[SOLVED] Missing Qt5Core.dll when running fresh QtCreator compile.

  • Hello everyone,
    I downloaded the qt package (Qt 5.3.2 for Windows 32-bit (MinGW 4.8.2, OpenGL, 737 MB)) and realized that QtCreator that was packaged with this bundle was compiled with Visual Studio instead of MinGW. (I need qt creator to be compiled with minGW so I can use custom plugins)

    I then downloaded the source code for QtCreator (qt-creator-opensource-src-3.2.1)
    and compiled with MinGW 4.8.2 shell.

    After I compiled QtCreator using MinGW, I tried to run qtcreator.exe and I get an error saying
    "The program can't start because Qt5Core.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

    Did I somehow compile qtcreator incorrectly or is something wrong with the source code I downloaded?

    Thank you for any info.
