QGIS crashes in Windows when opening a project that does work on Linux

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:Yes Copied to github as #:19269


I have been developing a project in QGIS Master (2.5) on Ubuntu with lots of edit widgets and drag and drop forms. When I ship it to a client to open on Windows it crashes, generating the attached minidump (main minidump file 23MB, too big to upload, please contact me for it).

  • Crashes QGIS or corrupts data changed from No to Yes

#2 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 10 years ago

  • Status changed from Open to Feedback
  • Category set to Project Loading/Saving

does you client use qgis master? if not, what happens if he opens the project with qgis master (that can eventually install using osgeo4w)?

what happens if you open the project in qgis 2.4?

Note that I tested Gavin's project and it seems something in composer is causing it to crash. Traceback below:

Removing the <composer> element from the .qgs file manually resolved the crash issue.

I know we can't guarantee backwards compatibility of projects but perhaps there is something that can be done to prevent older QGIS versions crashing when loading newer version's projects....

If you can't think of any reasonable approach to do that I think we should just close out this ticket.
