That looks… “interesting”. 
So your code is Qt 5.9.5 based?
We are currently building against Qt 5.10.1 
I guess I’ll need to figure out if this works against Qt 5.10.1 as well or if we are better off downgrading overall.
Not sure if I want to tackle this for Subsurface 4.8.3 - that sounds like I might be breaking way too many things.

And on the off chance that this does sound even the least bit critical (because I have been told by others today that I’m a bit grumpy): I am super happy with your progress there. Lack of BLE support on Windows was a huge concern for me and this is awesome. We may not get this for 4.8.3, but we should be able to get “something” out very soon.
