How to debug a Qt Designer plugin

  • Hi
    I have developed some designer plugins that are working nicely.
    Now I have created another but cannot get it to work.
    Within designer I see the following when I do Help->about Plugins -

    Failed Plugins
    Cannot load library C:\Qt\Qt5.3.0\5.3\msvc2012_opengl\plugins\designer\QtDesignerWidgets.dll The specified module could not be found

    Can anyone give me some idea as to how to debug this

    Is the plugin built using the same compiler version and options as the designer itself? Eg. debug/release etc.? Does your plugin depend on external libraries? If so are they in a place the dll can find them?
