Runtime Error : QWindowsFontEngine, createDIBSection, createEngine



  • Hi there,

    I have porting my current project in Qt5.5 to Qt5.8 and successfully compile and build the project using mingw53 32 bit compiler.
    However, when RUN project, the app suddenly crashed and closed with error as below:

    setGeometry: Unable to set geometry 1920x1080+8+36 on QWidgetWindow/'MainWindowWindow'. Resulting geometry: 1916x1048+8+36 (frame: 8, 36, 8, 8, custom margin: 0, 0, 0, 0, minimum size: 1236x658, maximum size: 16777215x16777215).
    QIODevice::write (QTcpSocket): device not open
    QIODevice::write (QTcpSocket): device not open
    createEngine: CreateFontIndirect failed ()
    QWindowsFontEngine: CreateFontIndirect failed for family 'fk7xl1i-15vl-e7e-2i435n9e6c9la' ()
    createDIB: CreateDIBSection failed.

    The error much more longer than above, mostly is font failed to create etc.

    Anyone can assist on what should I do to fix this error?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    That's pretty strange. Which version of Windows are you running ?

    Do you also get that from a default application ?

    Hi. Thanks for your respond.

    I am using Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit.
    This is the first time I'm facing this error and only occurs when running Qt project using Qt5.8.0 MinGW compiler (only install mingw).

    Below is the partial of Application Output (because it way too long to paste in here(1485 lines))

    Mostly the error is about QWindowsFontEngine.
    What could be the causes?
    Is there any other application that needs to be installed to prevent those font errors?

    Kindly assist. Thanks again :)

    AFAIK; no you shouldn't need anything more.

    So you don't have that problem if building with a MSVC version of Qt ?

    Again, did you try with a default application ?



  • @SGaist

    Pardon me, Default Application as Hello World? Nothing as those errors occurred.

    As for MSVC, no, haven't tried because we intended to use MinGW compiler only.


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Ok, so it's something in your application.

    What type of application is ? Widget ? QtQuick ?

    Are you restoring the geometry on startup ?



  • @SGaist

    It is widget application.
    On start up it did maximize app window, but will it caused the fonts error?
    Or because of webkit?


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Webkit ? Did you build it yourself since it's been removed from the binary package in 5.6 ?



  • @SGaist

    I'm using this https://github.com/annulen/webkit/releases/download/qtwebkit-tp5/qtwebkit-tp5-qt58-mingw530-x86.zip
    Last time I've tried to build the Webkit package using qt5.8, but it shows Entry Point Not Found error when running the project, therefore I'm just using built files from the URL above. The project was able to compile and run, however, it crashed after few seconds (as in errors show in the previous posts).


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    @Konstantin-Tokarev does this error ring a bell ?



  • @Reonyx_Tech Previous issue with "entry point not found" was caused by Qt 5.5 binaries being loaded by application. Errors you've posted above may also be caused by the same thing.



  • @Konstantin-Tokarev @SGaist

    I found the cause of those error, it is due to fonts.css in html files.
    When I removed the link from <head>, the application was successfully run without crashed.

    Just wonder, how come its not working now in qt5.8 but just nice back then in qt5.5 ?

    BTW, thanks both for your help and idea :)
