Qt embedded system is very useful in this topic but it is not open source, it has a price for every year and it isn't cheap.

Windows 10 IoT is awesome OS, with PowerShell you can start OS with a specific application but is there any way to install Qt framework and run Qt application at Windows 10 IoT? I tried from remote but it has to be.appx files, Windows IoT doesn't support exe?

From this topic, you can install but how?

What I tried

First I found this video from QtWS2015. He explains how to convert and how to deploy to Raspberry Qt projects. I followed his path and downloaded winRT QT 5.6.0, it included ARM, and any other platform.

After that I ran qmake in the folder winrt_armv7_msvc2015 typing

qmake -tp vc CONFIG+=windeployqt

First I got error environment path. cmd says there isn't any path for uuidgen.exe. I didn't know what was that and I didn't know where was it. I searched and I found it in SDK Folder but I checked all SDK folder, I found only Win7.1a (in my path C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1A\Bin) and I added path in my cmd.

Everything was good from there. I opened project with Visual Studio, clicked Remote Machine, after one or two seconds I got this error:

enter image description here

I can see Qt Logo in Raspberry Pi monitor but always one or second later get this error.

I searched and I found this solution, some application doesn't work 10.0.10540, maybe try 10.0.10240 and formatted and installed that version but result is the same I get same error.

    I dont see any support for Windows IoT on the QT website. It may be possible to run it on IoT Enterprise, but that requires an Intel board.

You don't install the complete Qt toolset on the target , but on your development machine .

  • there is so much information in the air. Should i look at "Building Qt 5 on Windows 8 WinRT" part ? Can you link any example for that ? Commented Feb 17, 2016 at 19:34
