Deploying Qt application

  • Hi, I have 'finished' my qt application and now i want to deploy it but have problemes..

    In Debug mode I can compile and run (from Qt Creator) my app without errors. But if i try to run it with myApp.exe (after adding Qt dlls) I have an error saying :

    entry point procedure _ZdaPvj could not be found in libstdc++-6.dll

    then I add libstdc++-6.dll and try to restart app, and now i have no errors when i double click on myApp.exe, it just don't start.

    Other probleme is, when i switch to Release mode,it looks like my app Compiles witout errors but crashes if i try to run (even from Qt creator).

    Im using Qt 5.8.0 MinGW 32bit
    Im including/using open62541.h/.cpp (free OPC UA implementation

    Thx in advance for help

    @LeLev You should take a look at
    If your app crashes in release mode when starting from QtCreator then you most probably have an issue in your code. You should take a look at the stack trace when it crashes.

  • Hi ! Are you using any other libraries than Qt's ?

    I had this problem not that far ago and i wonder if it was not due to the fact i used the wrong library file.
    Like using the release for the debug one or something like that...

    It may be something completely different but check that too

  • @jsulm,
    When my app crashs in release mode i have nothing interesting in stack trace :

    11:26:24: Start : "C:\Qt\Tools\mingw530_32\bin\mingw32-make.exe"
    C:/Qt/Tools/mingw530_32/bin/mingw32-make -f Makefile.Release
    mingw32-make[1]: Entering directory 'C:/Users/user/Documents/build-16K-Desktop_Qt_5_8_0_MinGW_32bit-Release'
    mingw32-make[1]: Nothing to be done for 'first'.
    mingw32-make[1]: Leaving directory 'C:/Users/user/Documents/build-16K-Desktop_Qt_5_8_0_MinGW_32bit-Release'
    11:26:25: Le processus "C:\Qt\Tools\mingw530_32\bin\mingw32-make.exe" ended normaly.
    11:26:25: Time : 00:01.

    @Sillimon, i'm only using open62541.h/.cpp (free OPC UA implementation protocole
    i added unix|win32 : LIBS += -lWS2_32 in my .pro file because open62541 needs ws2_32.dll

    Thx to you two

  • So it only works in Debug from QtCreator...
    Could it be a variable or pointer problem ? That could make the difference between debug and release ?
    Verify initialization of those, maybe ?

  • @LeLev
    theres can be a ton of different reasons, why the release build crashes but the debug one not

    here's a good List to check


    The number one reason for me, so far, was always Variable initialization hence my ever growing habit of initializing EVERYTHING ;-)

  • Thx very much guys! i finally changed Qt version, from 5.8 to 5.10 now its working fine!
