PowerShell script to deploy Qt Standalone Windows App

qt-logoUse this script with QtCreator (Option, External Tools):

Executable: powershell

Arguments: deployWindowsApp.ps1 %{CurrentProject:Name} %{CurrentProject:NativePath} %{CurrentProject:BuildPath} %{CurrentProject:QT_INSTALL_BINS} c:\Developer\Deploy

 

MingW compiler path is hardcoded (need by winDeployQt)
I used 7-zip command line tool to create the final Zip archive.

 

My Directory tree:

[code]
Developer
+—Build
+—MyApp-Built-with-Qt-MingW
+—release
+—debug
+—Code
+—MyApp
+—Deploy (some deployable stuff)
+—Deploy
+—MyApp-Windows-x32
+—Tools
+—Qt
[/code]

Here is the script deployWindowsApp.ps1:

[code lang=”PowerShell” wraplines=”false”]
param(
[string]$appName,
[string]$appSource,
[string]$appBuild,
[string]$qtBin,
[string]$dest

function fix([string]$path) {
return $path.Replace("/","\")
}
