Hi Andrew,

I have developed a c++ plugin in QCAD community edition. Can you let me know how to distribute the plugin?

Thanks

You can simply bundle the plugin with your package / installer in the "plugins" directory.

Thanks Andrew.

But when my plugin contains QSharedPointer, when I load the dll it says The specified procedure could not be found.
I am using Qt 5.5.1 with MSVC 2013. QCAD version 3.22.0

This is a Qt related problem.
You can set the environment variable QT_DEBUG_PLUGINS=1 to output more information when starting QCAD.
Also try to Google for "qt plugin the specified procedure could not be found".
