX/DirectDraw backend
    • Enable Accelerated 3D support if you run Windows in e.g. VirtualBox, VMWare
  • QTBUG-32864: WMF plugin fails to load on Windows Vista (no service found for – “org.qt-project.qt.mediaplayer”)
    • Workaround: If you target Windows Vista, rebuild the plugin (qtmultimedia/src/plugins/wmf) using the Windows Vista SDK.
  • QTBUG-33788: Widgets in QGraphicsView via QGraphicsProxyWidget can’t receive QTabletEvent

WinRT / Windows Phone

  • If you want to install Qt for Windows RT or Phone, please have also the according Visual Studio installed (Visual Studio for Windows, Visual Studio for Windows Phone)
  • Note that not all mobile related modules are supported (e.g. Geopositioning, bluetooth, etc)
  • Even though Qt Cloud Services are part of the package, they are not supported yet.
  • Qt Quick Controls might have some wrong behaviors.
  • Automatic kit registration wrongly sets up WinRT target as local desktop target. This is related to the WinRT plugin not enabled by default. Please open Help->About Plugins, enable WinRT and restart Qt Creator

Mac OS X

  • Qt binary packages: qmake may stop with an error claiming the macosx10.8 SDK can’t be found.
    • Workaround: Edit clang_64/mkspecs/qdevice.pri, comment out the QMAKE_MAC_SDK line.
  • QTBUG-31724: can’t debug into qt libs on Mac (it hasn’t worked since 5.0.0)
    • Workaround: Compile Qt on your own (configure -developer-build provides both release and debug libs)
  • QTBUG-35211: Apps using Qt WebKit 2.0 are not deployable on Mac OS X (QtWebProcess fails to deploy/start)
  • QTBUG-35317: Qt Quick1 apps that use Qt WebKit 1.0 fail to deploy on Mac OS X
  • QTBUG-35506: Qt Quick Controls applications launched using qmlscene might not display the menubar until they lose and regain focus
