windeployqt debug issue with VS2019 /ZI Edit and continu enabled
Satirik last edited by Satirik
If I compile my project in debug with Edit and continu enabled (/ZI) with VS 2019, the windeployqt.exe will either copy the release plugin binaries (with an error when loading qml because of incompatibility between release and debug) or, if --debug is specified, it will append a "d" to the dll names and fail to copy Qt5Coredd.dll, Qt5Guidd.dll etc because they don't exist.
It only happens when the /ZI option is enabled.
Edit: Using Qt 5.15.2, didn't try with Qt 6
Deploying debug libs is not suported (and deploying the msvc debug runtimes is not allowed by MS). Only deploy release binaries.

"deploying" (aka file copy) debug qt libs is supported as it is a parameter of the tool, and why are you talking about MS debug runtime exactly ? I am talking about Qt binaries copied from the qt bin dir to my project bin dir ...
