Android: Your application encountered a fatal error and cannot continue

  • Hello,

    I submitted an app in .aab format to play store. On downloading the app, It works fine on Android 5,6,7,8 versions. But, it throws this error on Android 9 and Android 10 version. - "your application encountered a fatal error and cannot continue" on opening the app.

    But, if I deploy the same app via USB to a device running Android 9 or Android 10, it works fine. Only on downloading from play store throws the above error.

    Qt Version 5.14.1
    Android SDK version 26
    Android NDK version r20b

    Any suggestions on how to proceed further?

    Thanks in advance

  • I'd try installing from device's file system and then with a web browser from a web server - that would at least make debugging faster... After that you can try to locate where it crashes and, after that, why.

  • Hi @nithinsuresh,

    This is a bug in Qt with aab, it was repoted at https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-80766
    For workaround solution you can build apk instead aab and upload all in one release, or add android.bundle.enableUncompressedNativeLibs = false inside gradle.properties

  • Thank you for your response @mvuori and @Quang-Phu.

    I tried @Quang-Phu solution. It is working perfectly fine. When i download the app from play store, i am not seeing any error. It launches normally.

    Thank you for your help @Quang-Phu
