[SOLVED].exe from "Release" directory don't work correctly



  • Hello.

    I am trying to save frames from a webcam to an .avi file using OpenCv (I have integrated OpenCv with Qt Creator 2.4.1). When i open the project and i run it from Qt Creator, the .avi file is created and i can open the .avi file with a video player (like vlc).

    But when i am running the .exe from Release directory, the .avi file is created, but the file is empty (it shows 0kB).

    Make sure your environment is set up properly on the command line. Creator uses the system environment by default, but it changes a few things (mostly related to finding libraries, etc.) to make the the project work based on your settings.

    Check the environment Creator uses to run your application in Project->...->Run Settings->Environment (don't remember the exact path and am just rebuilding Qt/Qt Creator, so I can't look right now, sorry).



  • Just copied the .dll libraries (all of them) from OpenCv to Release directory. Now i should find exactly what libraries are needed for the application to work.
