Hi Charley,

We have been providing installers and fully supporting Qt Commercial 4.8 for 64-bit Windows 7 for VS2010, and plan to do so also for Qt Commercial 5.0.

Requests for 64-bit VS 2008 have been really limited. Most of the customers use 32-bit and plan to do so for the while being.

VS2012 is in the radar and will definitely be supported for Qt 5. It needs to be decided when and for which configurations.

If you wish to get further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our support through the Qt Commercial Customer Portal.

Show of hands -- those of you on Win7x64, are you using MSVC2008 or MSVC2010?

We're a Qt-Win-Commercial customer, and our internal "reference-compiler" is MSVC2008.  We've had issues with MSVC2010 (mostly that it's so *slow*, and the IDE is not as stable).  We ship based on MSVC2008+SP1.

We are *very* interested in the soon-to-be-released Qt5.

Looking at the Qt5 release-platforms page, I don't see "Win7x64/MSVC2008" listed:


Not a biggie, but this implies we must move from MSVC2008 to MSVC2010 (we want "Tier-1").

I'm not advocating either way, I just want to understand what people are doing -- I thought quite a lot of people stayed on MSVC2008 (and did not go to MSVC2010).

As an aside, we've been watching the MSVC2012 "Release Candidate" that is out, it seems to solve some issues associated with MSVC2010, but drops native-targetting-for-XP (we don't care, but some might).  Any thoughts about levels-of-support for MSVC2012?

Digia -- care to comment?
