Qt application is requesting for admin privileges without any reason
I've just started development of a Console application in Qt and, when I start it from within QtCreator it fails with the following message: "Failed to start program. Path or permissions wrong?".
After I while, I discovered that if I "Run as administrator" QtCreator everything works.
Why? My application simply processes a local XML file and prints its content on the screen. I don't need and I don't want it to request for admin privileges.
The .pro file contains the following lines:
QT += core xml network
QT -= gui
TEMPLATE = app
And of course, SOURCES, LIBS and the rest.
Hi, if you start your Console application from a CMD window, does it still fail with the ".. permissions wrong" message?
Note: to be able to start your Qt program from a CMD window, you probably need to first invoke qtenv2.bat (in the bin directory) so that the Qt DLLs can be found.
Windows asks me to allow the program to make changes to this computer via the canonical message box (background greyed and so on). Why? I don't have set any special in my application.
Hmmm, I see you include network, could it be you're opening a TCP port below 1024?
