Thread: side-by-side configuration is incorrect

  1. #1

    Default side-by-side configuration is incorrect

    I am trying to run Qt (4.5.2) with static lib in debug version using
    VC 8 (2005) on Windows.

    It works fine on the very machine where it's made.
    But it gives me error messages as below when I try it on other machines.

    "The application has failed to start because the application configuration
    is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem"


    "The application has failed to start because it's side-by-side configuration
    is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail"

    Could you tell me what the message means?

    I searched and got similar threads
    from the web and Qt forum. I tried several but with no success.

    My code is the simplest one "Hello Qt" from the QT book.

    fyi, here are the setup for VS2005.

    Default Re: side-by-side configuration is incorrect

    It's a Windows message, it has nothing to do with Qt. It's most likely your libraries are incompatible with the system you're running them on (like if you're trying to deploy Qt libraries in Win98 environment) or you forgot to deploy Qt libs at all.

    There is of course also the question of the point of deploying application in debug static mode...
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.
