Cannot change target folder of Examples



  • Usually when deploying to a remote device, I set the target.path to the desired remote directory, example:

    target.path = /home/user/opcua/opcuaviewer
    INSTALLS += target
    

    But if I do so with the, say, opcuaviewer examples, qmake fails with:

    :-1: error: Project ERROR: /home/mark/Qt/qtopcua/examples/opcua/opcuaviewer/opcuaviewer.pro installs target to unexpected location.

    The only way is to left the variable unchanged:

    target.path = $$[QT_INSTALL_EXAMPLES]/opcua/opcuaviewer
    

    But this makes no sense, because the expected folder structure on the remote device is different than the local one!
    What am I missing here?
