Problems with debugging (Windows + Android)



  • Alright, me and my team are fairly new to QT but we've spent decades in software development. I must say I have never previously experienced such buggy and horrific development experience. Might be due to our set-up. The number of bugs we've stumbled upon would require me to create 10 threads over here, so I withhold with these for now.

    What I would like to get sorted out is our inability to get the app deployed. That happens randomly like there's 70% chance that the deployment process and debugger attachment would fail.
    So in short, when I choose to deploy the app to phone,it's 50/50 whether the deployment succeeds and debugger 'settles' (after long waiting even if nothing changed within QML/C++ files).

    When the process fails we get:

    alt text
    alt text
    any idea how to cope what that?

    Also quite often we get

    thus, the overall work experience is really bad.

    moment ago I got

    Initializing deployment to Android device/simulator Error while building/deploying project PROJECT(kit: KIT_ID) When executing step "Deploy to Android device"
    Thus it's very frustrating.. it's 90% time wasted looking on whether deployment succeeds. I would blame it on invalid settings but then half of the time it succeeds.

    QT Creator 14.12.2
    jdk1.8.0_144
    NDK 21.1.63

    Another random error came to existence just if previous ones were not enough:

    Failed to remove directory "C:PATH\assets\android_rcc_bundle\qml".
    Error while building/deploying project ID (kit:KIT_ID)
    When executing step "Copy application data"

    After 2 weeks, working with this software is real developer's nightmare. QT Creator simply decides from time to time to create folders under a wrong owner. (yeah why not!). Running as Administrator helps to mitigate this but that's now what we want.
