When I try to add a WFS-layer in QGIS, it crashed automatically. It generates a .dmp file, which I opened in Notepad++, but I don't know where to look for the actual cause of the crash.

Tried various WFS-links, all crash. Tried various options (change CRS, zooming to certain area, "only request features overlapping the view extent", using different titles of the same WFS-server... etc...

Some of the WFS links I've used:




Any ideas on what the problem might be?

Windows 10, 64-bit QGIS Desktop 2.18.8

  • I tried the first link provided and can't reproduce your error. The WFS loads just fine.: Windows 10 64bit QGIS 2.14.15. So is it an option to "downgrade" QGIS? – LaughU Jun 26 '17 at 8:15
  • Thanks for the "downgrade"-tip. I also have version 2.16 installed and it worked with this older version. – Iglias67 Jun 26 '17 at 13:31

This doesn't solve the problem itself but allows you to continue your work. It could be a bug.


  • If you can choose which version you use, try Version 2.14 or 2.16.
  • You can load the WFS with the functions QGIS provides.
  • It seems to be a bug in version 2.18.8
