Quick Controls 2 example sefaults on window close

  • Hey all,

    I recently upgraded my graphics card driver to the latest from AMD (card: AMD Radeon HD 8790M, driver date: 09/01/2017) and now any QML application segfaults when I close the application. I first noticed this with my own application that I am writing, but I was able to reproduce with any QML application (including Qt's QML examples). Does anyone have any ideas on why this would be happening?

    Since you updated the driver of your video card then it's likely the culprit. You should downgrade it and test again your application.

  • Any idea which version(s) would be compatible with QML? I do not know which version was previously installed, and the option in Windows device manager to rollback the driver is unavailable.

  • I reverted to the 12/07/2016 driver and the issue is no longer present. It's very strange that the old drivers work but the new ones do not. However, I'm glad that it's fixed.

    Nothing really strange, the new driver likely introduced a regression that didn't got caught.
