    Im starting a course that covers qt programming, and i want to set it up so i can code/build everything on my computer.

    i have installed the QT creator binary, which to my belief installs all the necessary libraries and everything so i am able to compile a qt app. however its not working. i was hoping somebody here would be able to provide help.

    currently i create an app, (entitled basic.cpp) then type 'qmake -project' it gives me the message 'QFileInfo::absolutePath: Constructed with empty filename' then it creates a file? what am i supposed to do, so i can compile it and itll run properly. thanks in advance

    You are meant to download the Qt SDK rather than just the Qt Creator binary. Download it here:

    you want the download entitled ¨Download Qt SDK for Mac (554MB)¨.
