Qt Creator 4.3.0 & stability



  • Hello everyone,
    with the release of Qt 5.9 I also updated my QtCreator to the currently latest version of 4.3.0

    But this one seems more unstable than its precursor, I have way more unexpected crashes.

    Last time it crashed when I tried to open a Designer Formular Class. But it is not reproduceable, or I would have already created a bugreport.
    But it is noticable, 5 crashes to basically none.

    My question, can anyone else confirm this rather subjective observation?

    Edit:
    OS: Windows 10 Pro, x64

    Probably you should note the OS you are on.

    I had upgraded to creator 4.3.0 as well. I had one crash so far, if I am not mistaken, but those happen once in a while. Therefore, I cannot confirm yet.
    This is on win 10 64bit.



  • @koahnig thanks for the reminder and the answer, I'll update the OP.



  • Please report your crashes so that we can fix them!

    We did quite a few behind-the-scene cleanups in 4.3 which are not user visible (when they do not cause crashes:-). I am currently fixing stuff for 4.3.1, so that it will be up to the usual standards.

    in Order to add to @hunger Here is the link to JIRA for reporting bugs.



  • Since my last post, I had 4 more crashes, twice while simply typing in my cpp.file that I was currently working in.

    How can I get usefull information to the bugreports ?

    All I would have is:
    Qt-Creator crashed with the default windows error message while typing on my keyboard. Attaching VS-Debugger failed because I don't have enough memory available, seems like 2.3 gig of 8 is not enough.

    Doesn't seem like it would help much.

    I had a similar experience yesterday. Creator was simply gone while typing in my cpp. I couldn't pinpoint the problem either.
    However, IMHO it is not more than before, but those things are sometimes hard judge.

    I am using Qt 5.9 MinGW and Qt 5.9 Android with Qt creator at the moment. I do not cconsider this as the reason for the problem.



  • @koahnig
    well its getting more frequent - 4 times today - oO.
    But I'm starting to be able to tell when its about to happen.

    I think my installation might be corrupt, just before the last crash QtCreator claimed 1096 mb ram. Which seems highly unusuall, for idle times -> no active compile or debug running.

    Maintenance Tool Uninstall -> Install maybe that solves everything.



  • So, I did uninstall QtCreator und installed the latest version again. This seems to have solved the issue.

    Crashes are reduced from twice per day down to none (8-Days and counting)

    The good old On/Off-Bugfix.

    On a side note, sadly you can't use the maintenance tool to uninstall and reinstall QtCreator. Its the only packages you can't deselect...

    So had to do it the manual way.

    You should report that to the bugtracker, so the installer can be fixed. ;)

    Not sure if it can be consiedered as a bug.
    My guess is that thereason is in the meta/package.xml with a setting like

    <Essential>true</Essential>
    

    This prevents a deselect during installation and also prevents the removal and reinstallation. Overall it would be a request to have another choice to have a reinstallation of selected features.

    Bug, a suggestion or a task, call it however suits you; it should still allow you to uninstall the tool.

    This prevents a deselect during installation and also prevents the removal and reinstallation.

    I don't know that part of the infrastructure well, so I'll take your word for it. I rarely use the maintenance tool, but many people do, so it'd be good to work as smoothly as possible. ;)
