Symptoms

The application starts and then crashes or doesn’t start at all when Squish attempts to start it. After a while Squish times out and adds an error message like the one shown below to the “Test Results” view in the Squish IDE:

RuntimeError: startApplication() failed

See “Application ‘…’ couldn’t be started. Starting application timed out after …” (Qt) for more information.
