Where to put the "platform" plugin folder?

Hi, I have the same problem on an app that I'm deployed. In my case the installer extract all plugins under <ApplicationDirPath>/plugins (the right way I think) but for some reasons the app is not able to find qwindows.dll inside <ApplicationDirPath>/plugins/platform/qwindows.dll and the error of the topic appears.
The problem is solved if I copy the folder platform on <ApplicationDirPath>, in this manner all work ok. This is not clear for me: The platform folder should stay inside <ApplicationDirPath> or <ApplicationDirPath>/plugins ?
I was tested this behaviour on Windows7/8.1/10 with Qt5.7.1
This is not clear for me: The platform folder should stay inside <ApplicationDirPath> or <ApplicationDirPath>/plugins ?
The correct path is <ApplicationDirPath>/platform/qwindows.dll.
