I have the following PyQGIS Standalone App which is working fine so far. One little problem is that if I zoom out to the MaxExtent(by scrolling the mousewheel) the app crashes python.exe so that the windows error report is startet. Has anyone else encountered this problem and knows how to prevent it?

The error message is:

Process finished with exit code -1073741819 (0xC0000005)

qgishome = r"C:/OSGeo4W64/apps/qgis"

app = QgsApplication([], True)
QgsApplication.setPrefixPath(qgishome, True)
if len(QgsProviderRegistry.instance().providerList()) == 0:
    raise RuntimeError('No data providers available.')

canvas = QgsMapCanvas()

layer = QgsVectorLayer("C:/daten/gwdat_31468.shp", "Grundwasserdaten", "ogr")
reg = QgsMapLayerRegistry.instance()



Here's the version of QGIS i used: enter image description here

  • i gave it a try and it also caused python.exe to freeze. I had a look at the windows event viewer: the Path of the module that causes the error is: C:\OSGEO4~1\bin\QtGui4.dll – Thomas B Jun 30 '15 at 19:12
