QML apps based on QQuickViewer are not runnable using static build of Qt 5 due to "qtquick2plugin" issue




      I have built Qt 5.0 RC statically and added it to building "Kit" in QtCreator 2.6 (Qt5 sources were taken from git yesterday, configured with "-debug-and-release -static -opensource -confirm-license -nomake examples -nomake tests -no-icu -opengl desktop -platform win32-msvc2010" and built fully successfull without any errors).

      Then i tried to build simple QtQuick 2 "Hello world" project created by QtCreator's wizard and based on QQuickView descendant. Build was successfull (both debug and release).

      Running executable shows only narrow horizontal windows header of the application and is not useable. In debug mode i see following in the pane:

      module "QtQuick" plugin "qtquick2plugin" not found
      import QtQuick 2.0
      Remove me: fixing toplevel window flags
      Unable to find a renderable master window QtQuick2ApplicationViewer(0x1bfd74) when trying to render QtQuick2ApplicationViewer(0x1bfd74) ( QRect(4,26 116x0) )

      So i tried to add some workaround for QtQuick2 plugin same as for "windows" platform plugin linked statically:
      .pro file :

      contains(QT_CONFIG, static) {
        QTPLUGIN += windows \
        LIBS += -L"d:\SDK\Qt5.0\qtbase\qml\QtQuick.2"  

      main.cpp :

      #include <QtPlugin>
      #ifdef STATIC_BUILD

      Application builds successfully but after running app the same problem is stayed...

      Then i tried to put manually "d:\SDK\Qt5.0\qtbase\qml\QtQuick.2" folder from that static Qt 5.0 build to folder of executable, according to docs. Result is the same. The reason may be that there are not any plugin *.dlls (qtquick2plugin.dll), only qtquick2plugin.lib and qtquick2plugind.lib. The "qmldir" also present.

      Then i tried to take same "QtQuick.2" plugin folder from my previous dynamically built Qt 5.0 beta 2 and put it near executable. It contains expected "qtquick2plugin.dll" file. Application was not runnable yet but situation has changed after this action. I saw different debug message in the pane:

      plugin cannot be loaded for module "QtQuick": Unknown error
      import QtQuick 2.0
      Remove me: fixing toplevel window flags
      Unable to find a renderable master window QtQuick2ApplicationViewer(0x1bfa90) when trying to render QtQuick2ApplicationViewer(0x1bfa90) ( QRect(4,26 116x0) )

      So in result QML aplications are not useable with Qt5.0 static build now. What can i do to workaround it? Help please..
