Just a note, perhaps this is on Windows 10, in that case Microsoft has 
decided to "improve" that ages-old error message "The procedure entry 
point xxx could not be located in yyy" (it's been the same in Windows 
2,3,7,NT,ME,Vista believe me I've been there).

Anyway on Windows 10, the error message now points out the 
importing/consuming file of the entry point/function, *not* the 
producing/exporting file housing that function. So the message could 
mean that the qt5xml.dll failed to import toLatin1() from Qt5Core.dll. 
Perhaps you have an old (not 5.9.1) Qt5Xml.dll?
