For example I use QtCreator to build Qt application and on application start up QtCreator set up system “path” variable and adds path to QtSDK, i.e. “c:\Qt”. That way when I press “run” in IDE application finds all dependences (dll) and runs fine. Problem starts when I close QtCreator, due to unset path variables, I can’t no longer run my application (at least not when path variables don’t point to the QtSDK directory with libraries).

qt static , mingwm10.dll and deployment under windows environment

After spending countless hours creating functions, algorithms and design, You application finally is done. And what now? At this point important decision must be made. Do I deploy it using Qt dynamic or static library? Under Window environment it’s unusual to redistribute application with “many dll’s” (at least with many Qt libs). In that case linking it dynamically is pointless. Another choice is to build, and link it against, Qt statically. In some cases it can be really pain in an … Read the rest of this entry »
