Create installer with Visual Studio 2017



  • Hi,
    recently I made an app using visual studio with the qt framework, however I'm having trouble properly creating a setup file for it. I made an installer using VS and I have no problem installing the app on my own PC. The problem is when I try to install it on other computers. It shows that no Qt plugin was found. I tried fixing this by adding the "plugins" folder from where I have installed Qt on my machine, however this does no fix the issue. Now the program finds the plugin but cannot initiate it and at this point I have no ideas. Is there a way I can create an installer using VS or do I have to rewrite the entire project(which isn't very small) in Qt Creator.
