Good morning Ulf,

Ok, so this this the news Qt 6 / CMake approach to things and we can’t avoid it right?

However, as it is, its buggy. I will upload my last week example to https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-110110 <https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-110110>

Because I’ve been struggling with this for days without having success. I’ve also shared this example with another top level Qt developer who couldn’t figure it out as well. I’ve only tested on Mac so far. At the time being this is a full blocker.

Thanks for your help and insights.

Have an excellent week!

Best regards,

QML modules piggy-back on that by creating small plugins that do nothing but hold a reference to the type registration function.
