I have an application built with Qt 5.5, deployed and running on x86 Windows 7 with dynamic linking. When I try to launch it on that particular computer, I get the following error:
This application failed to start because it could not find or load the
Qt platform plugin "windows".
Available platform plugins are: minimal, offscreen, windows, windows.
Reinstalling the application may fix the problem.
The "windows" plugin is indeed repeated twice in the list.
Though I have the libraries set up properly, such that they run without an issue on my main computer, here, the
directory doesn't seem to be found.
Many similar questions can be found about this error, but I have tried all the answers I have found about it (including changing file and folder names, adding various extra Qt libraries to the directory, etc.) without success. I have built the application again while making sure that all components have the right architecture, again without success.
Other than static linking, how can I make it run?
