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.

    Details:
    Qt Version 5.14.1
    Android SDK version 26
    Android NDK version r20b
    android:minSdkVersion="21"
    android:targetSdkVersion="29"

    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
