Solved The application was unable to start correctly 0xc000007b
I am developing an application using Qt5.8 and Qwt6.1.3 with Visual Studio on a Windows 10 platform.
I used windeployqt to generate an exe file from my solution, which always worked without any problems in the past. However, this time it failed and I got the error message in the title when I tried to run the program by double-clicking on the generated exe file. I think the problem is caused by the presence of Qwt. Because in the earlier versions of my program I did not use Qwt and everything ran smooth. I tried copying the qwt.dll to fix the problem, but it did not make a difference.
How can I fix this problem? Thanks in advance.
By the way, some more information:
In the project properties on Visual Studio, I added
"$(QTDIR)\Qwt-6.1.3\include" under Additional Include Directories,
"$(QTDIR)\Qwt-6.1.3\lib" under Additional Library Directories,
"qwt.lib" under Additional Dependencies and QWT_DLL under Preprocessor definitions.
To generate the exe file, I (as always) followed the instructions on https://github.com/daviddrell/visualsc/wiki/How-to-Deploy-a-Qt-5-Application-for-Windows
In step 4 of the instructions I copies qwt.dll under the application directory, because it was missing. but it didnt help solve the problem.

You should use Dependency Walker to check whether you have missing dependencies for your application (e.g. some Qwt stuff).
I followed your advice and it worked. Apparently the Qt5PrintSupport.dll and Qt5OpenGL.dll files were missing. I copied them to the application directory and it worked.
Thank you very much.

Perhaps some dll files are missing.
