# qt 5.15 - getting the debug dlls

• Hi,

I used qt 5.15 online installer to get the latest qt 5.15 opensource.

I only see the release dlls in the bin folder, e.g. Qt5Core.dll
and I am really looking for the debug ones, e.g. Qt5Cored.dll

how do I get those?

I tried to rerun the installer/maintenance tool and select "Qt Debug Information Files" under qt/qt 5.15.0

but I still don't have those

they are now under
c:\Qt\5.15.0\mingw81_64\lib\Qt5Core.dll.debug
??

(as far as I remember they used to be in the bin folder, next to the release ones)

thanks

• I remember having seen posts of similar questions.
And the answer in them is mingw now has no difference in debug and release dlls.
The `Qt5Core.dll.debug` is not a debug version of dll, but the symbol file for debugging.
