Can't build a release version for a custom QGC, jom Error 1 & 2

Hello,
Me and my projectteam are buidling a custom QGC interface, but when we try to build a release version the build failes with a few errors. I have looked at the kits and the compilers but they are the same versions. So i dont know how to solve this, so maybe some of you can help me.

Kind regards,
Derk -Jan

Hi @DerkieH, welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

A few questions:

  1. Did you follow the build instructions exactly?
  2. Is this with or without modifications? If without, which commit are you on?
  3. Generally the default build type is Debug. I wouldn’t expect there to be a difference in build success, but just in case, does it work to build Debug instead of Release?

I just made a fresh clone and built it successfully by following the clone and build steps in the build instructions.
