> Cheat.sh is a community-driven cheat sheets repository for programming languages, databases, Linux tools and commands. It also searches StackOverflow. It is fair to say that number of cheat sheets for Qt-related topics (C++, Qt, QML) is very small, so most of these results will be from StackOverflow. Some of them good, some not, but usually it is faster to search with a plugin then switch to a browser.

That is probably correct (e.g. https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTCREATORBUG-22853).
The prebuilt Qt binaries switched the OpenSSL libraries to 1.1, and it took us some time to realize we need to take some action for Qt Creator.
If you have this issue with Qt Creator 4.9, the solution is to install OpenSSL 1.1 and make Qt Creator find it (e.g. via PATH, possibly the dll names must fit as well).
You can check for success via Help > System Information from Qt Creator’s menu (that prints some information about the used SSL version).
Or use a newer Qt Creator ;)
