QtWebEngineProcess.exe vs. Debugging/Crashing

  • Hi everyone,

    As I understand every instance of QtWebEngineView starts one instance of QtWebEngineProcess.exe. That exe gets "killed" when the Qt App is orderly shut down.

    Unfortunately that does not happen on "unorderly" shutdowns such as "stopped" debugging sessions (Visual Studio) or application crashes. In that case the QtWebEngineProcess.exe keeps running (acquiring a high amount of CPU usage). And everytime I start a new debugging session from within VS a new QtWebEngineProcess.exe gets started.

    Is there any way to avoid this (e.g. by NOT using QtWebEngineProcess.exe at all)?

    Thanks and greetings,
