MySQL driver not loaded in other computers.
I made a Qt application with mysql successfully.
And then I want test it in other computers.
I zip debug folder with required dlls and send it to my friends.
Application succesfully starts and working.
But, when accessing MySQL it says driver not loaded!
Did I miss something???
The SQL database drivers are implemented as Qt plugins.
All Qt plugins are in the "plugins" folder of your Qt installation. In that folder there is a subfolder called sqldrivers and this folder contains a file looking like "mysql.dll" which is the driver plugin for MySQL.
To solve your issue, you must:
1/ Create a "plugins" folder in your ZIP so that it will be next to your executable
2/ Create a "sqldrivers" folder in that "plugins" folder and copy the "mysql.dll" MySQL driver in that folder
3/ In your main function, call @QCoreApplication::addLibraryPath(QCoreApplication::applicationDirPath())@
This will tell Qt your application to look for plugins in the executable directory. See "this page":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/qcoreapplication.html#libraryPaths for more information on Qt, plugins and library paths.
Create a “sqldrivers” folder in the application's directory, then copy the xxxx.dll plugin to it is enough.
No "plugins" directory is needed. No "addLibraryPath(...)" is needed.
God bless rcari and 1+1=2 !
