Qt World Summit: Submit your Presentation

Publish Qt app to Microsoft Store

  • Hello.
    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.

  • Hi @kibsoft
    At least @mkalinow has done this before.

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

  • Thanks, will try to ping him.

    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.
