Protobuf dependency missing for QGIS 3.14 (both network and standalone installer): installation aborts or QGIS doesn't start

Reported by: andreaerdna Owned by: osgeo4w-dev@…
Priority: critical Component: Installer
Version: Keywords:


It is not possible to install QGIS 3.14 (3.14.0-1) via the OSGeo4W network installer nor via the standalone installer (QGIS-OSGeo4W-3.14.0-1).

In the former case, during the installation procedure there is a crssync.exe system error about libprotobuf-lite.dll missing and the installation procedure aborts. In the latter, after the installation, QGIS doesn't start:

Error loading QGIS - Could not load qgis_app.dll

In this case, installing protobuf via OSGeo4W setup lead to correctly run QGIS.

I think this could be fixed adding protobuf among the dependencies of the qgis package, while now is missing:
