I am really a newbie in Qt world, and unfortunately Google didn't help
me this time.
Currently I am working on an installer for my plugin for Qt Creator on
Windows, but I just can't find a good way to enumerate all installed
Qt Creators (to copy the plugin dll to a plugin directory of each
I realized that (at least) fresh Qt builds can be found in
so an installer could check all such entries, then check presence of
qtcreator.exe in <InstallLocation>\Tools\QtCreator\bin\qtcreator.exe
(<InstallLocation> is a value of "InstallLocation" in
Is there a better way?
Might it happen that this way will not work, i.e. probably there is
another way of installing Qt Creator?
What's a common way to distribute Qt creator plugins? Just looked at
qtc-cppcheck, and they just distribute a compiled dll, without an
installer at all...
