    Starting C:\Users\emb-raghshu\build-TestProject-Desktop-Debug\debug\TestProject.exe...
    file:///C:/Users/emb-raghshu/build-TestProject-Desktop-Debug/app.qml: File not found
    C:\Users\emb-raghshu\build-TestProject-Desktop-Debug\debug\TestProject.exe exited with code 0"

    I know that qml file is not found by exe i put app.qml in debug folder and ran exe from there the QML peice of code was running fine but again if i try running from QT creator again the same error as above i recieve.

    You can put the QML into a resource file (QRC), so that it is always being bundled together with the .exe. Or use a path that is relative (something like "../app.qml" should work in your case).

  • The C:/Users/emb-raghshu/build-TestProject-Desktop-Debug is your working directory.

    Your app is looking for the qml file in the working directory. But if you start the program the qml file ist still in your source directory.

    So place the qml file in the working directory or change the working directory in the project settings so that it points to the source directory.
