Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Qt-related error during build prep
From: Paul Offord <[email protected]>

I have upgraded from VS2013 to VS2015 and Qt 5.6 to Qt 5.9.  I have a problem running the cmake preparation command.  I’m running all commands from VS2015 x64 Native Tools Command Prompt.



I setup the environment with:


set CYGWIN=nodosfilewarning

set WIRESHARK_BASE_DIR=C:\Development


set QT5_BASE_DIR=QT5_BASE_DIR=C:\Qt\5.9.3\msvc2015_64




I then change directory into wsbuild64 and run:


cmake -DENABLE_CHM_GUIDES=on -G "Visual Studio 14 2015 Win64" ..\wireshark


The cmake run terminates as follows:


CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:1048 (find_package):

  By not providing "FindQt5Core.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project has

  asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by "Qt5Core", but

  CMake did not find one.


  Could not find a package configuration file provided by "Qt5Core" with any

  of the following names:





  Add the installation prefix of "Qt5Core" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set

  "Qt5Core_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files.  If

  "Qt5Core" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has

  been installed.



-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

See also "C:/Development/wsbuild64/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".

See also "C:/Development/wsbuild64/CMakeFiles/CMakeError.log".


If I do a set Qt5Core_DIR, sure enough I get past this step but it fails on the find of the next Qt package.


What am I doing wrong?


Thanks and regards…Paul
