No, at least not a QNX without any service patches etc installed. But neither QNX 6.5 nor Qt 4.8 is supported here anymore, so don't expect any help here.

As Thiago said. I'd try to upgrade to QNX 6.6 and Qt 5.9.

Thiago, that's what we're always doing. Nobody I know of advises customers to use old and unsupported versions of Qt. 

But those companies you mention do try to help customers find a solution to their problem. The (highly) preferred option is of course to get the customer upgraded to something that's officially supported.
