Citra Canary wont even open?

When I used the installer for canary the shortcut didn’t work so i found the qt exe and ran it. The window that popped up says “This application failed to start because it could not find or load the QT platform plugin"windows” in “”."
Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

I’ve tried reinstalling multiple times with no success.

im getting the same after update

The same problem after the update.

this is fixed in 492. open the maintenencetool and choose update. the shortcut will be fixed shortly hopefully. you can find the maintenence tool in the “Add/Remove a program” in windows. Just choose “modify” in there

The issue has been fixed for me by updating to 492.

just pushed an update to try and fix the shortcut as well. will report back when thats done.

shortcut is fixed in 493
