[SOLVED]Windows Deployment: Need SDK plugins present



  • Hello,

    I'm trying to make a deployable directory that contains the app, plus all the dll's and plugins needed.

    I seem to have it but have a weird problem. The plugins directory in the QtSDK must be present, even if it is empty, or a crash will result on startup in QtGui4.dll.

    This happens in release mode only, debug mode works. I set the plugins path with setLibraryPaths as the first thing I do in main to point to the plugins directory in the app directory.

    Does this ring a bell with anyone?



  • Sounds like a bug to me. The plugins directory should not be absolutely needed. What version of Qt is this with?



  • Ok, I've tried this on 4.7.4 and 4.8 and have the same result.

    My directory structure is:

    app directory
    app directory/plugins
    app directory/plugins/designer
    app directory/plugins/imageformats

    I've also tried moving the entire plugins tree (including plugins) to the app directory.

    Try this:

    app directory
    app directory/designer
    app directory/imageformats



  • I did try that as well Andre with no success.

    But, I've worked around the problem by providing a qt.conf file with:

    [Paths]
    Plugins = plugins
