[fixed] Qt5.5 App fails on Android outside QtCreator

  • My app runs perfectly fine on my Android device when I deploy and run it from QtCreator.

    But when I disconnect the device and try to run the app directly (launching from the icon on the device, not from QtCreator), then it fails to launch with the error message:

    "Your application encountered a fatal error and cannot continue."

    Whatever the error is, it's relatively new, coming up only in the last few weeks or so. Prior to that, I was able to run the app on the device.

    I'm using Qt 5.5 built from the dev git repository, building the app with QtCreator 3.2.2, running on Linux 3.16 (Debian).

    Does anyone have a clue what might be going wrong?

  • It think it was QTBUG-42251. Apparently fixed in 5.4, the fix is now merged back into dev (5.5).
