[Interest] packaging a build

Hey so thanks for the help! I actually already tried using the Dependency Walker, and included all the msvc files that it needs... and in desperation I copied every single dll it required from my system32 folder, which turned out to be a few hundred.... and it still didn't work at all. (and I've tried recompiling multiple times, copying dll's from different sources...)
I've included a link to to a zip of the application along with some of the dll's I tried (just the ones that I thought it actually needed, not the multitude that I tried)

I've also tried using CONFIG += embed_manifest_exe as suggested in http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7-snapshot/deployment-windows.html, but nothing really seems to work.

I would have tried compiling it statically, but when I tried building QT5 statically it failed.
Anyone have any other suggestions? I guess that switching to mingw/gcc is an option provided that I can get it to build on my computer, but I'd rather not...
