So I used to do the windeployqt.exe on it, and it always worked until 5.14. Now windeployqt says that the qdoc.exe is a Debug executable > (!), and it fails to deploy Qt5Cored.dll for obvious reasons. It seems like windeployqt is broken as well.

If you don't to wait for 5.14.1 then I've patched utils.cpp (see the bug 
above), you can then rebuild windeployqt so that it works in MinGW 
5.14.0 or download the patched .exe it from here: 
https://tripleboot.org/Uploads/windeployqtreleaseonly.zip (32-bit) or 
https://tripleboot.org/Uploads/windeployqt64releaseonly.zip (64-bit)
Just drop it in MinGW's bin directory.
