    I need to build a windows application with v-play and need static linking.

    is there a tutorial on how to do this for minGW?

    or MSVC2017?

    and is it possible to include the qml files as well?

    some help is really appreciated.



    is it even possible to create a static linked executable with v-play functionality in it for us?

    if not, how can we protect qml files when dynamically linked?

    Hi Bas,

    Felgo actually already comes as a static library, so you would only need to compile Qt statically on your own or ask for a static build if you’re a Qt license holder. There a a couple of instructions and how-tos how to build Qt statically on official documentation and wiki pages, e.g. here: https://wiki.qt.io/Building_a_static_Qt_for_Windows_using_MinGW

    May I ask why you want to link statically? Protecting QML files is actually described in our publishing guide here, this is completely independent from using a static or dynamic build.





    Hi Alex,

    thanx for the reply.

    the reason is that i build an android app for Nvidia Shield TV (with an extra Activity and startup banner)

    but my client had no trust that the device is holding up for a couple of years and

    when nvidia decides to quit supporting the device then my client has a problem.

    so he made a go for a and chooses for a nuc pc with windows on it.

    to protect the source code QML mainly i can as you described compile it in the executable.

    i wanted to create 1 exe file and don’t have lots of dependencies like dlls or other directories hanging around.

    but that is no problem anymore and i was curious if i could build an exe without dynamically linked files.
