Qt World Summit: Submit your Presentation

This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way windows 7

  • Hi all,

    I recently created a program using qt 5.1.0 on windows 8. After getting the release build compiled and stacking together the dlls, i got it working perfectly on my windows 8 machine. However, when I try to send it to my friends and family on windows machines 7 and below, it doesnt work at all, and displays this message instead:

    "this application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way..."

    Honestly, im kinda stumped on what to do here. I assume there is something about the way its compiling, or perhaps its the project file, but nothing comes to mind yet. Is there any way to tell what's causing this, or better yet, is there a way to fix this? Thank you in advance

    ps. lemme know if i need to share more info on the subject

  • if you compile it on a Windows 7 machine, you will probably solve your problem?

    I'm not completely used to developing applications on windows 8, because it has some odd quirks with file redirection and partially running processes.

  • actually, scratch what i said before, apparently, this program works on MY MACHINE ALONE. it doesnt even work on a friend's windows 8 machine... i am officially stumped.

    I have no idea what is going on here. is it just the way qt builds things?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Check that your other machine has the VS2012 runtime installed

    Hope it helps
