Publish Qt app to Microsoft Store
kibsoft last edited by kibsoft
I was able to build my app with Qt for WinRT and now the goal is to publish it to Microsoft Store. I can't find any article or blog post about experience of publishing Qt apps to Microsoft Store. Has anyone tried it before? I saw the Quick Forecast app published by Digia in the store but now this app is unavailable, who knows why?
Thanks in advance.

I guess the Digia published apps have gone away as The Qt Company was separated from Digia completely this summer.

there are no specific Qt articles as there is no difference between publishing a Qt application or a "regular" application to the Windows Store. Hence a search should give you lots of pointers. Here's a very extensive summary of the steps: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ls6hoMa2Ho
Same applies to WIndows 10. These days there are a couple of more questions in regards to age rating, but I am sure you will be able to cover those.
To get the project to start with, create the Visual Studio project by invoking
qmake -tp vc <path to your project>.pro
Then you have a vcxproj you can use for connecting and creating packages.
