I am completely uninstalling and reinstalling Qt when I change versions so
that I don't believe this is the problem. I double checked in the registry
and the only Qt references I can find are in ...MuiCache and they are all to
Qt 4.7.3 that I currently have installed.

I rebuilt plplot 5.9.7 with Qt 4.5.3 (Qt SDK 2009.04) and its included
compiler gcc 3.4.5.
These are the versions that worked OK with my application last Friday.
cmake -G "MinGW Makefiles" -DTEST_DYNDRIVERS=OFF -DBUILD_TEST=ON
-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX= .. >cmake.txt
I've attached cmake.txt, some of the output came to the screen, I've
attached that as cmake2.txt.
Then I did mingw32-make "VERBOSE=1" >make.txt
I've attached make.txt

I added the newly created dll folder to my path and x01c -dev qtwidget runs
OK as does qt_example
I checked the DLL sizes and they are different (smaller) from the ones I
created last Friday which worked with Netbeans.
Then I did mingw32-make install > makeinstall.txt, I've attached the output.
So I was wrong when I said on Friday that you can't do it all with just a
single cmake, sorry for the confusion.
I did the Netbeans make again of my simple test application
It still doesn't run, just returns straight to the command prompt without
any error message.
I also did the qt make of the is application, it still doesn't run, qt says
D:\Data\QtProjects\App\release\App.exe exited with code 1
I've attached the Qt make log.

That will require uninstalling Qt 4.5.3 and installing Qt 4.7.3, once I've
done that I will repeat all the above tests and send results in a separate
