Qt World Summit: Submit your Presentation

Windeployqt cannot find visual studio (Qt5.10 / vs2017 / Win 10)

  • Using Qt 5.10.0 with vs2017 on Windows 10, I get the following warning when I run windeployqt.

    Warning: Cannot find Visual Studio release redistributable files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Enterprise\VC\redist\MSVC\14.12.25810.

    However, this is where the redist is stored, as show in the attached picture.


    What is it looking for and not finding?

    Note:- If I run windeployqt on the debug build of my code, it doesn't complain, it is just on the release version which is complains about not finding vs redistribution files.

    seems to be related to this

  • That seems to suggest that it is fixed, but that isn't what I am experiencing. I don't know how I go about raising this as it is a closed thread.
