Cutting down app size

  • I have compiled my app and included the required dlls in the app folder. Without the Qt dlls the app wont function and they make the folder heavy by over 200mb. Is there any way i can cut down the size...something like an obfuscator like Proguard in java to shed off unused funtions in the libraries?

  • 200 MiB of shared libs? What libraries do you include? Are they compiled in debug mode? On GNU/Linux systems you could just use
    @strip [yourobject]@
    to probably make it a good deal smaller. I don't know if something like this exists for windows (try mingw/cygwin).

  • 200 Mb seems like a lot. You probably are using debug mode ? Any way you can try upx ro reduce your files size.
