As you might know, Qt Group doesn’t publish source code neither changelog for Qt 5.15 LTS updates. Instead getting those now requires buying a commercial license starting with Qt 5.15.3. This decision was controversial and pretty unfortunate for many Qt users but luckily Qt Group decided to release source code for each LTS update exactly after 1 year. Qt Group never announced this information officially but according to the upload date on their server, 1 year is what you need to wait before getting the source code.Continue reading
Many developers started complaining that lldb debugger shipped with latest XCode update (12.4) no longer works when trying to debug your app. It can be difficult to diagnose the issue because you only see “Debugger started” and “Debugger finished” message in Qt Creator. By using View->Views->Debugger Log you can actually locate the problem and see the “Not allowed to attach to process” error message. Basically lldb now requires your app to be signed with the get-task-allow entitlement which allows other processes (like the debugger) to attach to your app.Continue reading
Windows XP and Windows Vista will no longer be supported in future versions of CrystalIDEA apps. Server versions of these legacy systems will be discontinued as well (Windows Server 2003/2008).
Below is the list of last versions of our apps (plus download links) that are still compatible with Windows XP and Vista:
Already issued licenses will continue to work normally on legacy systems. If you decide to upgrade your OS (e.g. Windows XP -> Windows 10) there’s no need to purchase a new license, simply uninstall the app from the old PC/OS and activate your license in the new OS.
If you purchase a new license and do really want to use it on a legacy OS, just just use one of download links above.
Some computers with different hardware may encounter BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) with KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED error code when trying to upgrade to Windows 10 version 2004 from previous versions (1909).Continue reading
We’ve recently noticed that dropbox.exe process appears in the list of apps that consume GPU resources:
Actually, quite many modern apps (e.g. Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox) may also use GPU, but this behaviour can be turned off though not in the case of Dropbox Client, no command line switch exist either. While for most people this shouldn’t be an issue, some advanced guys would want to have full control over their working environment and resources.Continue reading
We’ve received two reports from people running Windows who were infected by a Trojan (or some another kind of malware) by executing a file signed by our company (CrystalBit Solutions). More specifically this executable had the AnyToISO icon. How can this be possible?
Unfortunately, it is possible by using a common technique used by cybercriminals called - DLL Search Order Hijacking. In short:Continue reading
