You were right about the absolute path.
I have tested both the launch and open process method, and both
launch the QT 7.1 standalone installer properly.
Strange thing is the QT 6.5 standalone installer doesn't need an
absolute path. I don't understand what difference there is for an
application like the QT installer to be launched through a relative
or an absolute file path. But at least my problem is solved.
