Qt – Adding External Libs to your Project


During Qt Development with Qt Creator, emerged the necessity to add more libraries to my project, at the actual state of art Qt Creator does not provides an automated/graphical system to add libraries and since is using GCC is not possible to use #pragma comment(), so we have to modify by hand some files, here how to.

Suppose that you need to add psapi library, first of all locate into project directory Makefile.Debug and Makefile.Release

Open one of the two files (depends on how you need to deploy you program) and locate

LIBS        =        -L”c:\Qt\QtCreator\qt\lib” -lmingw32 -lqtmaind -lQtGuid4 -lQtCored4

now you can easly add your lib

LIBS        =        -L”c:\Qt\QtCreator\qt\lib” -lmingw32 -lqtmaind -lQtGuid4 -lpsapi -lQtCored4

See you to the next post.. 🙂

    merci pour l’idée!
    En cherchant un peu plus, j’ai remarqué que en éditant en éditant le fichier .pro

    LIBS += -lpsapi

    les makefiles seront alors automatiquement généré

    oups sorry! this blog is in English…, So:
    Thanks for the idea,
    I find another way to to this by adding
    LIBS += lpsapi
    in .pro file
    new makefile will be automatically generated.
