Qt Creator startup problem in Windows 10



  • I'm having problem running Qt creator in windows 10. I've tried using "-noload Welcome" and turning off windows firewall. I don't have any anti virus installed. All other Qt programs(Qt Designer/Qt Linguist etc) are running fine. How do I get to running logs for Qt creator? If I can get to log I might be able to see if there is any issue. Please suggest.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    What problems are you getting ?

    You can see all the start options from Qt Creator when you add --help to the parameters.



  • No Screen is showing up. I don't see any instance in Task Manager. I was wondering if I can get to the logs what is terminating Qt



  • Hi, you could try launching Qt Creator from Dependency Walker (first open qtcreator.exe from Dependency Walker and then press F7 to profile it). That will hopefully give you a trace of what DLLs are ioaded and where it crashes.



  • Thanks for your suggestion. I did get some dll load(windows dll load) error but I get that error for some other application as well which runs fine. I have never used dependency walker so not sure if I did the setup correctly.



  • Ok, Qt Creator needs the MSVC 2013 dlls, sometimes they're missing in WIndows 10, try to install them



  • I have tried that but still not starting up.



  • Hmm, maybe some plugin is causing trouble, try starting Qt Creator with just the bare bones Core plugin:
    qtcreator -noload all -load Core



  • Yep. It worked. I guess I now can load one by one and see which one is failing. Thank you very much.



  • I guess the problematic dlls are:
    Welcome.dll
    QmlProfilerExtension.dll
    QmlProfiler.dll
    QmlDesigner.dll

    Since below command works/ brings up Qt creator
    qtcreator -noload Welcome -noload QmlProfilerExtension -noload QmlProfiler -noload QmlDesigner

    There is a general message though:
    Running Windows Runtime device detection.
    No winrtrunner.exe found.

    I am running below version:
    Qt Creator 4.0.3
    Based on Qt 5.7.0 (MSVC 2013, 32 bit)
    Built on Jul 5 2016 01:09:09
    From revision ce4ddcb060



  • Hi, judging from that list of "no-show" plugins I'm guessing the culprit is OpenGL-related.
    Try updating your video driver...



  • You are absolutely right. I disabled my graphics driver and Qt creator starts with no error. I am not able to update my graphics driver yet, but I'm sure I'll find a way. At least I know the root cause. Thanks for helping me out.



  • Hey @hskoglund

    I have also the same problem as @tapQt . I would like to compile meshlab_mini.pro code which is produce a simple/limited version of Meshlab (https://github.com/cnr-isti-vclab/meshlab). I'm using QTCreator 4.2.1, QT 5.7 (just checked QT 5.7 in installation procedure because the could should be compiled with Qp 5.7), MSVC 2015, 32 bit.
    When I try to open "meshlab-mini.pro" I get the following error:

    Running Windows Runtime device detection.
    No winrtrunner.exe found.
    Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: script
    Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: script
    Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: script
    Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: script

    I have updated my graphic card driver and even have disabled them (as @tapQt mentioned) but the problem is still remaining. Do you have any idea how to solve that problem?

    Thanks :)

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    It's not the same problem.

    That project requires the QtScript module which has been removed since 5.6. You first have to build and install it in order to build that application with Qt >= 5.6
