[Solved] Cannot run qt application even copying plugins folder into the executable folder?



  • Seems there was no available platforms, but I don't know why
    since I've copied all the dlls over already.
    I ran dependx64.exe, even there were no problems at all.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Failed to Load platform plugin "windows". Available platforms are:

  • Moderators

    You shouldn't copy the whole plugins folder. It won't work. Copy only the relevant files from the subfolders. Please refer to the "deployment guide":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/windows-deployment.html to put everything in the right place.

    In your case this message means you've misplaced or didn't copy over the platform plugin.
    Copy <Qt dir>\plugins\platforms\qwindows.dll to
    <your app dir>\platforms\qwindows.dll
    Notice no extra "plugins" folder in the target directory.



  • Oh yes, thanks, it works now
