How to build mysql plugin with static Qt?
I have libraries bulit both static and shared. In shared library I built mysql plugin and it works good. In static library I did the same actions to build plugin and plugin was bulit, but when I want to use it QSqlDatabase::lastError shows "Driver not loaded" and if I use it by #include <QtPlugin>, Q_IMPORT_PLUGIN (qsqlmysql) there is error: main.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "class QObject * __cdecl qt_plugin_instance_qsqlmysql(void)" (?qt_plugin_instance_qsqlmysql@@YAPAVQObject@@XZ) referenced in function "public: __thiscall StaticqsqlmysqlPluginInstance::StaticqsqlmysqlPluginInstance(void)" (??0StaticqsqlmysqlPluginInstance@@QAE@XZ). Anybody can helps me?

I solved the problem by coping libmysql.lib to qt\lib and adding to linker input.

Why did you add an additional directory to "Additional Library Directories" under "Linker" of your project properties?
This is as you have to do in msvc 2005. I guess the naming did not much for msvc 2010.
You must import the plugin with
