[Moved] Suitable build tool which will automatically import all the required dlls/libraries into the release build
Hi, I have started to use Qt just 1 week ago. I am trying to find a suitable build tool which will automatically build my project with all the required dependencies, something similar to Maven in Java, so that I will be able to release my application to users with all the required Qt dll/libraries.
It will be really great if the tool is cross-platform and easy to use/configure.
Thank you for your kind help.
The Microsoft Visual Studio IDE has something called deployment project. Adding the output of a project within this adds all libraries that are linked to the project.
However in VS2005 it seems only to find out about the first level of dlls. So if you have dlls in your project that by itself need dlls that are not needed by the projects main exe you will have to fiddle around. However finally you have an installer that should contain all the dlls and runtimes needed.
Thanks moellney for your reply. Good to know that visual studio has a solution for this.
What about linux and mac? Is there anything like this on those platforms?
