    Hello,
    I’m using V-Play for my university project. Currently I’m trying to create my own Windows Phone game. I was working on it like 2 months ago and everything was fine, but now when I’m trying to create new shadow build Qt Creator is not generating .pro file in selected directory. It doesn’t matter which platform I choose. QtCreator shows me something like this:

    Project MESSAGE: Link with V-Play library: VPlay

    Project MESSAGE: Link with V-Play library: VPlayd

    I can test my game on Android or Windows 10 and it’s working correctly.

    How can I link these libs?

    Hi Bartosz!

    These messages are no problem.

    Can you describe in more detail what doesn’t work for Windows Phone?

    Are able to successfully build the project? If not, which error do you see in the Compile Output?

    So following the instruction http://v-play.net/doc/vplay-deployment-wp8/ if I want to deploy my game to Windows Phone device I have to create a visual studio project.

    I have to open shadow build directory in cmd and type command with .pro file to create this project. The problem is there is no .pro file inside selected folder so i can’t create vs project.

    I deleted the shado build folder and after building again there are new warnings:

    Project MESSAGE: Link with V-Play library: VPlay

    Project MESSAGE: Link with V-Play library: VPlayd

    Project MESSAGE: Link with V-Play library: VPlay

    WARNING: winrt_manifest_install.path is not defined: install target not created

    WARNING: winrt_manifest_install.path is not defined: install target not created

     

    I also have just reinstalled visual studio and V-Play and that error is still there.

     

    Thats how I’m trying to do it.

    Are you using the latest V-Play version?
    Qt recently made some improvements to WinPhone deployment, so it is no longer required to manually create a Visual Studio project. It should be possible to directly build, deploy and launch your project on a phone or the emulator from within Qt Creator.

    Can you please try the following steps:

    • Open your project in Qt Creator
    • Disable DEPLOYMENTFOLDERS and use the Qt Resource System as described here: Protect your Source Code with the Qt Resource System (the 5. steps)
    • Delete your previous shadow build directory
    • right-click the project in the file tree and select “Clean” and then right-click again and select “Run qmake”
      (you should get a completely fresh and clean build now)
    • Select your Windows Phone Kit and build the project with the hammer symbol in the bottom left of Qt Creator
      Was the build succesful?
    • If yes, hit the green “Run” button in Qt Creator. Qt Creator should build and launch the project on WinPhone then.

    Does this work for you?

    Best,
    Günther

    Yes I’m using the latest V-Play version.

    The problem is that I need the Visual Studio project now :/ Is there a way to get older V-Play version or somehow downgrade the client??

    Hi Bartosz!

    Converting aQt Project into a VS project should still be possible the same way as before, see here.
    Please try running the conversion tool in your project dir or copy the Qt project to your shadow build dir before converting.

    The tool should then create the VS project as before.

    Best,
