Application deployment question

  • Hello,
    I was wondering, how can I deploy a QT application in a more "gentle" way. Now I am shipping the DLLs in the same folder as the .exe plus the platforms folder with its contents. However this is quite quite unelegant approach. Can I do it some way as in Javas JAR files? I know its the way a C++ is deployed, but QT is quite modern, so I suppose I can have lets say:

    1. Executable file ( the program )
    2. A file containig all the DLLs for QT dependancies
    3. A data file - apparently pictures, sounds, etc.
      I guess this can`t be put into a single file, but right now I have about 10 files just for QT, all libraries, needed when I ran DepLinker.
