Right now deploying application that utilizes Qt 5.14 is broken within appveyor.

Visual Studio 2017 hasn't Qt 5.14 and Visual Studio 2019 hasn't Qt IFW. Any reason\estimation when Qt 5.14 will be added to Visual Studio 2017 image and when Qt IFW will be added to Visual Studio 2019 image?

    Hi Mark,

    We are in the process of updating images.

    On VS 2019 there is Qt IFW in C:\Qt\Tools\QtInstallerFramework\3.2\bin location. Could you give a try please and let us know how that worked?

    Hi Feodor,

    Thank you for very fast reaction, I appreciate all the help you provided me with.

    Could you give a try please and let us know how that worked? That worked thanks once again for helping!

    and one more question is there any chance that you know a path to Qt vcredist inside VS 2019 image?
    previously it was C:\Qt\vcredist\vcredist_msvc2017_x86.exe\C:\Qt\vcredist\vcredist_msvc2017_x64.exe but now there is no such path

    Is vcredist required for QTIFW to work?

    No it's not, right now the problem with Qt IFW is solved.

    vcredist is just quality of life question, previously I used vcredist from qt installation but in VS 2019 image there is no vcredist in that path anymore, so maybe you know is it shipped within Visual Studio 2019 image? But if not, it's okay, I have workaround for that.

    OK, you could install missing vcredist packages with the following PS script during the build:

    install:
    - ps: |
        iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/appveyor/build-images/master/scripts/Windows/install_qt_module.ps1'))
        Install-QtComponent -Id 'qt.tools.vcredist_msvc2017_x86' -ExcludeDocs -ExcludeExamples
        Install-QtComponent -Id 'qt.tools.vcredist_msvc2017_x64' -ExcludeDocs -ExcludeExamples
    

    Also, similarly you can install 5.14.1 on VS 2017 and see how it works for you:

    install:
    - ps: |
        iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/appveyor/build-images/master/scripts/Windows/install_qt_module.ps1'))
        Install-QtComponent -Version '5.14.1' -Name 'win32_msvc2017' -ExcludeDocs -ExcludeExamples
        ConfigureQtVersion 'C:\Qt' '5.14.1'
    

    or x64 version:

    install:
    - ps: |
        iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/appveyor/build-images/master/scripts/Windows/install_qt_module.ps1'))
        Install-QtComponent -Version '5.14.1' -Name 'win64_msvc2017_64' -ExcludeDocs -ExcludeExamples
        ConfigureQtVersion 'C:\Qt' '5.14.1'
    

    More examples here: https://github.com/appveyor/build-images/blob/master/scripts/Window...
