Hi,

I don't know about anything alike in Qt4, but reading the docs it seems quite straightforward and not too much work to implement that function yourself? Of course, it depends on how to detect "executables". By name, maybe trying out extensions (like ".exe", ".bat", ".cmd" on Windows) would be easy and fast (regarding performance). Parsing the file (or just checking the magic number) header might be some more work (and be somewhat slower) I guess. Only thing requiring more effort, as I imagine, might be to differenciate many platforms or ones very different from the "common" ones (Windows, Linux, etc.).



kind regards

Hi,

in Qt5 we have http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qstandardpaths.html#findExecutable . Is
there something similar available in Qt 4.8, too? Can somebody point me to the
proper static function?

Regards,
Alexander
