Qt Creator 4.2.1 in Windows 7 64Bit VM crashes on start



  • #!/bin/hi *

    I've just installed Qt Creator 4.2.1 (Community) inside a Windows 7 64Bit VirtualBox instance. Everything seems fine, but when I launch it, Windows Aero suddenly is disabled and the program crashed. Afterwards Windows Aero enables it again and Windows asks me to send a crash report.

    Running from with cmd.exe does not spill out any extra information:

    [code]
    C:\Qt\Tools\QtCreator\bin\qtcreator.exe
    [/code]

    does not yield anything.

    What can I do?

    Hi
    Disable Welcome screen so u dont need openGL running
    https://forum.qt.io/topic/36827/qt-creator-3-0-welcome-mode-not-working-in-virtualbox-vm

    as in
    qtcreator -noload Welcome -noload QmlDesigner -noload QmlProfiler

    If that works, its jsut good old openGL.
    You can then

    1. fix openGl
      or
    2. use the About Plugins to disable it perm. ( In Creator)


  • Hi, thank you.

    Sorry for the late reply, but unfortunately I was not mailed about your answer.

    The tip succeeded and I can start QtCreator with the parameters you applied. However, I do not know which Plugins to disable.

    Thx!

    Just try disable Welcome in creator
    Help->About Plugins. type welcome in search
    the modules are the same as on cmdline.



  • Thank you very much! Disabling the Welcome Plugin did indeed fix my problem! =)

    Solved!
