I'm trying to open Qt Designer using the qgis-designer.bat file, but I'm receiving the following error message

Windows cannot find 'designer.exe'. Make sure you've typed the name correctly, then try again.

Any solutions?

My environment: QGIS 3.4.1 installed via OSGeo4W Network installer.

  • are you using the osgeo cmd window? – Ian Turton Nov 14 '18 at 8:53
  • I can find the .exe at ...\apps\Qt5\bin\designer.exe – gHupf Nov 14 '18 at 9:05
  • @gHupf i don't find the designer.exe there. That's strange! – Ionut Ungurianu Nov 14 '18 at 9:14
  • @IanTurton the same with osgeo cmd window as it seems that designer.exe it's lost. Any ideas on what should I do? – Ionut Ungurianu Nov 14 '18 at 9:16
  • Did you try reinstalling? I use the same version, also installed via OSGeo4W Network installer, so it should be there. – gHupf Nov 14 '18 at 18:59

The designer.exe is found in ...\OSGeo4W\apps\Qt5\bin\designer.exe if QGIS was installed via the OSGeo4W Network installer. If it is not found there a reinstallation my probably solve your problem.
