Dear developers,
Would you tell me, if qt-opensource-windows-x86-android-5.7.0.exe 
package is compatible with Windows 10 home edition?
I have tried to build some sample applications, but even though I have 
set some environment variables, even though I have set right paths 
inside settings menu, build process only create series of .so files, but 
no .dex files and ANT Apache tomcat is not being executed to create apk 
Gradle did not worked for me.
So is it possible to use this amazing package with 64 bit operating system?

I have also last but not trivial plea to you.
This will not be easy to solve.
QT apps are very complex after build. It is using .so library, where ARM 
compatible machine code is presented. But QT applications are also using 
.dex package, which is bridge. This bridge communicates with .so library 
and this bridge is responsible for GUI creation. And, and it is very 
important for accessibility, it provides usable accessible information 
for screen readers.
Please, try to do yours best, so this Java bridge will be reliable and 
enough fast. When user will swipe with his finger while using QT Android 
apps with active Android screen reader.
I Am aware, that Java code will be always much more slower than C++ 
compiled machine code. But reliability of this specific Java code, which 
is The part of every compiled Android QT app is very important for 
visually impaired users. The responsiveness of process, which screen 
reader is communicating with it is very important.
Unfortunately, many IDES, which are based on C++, compiled C++ code is 
The part of The compiled code are inaccessible with screen readers.
Because some projects are using non standard libraries, which are being 
detected by screen readers as bitmap, because it behaves by this way.
Android NDK apps, which are using native Android activity are 
inaccessible at all.
Apps, which are being created by using Codeworx for Android  from Nvidia 
corporation are also inaccessible.
So for now, only QT apps or apps, which have been created by using 
Mosync IDE are 100 % accessible.
Thank you very much for yours understanding.
