yes if you are using desktop Windows, that should work out of the box.

The situation is different for UWP applications as we use the minimal 
supported version of the Windows Kit (10.0.14393.0) for building the 
installer packages and the new functionality is not available there. In 
order to use the new functionality in UWP apps, users have to build Qt 
themselves for the time being.
