Can not run exampleB1.exe with qt5.14.1

Hi everyone, I’m a beginner of Geant4. I have build and installed Geant4_10_06 with Qt 5.14.1. When I was trying to execute exampleB1, some error arose. It show a dialogue box saying that exampleB1 can not find input point on Qt5OpenGl.dll. (MY system language is Chinese in the screenshot,sry, but it’s saying that.)

I think it is because .lib file which I used to generate the exampleB1.exe is not matching the .dll file. But after I delete all others Qt5OpenGl.dll in older version, it still gave this error.
Then I tried to run exampleB1.exe through qtcmd.

It was opend but couldn’t run init_vis.mac and give errors as

Dose anyone know where is the problem? And how can I fix this?

I’m not sure about the Qt font error (@lgarnier will have better knowledge here!), but the macro error is likely due to the application being run from/with a working directory which doesn’t contain the init_vis.mac file. If you run from a directory containing that file (it should be where you built exampleB1), things should run o.k., otherwise run exampleB1.exe passing it the full path to init_vis.mac, e.g.

> exampleB1.exe <fullpathto>/init_vis.mac

That may not totally work due to batch vs interactive running, but can at least help to diagnose any issues.

Thank you for the advie!
I’m quite sure that I put exampleB1.exe and all macro in same directory. It seems that they just can not find each other and QT’s .dll(not sure). Anyway, I run exampleB1.exe through windeploy, qt UI was opened successfully. BUT, It still can’t call macro files unless I add paths to macro files using /control/macroPath <path to macro> by myself. Although it is confusing and annoying, I can use it now. And I will creat new some new topic for other problems. Thank you again for your advice. :smile:

I have the error shown below. I am new at geant4, could you please suggest me in details?

There may be an option in windeploy that alloys you to specify the starting directory.
