Article - Using Squish Qt example applications (Qt, Windows)


The Squish for Qt binary packages for Windows ship with several example applications. However, to keep the download size of the package small, the Qt libraries are only provided in the folder <SQUISH_DIR>\bin, which means that the examples cannot be started from Windows Explorer via double click.

The following instructions can be used to use the example applications anyway.

These steps demonstrate how to get the addressbook example (<SQUISH_DIR>\examples\qt\addressbook) up and running:

Step 1 - Download the Qt libraries that match your Squish package (if the right one is not listed, please contact Squish support):

Step 2 - Unpack the downloaded Qt library archive and put the contained files (and the folder plugins, if it exists) ⚠️ into the folder of the addressbook example application.

Step 3 - Run Squish’ setup and either choose Path determined by OS or point to the Qt libraries in the folder of addressbook.exe.
