Not even that if the DLLs are in your PATH. Usually I just have a link to
the exe in the project root directory and further linked in the task bar

My only concern currently is about weaker hardware not natively delivering

package, and I was not successful building in 5.0. Maybe it returns for

I think you have it when you update your QtCreator using the Qt Maintenance Tool. But I have no idea wheather Angle can emulate shaders in software mode for devices which don't support shaders.
