QT 7.4.x for Windows crashes Rev, among other applications as well. Even
just loading QT can make the app unstable. QT 7.5 fixes the problem, so
the easiest solution is just to upgrade QT. Alternately, Windows users
with "bad" versions of QT can go into the QT Control Panel Applet and
choose "Safe mode (GDI only)" which also fixes the problem for most people.
This came up in the support queue and it took us a while to figure out
what was going on, but the above 2 solutions have worked for most people
