# Building with qibuild and QtCreator ¶

The only thing to remember is that you should not let QtCreator call CMake by itself the first time.

Use  qibuild configure  then  qibuild make  to be sure everything works fine.

Then open the root  CMakeLists.txt  in QtCreator.

You will be prompted to use a build directory:

Warning

Do not use the default one proposed by QtCreator, choose the one that was created by qiBuild

QtCreator will read the settings from the existing build directory, so everything should work fine.

Remember to use the same CMake generator in QtCreator and in your configuration file, if QtCreator asks you to choose one.

Note: If QtCreator does not ask you for a build directory, one way to force it do to so is to delete the  CMakeLists.txt.user  file.
