      Description

      Every time certain qml apps ae run in Qt Creator the following appears on the console:

      Starting C:\Users\jima\Documents\qtproj\build-test-Desktop_Qt_5_9_1_MinGW_32bit-Debug\debug\test.exe...
      QML debugging is enabled. Only use this in a safe environment.
      mincore\com\oleaut32\dispatch\ups.cpp(2128)\OLEAUT32.dll!772B5072: (caller: 772BFE4F) ReturnHr(1) tid(1818) 8002801D Library not registered.

      According to https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44579720/qt-widget-application-library-not-registered-error
      this occurs because the required version of the library oleaut32.dll is newer than what comes with stock Windows 10.   I did not verify this claim; but if this is the explanation then possibly something in QT creator 4.4.1 or Qt 5.9.2 was built on a pre-release version of Windows, and it should be re-released based on stock Windows 10.

      The program is trivial (just opens an empty ApplicationWindow).  I will attach the files.

      I'm running Microsoft windows 10 Home, Version 10.0.15063 Build 15063
