Problems Compiling QML app in Visual Studio
I am able to run the program fine if I run it out of Visual Studio (except the fonts change), but when I go into the release or debug folder and try to run the .exe file without Visual Studio I get an error:
The program can’t start because QtDeclarative4.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
You must copy QtDeclarative4.dll (and at least QtCore4.dll and QtGui4.dll and probably some others) to the release folder.
You can use depends.exe downloadable from http://www.dependencywalker.com/ to find out which DLLs are needed by your application and by the DLLs that it needs.
Perhaps we need a wiki about libraries being in PATH or including them with the app in a redistributable form.
As for the fonts: Qt tries to use system font by default (to give native look among other things). This includes font face, size and (quite importantly) anti-aliasing.
If you want to override the system font, you should pick the font you want to use manually in your application. If you’ve already done this, you might be referring to anti-aliasing then?
