    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You don't give enough information. What OS are you running ? Which version of Qt are you using ? When exactly does it crash ?

    What does a run through the debugger tell you ?

  • Hi SGaist,
    A clean and rebuild solve the problem. Thanks the reply!

    Running on Windows ? :)

    Anyway, nice you found and and thanks for sharing, can you also please update the thread title prepending [solved] so other forum users may know a solution has been found :)

  • No, running on Fedora 18, Qt Creator 2.8.0 based on Qt 4.8.5, QMake version 2.01a. Next time I will update the thread title with [solved] tag immediately.

    Many thanks:)

    You're welcome !

    Strange, it's typically the kind of strange crash I have mostly on Windows.

    Anyway, happy coding !
