QT_QPA_PLATFORM_PLUGIN_PATH could not find the platform plugin

  • Hello all,
    in the past we could track down DLL loading issues on windows with depends.exe and process explorer. Due to the intro of QT_QPA_PLATFORM_PLUGIN_PATH and the lame error message, we have to study now the source code to find the reason for the app load issues.
    (How can such a "feature" pass the beta phase?)

    Please improve at least the error message.

    Best regards

    That error generally means that you don't have the platforms folder (containing the platform plugins) deployed alongside your application.
