Salome-Meca 2019 on Windows 10 - unable to run simulation

Hello gentlemen,
I tried both 2018 and 2019 version of SMECA for windows. It seems to be working but I'm not able to make simulations run.
In SMECA 2019 python command window, I spotted quite often:

This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "windows" in "".

I googled this issue, but the advice was to delete QT from PATH, but in my PATH there was no QT...
I have installed the different versions of python in my PC, and in the PATH I have the path to python 3.7. I tried to delete it from PATH with no effect for both SM 2018 and 2019.

SM 2018 seems trying to simulate something, at least there is a lot of information in stderr_command_salome.log, but it is incomprehensible for me (too much of French there). But simulation ends with the red flag.
I'm obtaining less info with SM 2019, but the sim ends with a red flag as well.

Attaching models, I hope that somebody wise could help me.

Nope... Just gave it up. I thought to give it a try later, but I was a bit busy...

Re: Salome-Meca 2019 on Windows 10 - unable to run simulation

Thank you very much for the information!
Taking this opportunity, I would like to say thank colleagues who are making a port of the program on Windows. I am sure this work is important for the popularization of SALOME-MECA and CODE_ASTER. Many engineers are inexperienced with Linux. In addition, installing the program on Linux is also not easy and requires some experience.
In my case, for review, I use in parallel the 2019 version for Windows and the 2019 version for Linux as a part of the CAELinux distribution on the Virtual Box virtual machine. Pre-installed version of SALOME_MECA included in CAELinux works without issues. Thanks to the CAELinux developers for the opportunity to get started with SALOME_MECA
I also tried to install SALOME_MECA 2020 on CAELinux or on a clean installed Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and 18.05 LTS, but it has not yet succeeded, despite the very informative instructions on the forum

Hello,

try to install prerequisities. Detailed description is in README which you can open after download. I think it is Microsoft Visual C++ 2014 for SALOME 2019.

JanBlokes, thank you very much for your reply! Indeed, it is specified in the file Readme.txt:
Microsoft Visual C++ 2014 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64) for Salome and Python
But it is not completely clear what is this version. Could you provide a download link?
