Qt 5 application crashes on startup on Windows 8??? [Solved]
One of the users of my software is "reporting crash on startup on Windows 8 Pro 64-bit":https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/sequalator/pGQC_wWYVGc.
I do not have access to Windows 8, but only Windows7 PC on which it runs fine.
Can somebody please try to reproduce this bug on Windows 8 and confirm it is true?
You can download the application from "here":https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0-rlsRpLGiDQTliMVhMLWNrbEk/edit?usp=sharing.
Alternatively there is a previous version built using Qt4 which can be downloaded from "here":https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0-rlsRpLGiDVUJNMENKYlRWOW8/edit?usp=sharing.
Requesting help from the community...
I'll check next time I'm on Windows and post the results here. Usually, the software that works on Windows 7 also works on Window 8, there should not be any problems.
Confirmed, it does not work.
The platform plugin is indeed missing from the zip. I am surprised that it works on Windows 7, you maybe have the platform plugin in PATH.
You need to copy qwindows.dll into platform plugins folder. See the deployment guide: "link":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/windows-deployment.html.
Hi, it does not work on Windows 7 either, unless you build a 64-bit MinGW version of Qt 5.2.1, then either copy the platforms subdirectory (with a qwindows.dll in it) so that it's placed together with sequalator.exe, or put it in C:\5.2.1\64\mingw\plugins (the path Qt Creator looks for on your dev. PC).
