installed in their default locations. On Linux/Mac this is ~/Qt5.x.1 and on Windows this is C:\Qt\Qt5.x.1. The default toolchains are gcc on Linux,
clang on Mac and MSVC2010 (Qt <= 5.5) or MSVC2013 (Qt > 5.5) on Windows. It's easiest to use default installations of the official opensource Qt packages.
On macOS it might be necessary to tweak some files of the Qt installation - depending on the installed Xcode and its installed SDKs.
If Xcode 8+ is installed you will need to update the file
Change the line

Search for the following line
!host_build:QMAKE_MAC_SDK = macosx10.8
Newer Xcode might miss the 10.8 SDK. Check
which SDKs are installed and update the version number accordingly.
Fourth - you'll have to provide some additional repositories (and for the hooking into subprocesses even some more Squish bundles, see below).
These additional repositories are located inside ~/squish-data or C:\Users\<user>\squish-data (depending on the OS you're on).
You can also just provide them inside a different folder and specify the folder with the environment variable SYSTEST_SRCPATH.

Sixth - Qt Creator should be built with ClangCodeModel plugin. How to do so, see QTCREATOR_REPO/src/plugins/clangcodemodel/README. Without the
plugin, the tests for ClangCodeModel will be skipped but will not cause failures.
On macOS make sure you are using the correct keyboard layout to avoid problems when using keyboard interaction. Tested and known to be
working would be 'U.S. International - PC', while pure 'U.S.' had problems.
Use the settings in System Preferences > Keyboard > Input Sources to install missing keyboard layouts and ensure you have set it as default.
Attention! If any of these prerequisites cannot be satisfied the tests will likely fail (or not run at all).
