WinDeployQt.exe doesn't deploy webview qml folder?
Hi. I'm trying to compile a UWP app using Qt 5.8, and it seems that after running
windeployqt.exeon it, all the modules are installed correctly, except for the contents of
qml/QtWebView. This leads to the compilation failing due the the
QtWebView/qmldirfile not being found. Looking at the sources of
windeployqt.exeat http://code.qt.io/cgit/qt/qttools.git/tree/src/windeployqt/main.cpp?h=5.8#n159, I see that for example the
webchannelmodule is there, but not the
webviewmodule. This matches what I'm seeing when running
windeployqt, because the
QtWebChannelfolder is copied to the output folder, but the
QtWebViewfolder isn't. For what it is worth, Qt 5.9 seems to have the same issue.
Hi @Besidge, thanks for reporting this issue.
Could you please repost this on the bug tracker? https://bugreports.qt.io/ Otherwise, this report will likely get lost and buried.
Could someone give a workaround?
What files do I need to copy to the deployment directory to get import QtWebView 1.1 working on Windows MSVC2015_64? I guess I am going to have a similar problem on the Mac build?
Thanks a lot.
Ok! I have got it working now. I needed to copy two folders, maybe deleting debug stuff.
I had a similar problem with QtLocation and QtPositioning.
