[solved] winsparkle + qt application
I have built a qt app for windows which i would like to get auto updates. For which I am planing to use winsparkle. I have successfully built the winsparkle library in qt creator. But when i run the application it gives me following error :
WinSparkle: Executable doesn't have the required VERSIONINFO resource: The specified resource type cannot be found in the image file.
If any one knows how to solve this error please help me or point me to a good tutorial on winsparkle. My basic aim is to get the auto update feature for my app on windows.
Seems my answer disappeared...
You need to add a windows rc file
yea gaist the file is there in the same folder as the executable. Do I need to add it in particular place or in some particular method. Please elaborate.
Did you add
@RC_FILE = your_rc_file_name.rc@
To your pro file ?
oh you are awesome man. Thanks.
You're welcome !
