Bug report #19569
QGIS 3.2.1 crashes upon startup when Vectorworks 2018 is installed
|Affected QGIS version:||3.2.1||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Windows 10 64bit||Easy fix?:||No|

We have encountered a problem on all of our machines, if we have Vectorworks 2018 installed.
After a little bit of research it appears, that Vectorworks 2018 is also copying files upon installation to the system32 folder.
Those files are the following:
Qt5Core.dll, Qt5Gui.dll, Qt5Network.dll, Qt5OpenGL.dll, Qt5Widgets.dll, Qt5Xml.dll (Version of all the Dlls: 220.127.116.11, 05.04.2018 08:51)
After the installation of Vectorworks, QGIS won't start. Attached are the screenshots of the error messages.
The workaround to solve this problem, is to delete/rename/move the ddl's from the system32 folder. After that step is done, QGIS will work just fine.
So far we did not figure out what effects the removal of the dll's might have on the software/systems.

Why did you close this bug?
because the "DLL hell" caused by other programs is not a QGIS issue: no program installer should ever put any DLL (potentially used by other programs) in the system32 folder.
