Installing SleepyHead
I downloaded SleepyHead for Windows. I am running Windows 7 professional 64 bit. I get the following error messages when I click Sleepyhead.exe:
"This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "windows". Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."
Then: "This applications has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information."

Am I just unable to run SleepyHead on my version of Windows?

It runs on Windows 7 professional 64 bit.
Did you download: Latest Windows BrokenGL version v0.9.6 2014-06-23 38Mb?

Yes, I did. I downloaded the Windows zip file off this page:

I unzipped the file into a folder and clicked on Sleepyhead.exe. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

I have now downloaded both these zip files and all sleepyhead exe files give the same error messages I listed above.

I believe it's looking for the Apple Quicktime application. Google "Quicktime" and download the plugin.

Yeah you would think Qt would be Quicktime. I had it installed. So I redownloaded and ran the repair option. Still no Sleepyhead.

It's not Quicktime, the problem are some QT*.DLL s that should be in the root directory included with the sleepyhead program. Be sure you have unzipped all of the files using 7Zip program to a folder (i.e. C:\Sleepyhead). You should see all of these files. Note all the QT files

Sleeprider, thank you, you were right, I did not extract the files properly. Can you tell me which Sleepyhead zip file I want to use from the pic I posted? Sleepyhead-Testing [...] or Sleepyhead-20140623[...] ? Thank you so much, I knew it was some small stupid thing I was doing.

Edit: I installed the other Sleepyhead file and that one is working. All is well more or less. Thanks all for the help!

Glad you got it working! As long as you are using Version v0.9.8-1-testing, you have the most recent program. It really doesn't matter if you use the OpenGL or BrokenGL. Same program, different compatibility.
