What does "can't parse" mean? What is the output?
Are you sure you have a valid Kit attached to your project?

There is nothing OS-specific about this.

The qbs profiles are derived from Creator's Kits. If the profile does 
not have a toolchain, then the Kit usually has no compiler set. Or 
perhaps it was misdetected in some way; hard to say without concrete 
data. You'd have to show us at least your Kit and the qbs profile that 
Creator made from it.
