Problems Compiling QML app in Visual Studio
Dennis, I followed your advice and it worked. Everything is in the same folder and it runs. Now how can I send the .exe off to management and get it to run on their machines.
Unfortunately, this might not work on non-development machines. It could be that the C/C++ runtimes for your particular version of Visual Studio must be installed on the client’s computer. If you have to install it depends, if it was previously installed by some other software or not. Anyways, it does not harm, if you run that vcredist_x86.exe again, it does not install the libs twice.
How do I embed it in a .qrc, what will that do for me?
A .qrc file is a Qt resource. It’s a means of embedding various kinds of resources (images/icons, sounds, your qml, etc.) into your application exe. In that way you need not ship all that little files on their own.
Have a look at http://doc.qt.nokia.com/latest/resources.html for an introduction on how to use it. As far as I know the visual studio add in support resources.
How can I package everything up into an installer. What is the easiest way to do this?
There is an overview page on Building Qt Installers [developer.qt.nokia.com] in the wiki. Good starting point.
I personally use InnoSetup for Windows.
