I am currently trying to build the QGroundControl project from source on Windows, but I am encountering a linker error during the build process. I am using Qt 5.15.2 with MSVC 2019 64-bit. The specific error I’m facing is as follows:
qrc_src_FirmwarePlugin_APM_APMResources_qmlcache.cpp link /NOLOGO /DYNAMICBASE /NXCOMPAT /DEBUG /OPT:REF /INCREMENTAL:NO /OPT:ICF /LTCG /SUBSYSTEM:WINDOWS "/MANIFESTDEPENDENCY:type='win32' name='Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls' version='22.214.171.124' publicKeyToken='6595b64144ccf1df' language='*' processorArchitecture='*'" /VERSION:0.0 /MANIFEST:embed /OUT:staging\QGroundControl.exe @C:\Users\SMARTS~1\AppData\Local\Temp\QGroundControl.exe.3880.86422.jom LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'QGCMapTileSet.obj' jom: C:\Users\SMART SKIMMER\Documents\qgTests\build-qgroundcontrol-Desktop_Qt_5_15_2_MSVC2019_64bit-Release\Makefile [staging\QGroundControl.exe] Error 1181 20:21:07: The process "C:\Qt\Tools\QtCreator\bin\jom\jom.exe" exited with code 2. Error while building/deploying project qgroundcontrol (kit: Desktop Qt 5.15.2 MSVC2019 64bit) When executing step "Make" 20:21:07: Elapsed time: 01:27.
I have tried cleaning and rebuilding the project, verifying the source file, checking the build configuration, and ensuring all dependencies are installed, but the error persists.
Could anyone provide insights or suggestions on how to resolve this issue? Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
