Deployment on windows
What a user can do to deploy a qt app in a Windows QtSDK-less machine? Does he have to install all enormous libraries? I tried to compile statically my qt app but I failed.
Please help me.

The "Deploying an Application on Windows":http://doc.qt.nokia.com/stable/deployment-windows.html page of the docs has the instructions. You must provide all the libs yourself.
Thanks very much, I visited that page but I didn't take it right look

you just have to copy those libraries needed for your application to run inside your application's directory.
but first you'll need to compile your application via VS2008.

mohsen: What's with VS2008? Because willypuzzle didn't said anything about Visual Studio.
You need to compile the application with the same compiler you used to compile the framework
willypuzzle: the runtime for Qt isn't that enormous, usually you don't need the whole framework for your application just copy the modules you used, like for example: QtCore4.dll and QtGui4.dll (they have ~12MB) and the runtime for your C++ compiler (the proper vcredist in case of VS, or mingwm10.dll and libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll in case of MingW)
Yes I saw, I compiled all with QtCreator. I didn't have problem with libraries but with plugins. Now I solved.
