I am a newbie to software development. I had the following query.
Suppose I develop a software using QT 5 open source IDE. Now my question is two-fold:
1. How can I create the final executable file that I can upload for my users? I understand that runtime DLLs shall be required and I have tried Enigma Virtual Box software for bundling runtime files. It does create the file that I can execute from any folder in my PC. However, surprisingly when I transfer that "boxed" file to another PC, it does not run. Both the PCs have Windows 7 installed on them.
2. Secondly, I see possible future issues with Antivirus Softwares. Apparently when I try to run the boxed exe file, it gets rejected by the Antivirus Software on my PC. Is there a way in which I can get my exe file verified/checked/registered by the Antivirus Softwares so that my users don't face any problems in executing the program.
I cannot afford the QT commercial licence, but I am prepared to buy any economical "setup file generating" software (if it exists) to solve the above issues. Please suggest some.
