Application Installer Creation



  • Hello, everyone!

    I have the release of my app which I've deployed succesfully using windeployqt tool, and now I want to create an installer for my application which needs to basically extract the components and run the ODBC Connector installer so that my application can connect to the database I'm using. However, I have no idea how can I do this, can someone give me some indications?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi
    You can use Qt own system
    https://doc.qt.io/qtinstallerframework/
    or other like
    http://izpack.org/

    Adding the Qt DLL/so files to the installer should not be the biggest issue,
    However, you need to check if it can run another installer.

    for
    Qt Installer Framework , its something like
    installer.performOperation("Execute", ["path\some.exe"]);
