Release standalone application - static
Hey, I installed static Qt 5.3.1, but now I don't know how to use it... I added in .pro file config += static and then in designer ran release, but it still asking me for .dll files...
Also if I am informed right, statically build Qt should have only .exe file... I can not find that file anywhere... I have only Qt 5.3.1 which was installed with Qt installer before I did static build...
I need instructions how to make my application standalone, without asking me for .dll files... I am using MSVC as compiler...
I found these instructiosn but I don't really understand them... I added CONFIG += static and ran qmake in QtCreator and no idea where and how to make nmake, cd release...
Build a static application
Modify the .pro file of the project by adding an option for static linking.
CONFIG += static
Using Microsoft Tools
To build the Qt project as a standalone executable file run qmake and nmake. After that you should execute mt.exe to embed a manifest inside the application to avoid error such as missing MSVCP90.dll when the application is started on other computers.
mt.exe -manifest Hello.exe.manifest -outputresource: Hello.exe;1
Maybe I did something wrong at building static as well... Here are my steps...
- Download Qt source, Install Qt with installer
- Extract source to C:\Qt\Static
- Open visual studio cmd
- Cd to extracted source (C:\Qt\Static\Qt5.3.1)
- configure.bat -static -opensource -no-opengl -no-angle -audio-backend -nomake tests -nomake examples
- Run jom
- Install Visual Studio Add in for Qt5
