This usually hints at a problem with your graphics driver. Are you running this inside a Virtual Machine? If yes, try to enable 'Direct 3D rendering' in the VM options. Maybe also updating the DirectX version helps.

It's hard to guess what goes wrong for you in so many different places. Things you can try though:

- Launch Qt Creator with clean settings (you can do this temporarily by starting it from the command line with '-settingspath C:\tmp' argument, where C:\tmp should obviously be some existing directory)
- Launch Qt Creator without plugins that make use of QtQuick2 , and therefore DirectX: '-noload Welcome -noload QmlDesigner -noload QmlProfiler'

Also, is this a regression from older Qt Creator versions?

Hope this helps to narrow it down,
