If my memory serves me right then it's a little magic :)

You select the qqc in the installer and it will show - as version- the latest Qt version that a build is available for (like even a 5.9 snapshot). Behind the scenes however it would install binaries of the compiler for all Qt versions that you have selected, into the respective installation directories.

The compiler is strictly tied to the Qt version, so a binary from 5.9 cannot be used with 5.7. However the installer should have placed a 5.7 compatible version into your Qt 5.7 directory if you have selected 5.8 and qqc.

Note that at this point the binaries are target independent, so you can use the qqc binary for a Qt 5.7 Linux desktop build also for an arm Linux build for example. As long as the host binary runs :)

Qt 5.9.1 is released on June and 5.9.2 is targeted to be released on August so if there is still bad issues open in 5.9.1 there is time to fix those for soon coming Qt 5.9.2 (or even Qt 5.9.3 which should be out ~September...)
