[Solved]Very large .dll to distribute my program



  • I want to distribute the .so or .dll files. Is it normal that Qt5Guid.dll, Qt5Cored.dll and Qt5Widgetsd.dll together are 300MB. Is there a way to reduce it in order to provide a "light" software to the user?



  • Qt5Guid.dll, Qt5Cored.dll are Debug DLL's, so you normally don't distribute those!

    For distribution you should make a Release version that uses Qt5Gui.dll, Qt5Core.dll and so on...

    Release DLL's should be quite a bit smaller than Debug versions...
