    Qt Creator 2.0 Run Settings: wrong executable

    Qt Creator 2.0 is coming up with the wrong executable in a QMake project with subdirs. The top-level project file (neurolab_all.pro):

    TEMPLATE = subdirs
    SUBDIRS = griditems neurolab neurogui neurolib automata thirdparty

    All the sub-projects are library projects except for neurolab, whose project file is:

    QT += gui

    TARGET = neurolab
    TEMPLATE = app

    SOURCES += main.cpp

    release { BUILDDIR=release }
    debug { BUILDDIR=debug }



    In the Run Settings for the project, Qt Creator tries to have


    for the executable, instead of the correct


    Due to the utterly brain-dead decision for Qt Creator to put absolute path names in the .pro.user files, I cannot put the .user files in source control. I want a system that works upon checking out the code without a lot of fiddling.

    Qt itself is a great product, which I have been using with great success for over 10 years. Qt Creator, on the other hand, is getting more annoying and less functional with each release.

    Re: Qt Creator 2.0 Run Settings: wrong executable

    Try with the following pro file:

    QT += gui
    TARGET = neurolab
    TEMPLATE = app
    SOURCES += main.cpp
    Don't try to do more. Qt Creator automatically does shadow builds in 2.0, which is why it probably breaks for you. Leave it to Creators build configurations to do the right thing.

    Also stuff like

    release { BUILDDIR=release }
    debug { BUILDDIR=debug }
    is simply wrong. The proper way is to do this:

    CONFIG( debug, debug|release ) {
        # debug
    } else {
        # release
    But before messing with this, try the basic example first
