The attached project makes qgis 1.6 crash right away.
I think it is because directory ../VGT_OLD is
now ../VGT/VGT_OLD
QGIS should complain, but not crash

Verified: it is because of the change in the path. I've made a version with
the correct path and qgis 1.6 opens the project with no problems.
Perhaps the name of the ticket should be changed to "Wrong paths in the project file
make qgis 1.6 crash"

#2 Updated by Anne Ghisla over 11 years ago

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

I opened the project with QGIS , and it prompted me to locate the missing layers (that I don't have, so it can act as a renamed folder).

Clicking "Cancel" led me to empty canvas and legend, but no crash. I assume the ticket can be closed.
