[Solved] Deploy windows application
I tried to create a setup by the Qt installer framework (I followed the following instructions: http://doc-snapshot.qt-project.org/qtifw-1.3/ifw-tutorial.html ). After the successfull building, I copied my setup.exe onto another machine without Qt installation. I deployed the application, but I got the following message in a dialog window:
"This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "windows"
Reinstalling the application may fix this problem"
What I did wrong?
Go to your specific Qt version folder and look for the Plugins folder (i.e. C:\Qt\5.2.0\msvc2010_opengl\plugins).
You will find a Platforms folder there. Copy it to the same folder as your deployed executable. That should work.
If you still get errors after following frankiefrank's instructions, see http://qt-project.org/wiki/Deploy_an_Application_on_Windows
