Hi,

thanks a lot for your input! Actually project files are not hardcoded to use the “QtCreatorVP”, but they are referencing the shipped Qt 4.8.1 toolchain. So the most elegant solution for using another Qt Creator is imho to open your Qt Creator’s preferences and add the V-Play Qt toolchain under “Build & Run” -> “Qt Versions” -> “Add…” which is located in V-PlaySDKInstallDir/Desktop/4.8.1/gcc/bin/qmake (Linux and Mac OS X).

If you then change your active project’s Qt version settings (left tab “Projects”) to the V-Play toolchain you should be able to use oru project files without modifying them. :)

Btw, we are shipping an updated version of our installer in the next couple of days, which removes the forced installation of QtCreatorVP and we will then also evaluate the possibility to reuse an existing installation. :)
