Qt OpenGL window example crash and slow behavior.

  • I am using the code from this OpenGL window example:
    The only thing I haven't changed is the default .pro file:

    Project created by QtCreator 2013-02-05T00:47:34


    QT += core gui

    greaterThan(QT_MAJOR_VERSION, 4): QT += widgets

    TARGET = untitled4
    TEMPLATE = app

    SOURCES += main.cpp

    HEADERS += mainwindow.h

    FORMS += mainwindow.ui
    When I run the application, I see the spinning triangle.

    The problem is that minimizing the application crashes it with the message:

    bq. Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
    This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information

    This is the output:

    bq. Starting D:\Documents\Code\nQt\untitled4-build-mingw32-Debug\debug\untitled4.exe...
    Invalid parameter passed to C runtime function.
    Invalid parameter passed to C runtime function.
    Assertion failed!
    Program: D:\Documents\Code\nQt\untitled4-build-mingw32-Debug\debug\untitled4.exe
    File: ......\3rdparty\angle\src\libGLESv2\Framebuffer.cpp, Line 504
    Expression: Framebuffer::completeness() == 0x8CD5
    D:\Documents\Code\nQt\untitled4-build-mingw32-Debug\debug\untitled4.exe exited with code 3

    Furthermore when I drag the window or resize it, it happens incredibly slowly.

    I am using the mingw version of Qt 5 in Qt Creator.
    What should I do to solve these problems?

  • I get the same problem with MS2010 compiler. any news?

  • I am now using Qt 5.0.1/Qt Creator 2.6.2 and still have problems minimizing the window.

  • I'm using Qt 5.0.1 / Creator 2.7.0 beta with MS2010 compiler - the same behaviour. The assertion box shows that the assert is thrown in the ANGLE portion of QT. A related issue to this is maybe
    "This issue on the angle project page at Google-code":

  • Qt5.1.1 Windows MinGW & MSVC2010 32 compilers configured for OpenGL : there's no crash on minimizing but dragging the window is slow while QtQuick2 examples work fine
