MSVC2017 code build, windeployqt Access denied, binarycreator produces Installation, dll not found

Hello Qt Experts!
I am building code using MSVC2017
following suggested documentation,
FIRST TIME on Win10 development machine, PATH set to find, windeployqt,- I find windeployqt I managed to produce library for INstallation generation
I found QtIFW-4.1.0\bin\binarycreator.exe on Github, (could not download from QT?? it hangs)
This produced installation package-
This package did not produce code that could be run on new NON Qt installed machine dll not found. on insepction of dll we find Qt5cored.dll -(d setting) ok need release version of dll
On Development Machine -My second attempt in using windeployqt trying to set --release flags;
on dir w* - I find windeployqt has zero Memory size?? What happened?
and - Access denied! NO installation package created. I naturally cannot proceed to Installation package generation using qtbinary creator.
I am unsure what the manifest settings, sidebyside, are- I use MSVC2017 for all code development
This has me stuck here for a week?
Has anyone found a route out of this dilemma
I need to demonstrate installable package
It should not be so mysterious?
I would be grateful if anyone can show me a work around.
