I have already asked this in the qt developer forum and have been asked to go here with my problem. So here we go:

I was a happy user of the remote compiler. But now it’s gone forever:


I was hoping that it’s just a matter of installing the qt sdk on windows to be able to continue. It turns out it’s not that easy.

My application consists of a main executable and several plugins (shared libs/dlls). So far all the DEPLOYMENT magic was inside the src.pro of my main executable. This just collected the dlls from the other branches inside my development tree. This worked fine in the remote compiler setup.

In the local windows qt sdk setup this doesn’t work anymore. The build fails since the toplevel makefile doesn’t contain any sis_installer (or similar) target. Of course there isn’t as the toplevel pro file doesn’t contain any deployment related parts. But adding these doesn’t help since this toplevel makefile then expects to find similar targets in all targets underneath.

So how do i create one single installer sis in a projects consisting of various pro files adding various dlls to the setup?
