Qt Creator – Project ERROR: Xcode not set up properly. You may need to confirm the license agreement by running /usr/bin/xcodebuild

>= Xcode 8

In Xcode 8, as Bruce said, this happens when Qt tries to find xcrun when it should be looking for xcodebuild.

Open the file:



isEmpty($$list($$system("/usr/bin/xcrun -find xcrun 2>/dev/null")))


isEmpty($$list($$system("/usr/bin/xcrun -find xcodebuild 2>/dev/null")))

~> Xcode 8

Before Xcode 8, this problem occurs when command line tools are installed after Xcode is installed. What happens is the Xcode-select developer directory gets pointed to /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools.

Point Xcode-select to the correct Xcode Developer directory with the command:

sudo xcode-select -switch /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer

Confirm the license agreement with the command:

sudo xcodebuild -license

This will prompt you to read through the license agreement.

Enter agree to accept the terms.
