You said it crashes before main(). So what is calling QStandardPaths in a 
global constructor? Please share the backtrace of the crash.

Please remember that if you have static runtime, your global constructor are 
run intermixed with Qt's and the CRT's. If you had dynamic builds, all of Qt's 
constructors would have completed before the first of yours started and all of 
the CRT constructors would be finished before Qt's first. This intermixing of 
constructors is NOT tested and not supported. If things break because of 
static-runtime, you get to keep the pieces.
