Blank New Project Throws Exceptions

  • Exception thrown at 0x000007FEFD5E9E5D in ****.exe: Microsoft C++ exception: OSException at memory location 0x000000000026EABC.

    These occur on start-up of an empty Qt 5.13.0 project. All I did was use the Qt VS Tools in Visual Studio 2015 to make an empty Qt GUI Application, and I get these exceptions when running it unmodified from there.

    How can I eliminate these?

    @l-spiro Do you have anti-virus software running? Try to disable it and run the app again.
    And you start the app from Visual Studio, right?

  • I should not have any anti-viruses running etc.
    It is being run from Visual Studio, yes.

    This is so rare that Google only has 2 hits: https://www.google.com/search?q="OSException+at+memory+location"

    The only thing I can think of at this stage is to run the program in a debugger like WinDBG and see if the stack trace contains any clues.

    I suspect that if you install all this on a different PC, you won't see any of the issues that you've been facing in recent days. There's even a chance that logging into a different account on your same PC might make the problem disappear.
