    You should check the exact path where the database is copied and check whether you can really access it there.

    Just in case, you pass DatabaseDataStoragePath to setDatabaseName but that's the folder where the database is stored, not the database itself.

    thanks I solved this way
    in project file :
    android {
    data.files = C:/Users/Gotora/Desktop/Acc_Software/Accounts/MyDatabase.db
    data.path = /assets/database
    INSTALLS += data

    in c++ file:

    QFile dfile("assets:/database/MyDatabase.db");
    QString filePath = QStandardPaths::writableLocation( QStandardPaths::StandardLocation::AppLocalDataLocation );
    filePath.append( "/MyDatabase.db");
    if (dfile.exists()) {
    if( QFile::exists( filePath ) )
    QFile::remove( filePath );

          if( dfile.copy( filePath ) )
              QFile::setPermissions( filePath, QFile::WriteOwner | QFile::ReadOwner );
      db.setDatabaseName( filePath );
