Qt Quick - where is the .exe file?

  • After compiling my first QtQuick program, I looked for the executable in the working directory, all the files are there with the exception of an executable. Is there supposed to be a .exe file for Quick applications?

  • The executable can be found in the build-directory, not the directory that contains your source code files.

  • Yes, thank you I found it. However, when trying to start the program I get a message from Win10 saying:

    quicktest.exe - Application Error

    The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000a200). Click OK to close the application.

    If you want to run your application outside Qt Creator, you have to follow the same steps as if you would deploy it on another computer. You can use windeployqt to start on that matter.
