Pro Compiled From Source

Post by cjh » Tue Aug 16, 2016 9:20 pm

I finally got Qt 5.5.1 + Webkit + QCAD to compile from source on Windows 7 x64.
That took me longer than I'm willing to admit!
If anyone's curious as to my steps I'll outline them here.

Is it possible to regain the file format functionality of QCAD Pro?
Copying qcadproscripts.dll/qcaddwg.dll to the plugins folder does not allow you to save as formats other than dxf 2000.

This should work if the plugins are not incompatible with your Qt version. You can check the command line output or Help > About > Plugins for errors.

Awesome - I had compiled QCAD 3.15.4.2 and my pro libraries are from 3.15.4.0.

Compiling QCAD 3.15.4.0 and copying the pro libraries over was successful.

Thanks Andrew!
