Unsolved Qt Creator 6.0.1 and Qt 6.2.2 running on Windows 7
Hope you're all doing awesome. 🚀 Huge shoutout to you guys who've been working magic with those QT6 DLL patches for Windows 7! You folks are the real MVPs, and you're making a lot of people happy.
I'm not a QT developer, but I wanted to share a thought – a bunch of QT-based apps that used to run like a dream on Windows 7 suddenly hit a brick wall after they upgraded to QT6. These patched DLLs aren't just for Windows 7 devs; they're also a lifeline for end-users who just want to keep using their favorite apps.
I've noticed the list of patched versions is growing, but I'm thinking, why stop there? Windows 7 users are still rocking it, and there's a bunch of QT6 versions that could use some love. Here's what we've got so far:
6.0.0 6.0.1 6.0.2 6.0.3 6.0.4 6.1.0 6.1.1 6.1.2 6.1.3 6.2.0 6.2.1 6.2.2 hskoglund 6.2.3 6.2.4 6.3.0 dmginc 6.3.1 dmginc 6.3.2 6.4.0 dmginc 6.4.1 6.4.2 6.4.3 6.5.0 6.5.1 dmginc 6.5.2 6.5.3 crystalidea 6.6.0 crystalidea
I believe that extending this compatibility to cover the remaining versions of QT6 would be immensely beneficial for the Windows 7 user base. But I get that this isn't a walk in the park, so maybe we can chip away at it bit by bit. No rush, just a gradual, awesome expansion of compatibility. What do you guys think?
Cheers to keeping the Windows 7 flame alive! 🔥

Folks, I've stumbled onto this thread while searching alternatives to my problem and having read through all of the posts I'm really really hoping one of you can help!
Long story short is I built an Arcade machine years back which is based on Win 7 x64. Its been highly modified / customized over the years and upgrading windows would be devastating and requires massive rework. Recently one application I use to run some games changed to use Qt 6.6.1 x64. vs Qt5. I downloaded and tried the 6.6.1 files linked herein but came across another error and I was wondering if some kind soul could add the missing libraries. I've attached 3 pictures, 1) the Qt files found in the game.exe folder, & 2) the error I'm currently receiving. Its worth noting that some files are different from the 6.6.1 download here and the Qt6 files found in the game.exe's directory.
Would any of you be willing to help me out? Many many thanks in advance!!
