I’ve done a lot of development on OF on a Mac and have not run into any problems. Today, I was trying to setup OF on a windows machine with QtCreator to compile my OF app but it won’t even start to compile the examples.
I followed the instructions on http://openframeworks.cc/0.9.0/setup/qtcreator/.
I have msys2 installed and updated. I added the gcc compiler from msys2 to QtCreator, created a new kit to use the msys2 compiler, then updated the project to use the new kit. But when I try to compile an example project, it fails with “This makefile does not support your operating system.” Looking at config.shared.mk, I see that it’s failing to check my platformOS. I checked uname -s in msys2 and it shows MINGW64_NT, and I see that it is in the makefile. So what am I missing? Why is the correct platformOS not being passed for compiling in QtCreator?
