Building QT 6.2 for Android on Windows

First I built QT 6.2 for Windows then I installed JDK8, CMake 3.21.3 and configured QT as follows:

set "CMAKE_ROOT=E:\PFiles\cmake-3.21.3-windows-x86_64\bin"
set "NINJA_ROOT=E:\PFiles\ninja-win"

Building QT 6.2 for Windows with MSVC2019

I cloned QT repository:

git clone --recursive https://code.qt.io/qt/qt5.git --branch v6.2.0
cd qt5

Looks like the command below is not required:

./init-repository --module-subset=all

because it prints:

Will not reinitialize already initialized repository (use -f to force)!

QtPurchasing uses deprecated AIDL billing library

Looks like QtPurchasing uses deprecated AIDL billing library and people say that it crashes on some devices. See https://developer.android.com/google/play/billing/deprecation-faq for more information. Probably they are going to update it in 5.15.7 and move it into examples in QT 6, so it is not clear exactly what will happen with it, we probably better wait QT 5.15.7 to be released.

On Ubuntu 18 you do an extra step to install CMake version >= 3.12:

wget -O - https://apt.kitware.com/keys/kitware-archive-latest.asc 2>/dev/null | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://apt.kitware.com/ubuntu/ bionic main'
sudo apt update

Built my QT app for Android with API level 30 (Android 11)

New Android App Bundle and target API level requirements in 2021:

Starting August 2021, new apps will be required to target API level 30 (Android 11) and use the Android App Bundle publishing format. Starting November 2021, all app updates will be required to target API level 30 (Android 11). Apps with a download size of more than 150 MB are now supported by Play Asset Delivery and Play Feature Delivery.

I updated the manifest manually as follows:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<manifest package="net.geographx.LinesGame" xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" android:versionName="2.5.30" android:versionCode="161" android:installLocation="auto">
