    Hi, your running a release version of your program, so did you read the deploy on Windows document? There all information is given to launch a program in release. Or do you try to run a debugger on the release version?
    The debugger uses the -d option on all Qt dll files. Make sure your compiler/debugger/kit are setup properly.

    @Jeroentjehome why do the deployment stuff when running for Qt Creator ?

    @inforathinam Did you do any .pro file modifications before building in release ? In any case, try re-running qmake or do a full rebuild.

  • @SGaist You are totally right! Running a release program is totally possible in QtCreator in the run mode. I wanted to know if the stand alone program could be run when properly deployed.
