Windows versions earlier than 8 are not supported



  • Hello,

    I'm developing an application with a QWebEngineWidget as a part of a dialog. But when the dialog opens, I have the following message in the console:

    [25632:23236:0611/084050.968:INFO:media_foundation_video_encode_accelerator_win.cc(370)] Windows versions earlier than 8 are not supported.
    

    but my application doesn't crash, only the webenginewidget stays blank.
    If I try with the "WebEngine Widgets Minimal Example", I have the same message in the console, some others with backtraces, and the app crashes.

    My configuration is the following:

    • Windows 7 Professional SP1 64bits (behind a proxy)
    • Qt 5.11.0 with msvc2017 64-bit prebuilt components
    • QWebengine module

    Does this mean that QWebEngineWidget can't be used in windows 7 ?

    Thanks

    hi,

    short answer, yes

    as far as I know, QWebEngineWidget is based on Chronium api and looking here google says it should work with win 7 and newer, so no Idea why it doesn't work with win7
    maybe the version used to build QwebEngineWidget for Qt 5.11 does no longer support Win7? You'll have to check the release notes of 5.11 what version of chronium is used and verify that.
