[Interest] Desktop deployment

We use a custom build step in our .pro file to copy everything into a single directory ready for deployment (onto WinCE in our case). I think that using qmake you have all of the information you need for example the QT variable holds which Qt modules you're using so you can use that to figure out which Qt Dlls to copy.

Then again if you're doing everything in VisualStudio it might be easier to just create an installer for internal consumption from within VS, it's pretty easy to just drag in the dependencies.

I'm perfectly aware of this. Here my "problem" is more in the case where I just want to copy my exe to someone's else computer (which already have already all the needed "standard" runtimes installed).
Creating a full-fledged, customer-targeted installer is another matter, which is already nicely handled.
