Qt 5.15.1 installation on Windows seems to fail

See original GitHub issue

Hi @jurplel, I tried to install Qt 5.15.1 for Windows ( and it currently fails with:

FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'D:\\a\\QOwnNotes/Qt\\5.15.1\\mingw73_64\\bin\\qt.conf'
Traceback (most recent call last):

FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'D:\\a\\QOwnNotes/Qt\\5.15.1\\mingw73_64\\bin\\qt.conf'

The actual downloading of the packages seems to work.

Although deploying doesn’t seem to work. There seems to be a bug in Qt 5.14+ where windeployqt doesn’t find the platform bundles: 😞
