Crash at start up.
« on: July 06, 2009, 07:03:32 pm »
Both 1.32 beta builds, 212 and 224, both crash at launch on every machine I've tired so far. XP, Vista and Vista x64. I've installed the latest VC++ 2008 runtimes and .NET packages. I can't use 1.31 cause the "Copy Rest All" function does not work.

224 works better, it continues to run after the crash (see attached).

I would submit this to the bug tracker, but since that last redesign, SF won't let me log in and it cannot find my email address :S

Helo,
It seems that this crash repeats itself between svn212 and svn224. I hoped that this was a problem of incompatible mfc libraries (another bug, fixed in 224). It seems however that it is not. I'll try to investigate it when some time will be available (posting it on sf.net will certainly help :) ).

Regards,
Ixen

I've since tried getting it to run on a few more machines since, but even on fresh installs of XP are no go.

I compile it from trunk and got the same error. VS2008sp1. Tired with boost 1.35 and 1.38.

SF.net still isn't likely me. Looks like my account was partly deleted. I can't get support cause I can't log in. Won't accept my email address because it's "in use", so can't sign up again. SF has been going down hill since that first javascript nightmare redesign.

As a temporary workaround you could disable automatic checking for updates which seems to trigger the behaviour (in configuration file you have to change the "Check for updates at startup" to 0. Or if it does not exist - you have to manually add the entry. See below for the details:
Code: [Select]
[Program]
Check for updates at startup=0

Where is this file located? On my profile there is only the Dumps and Tasks folder, and ch.log, but no config file.

Thanks

It should be where the log file is as fas as I remember. If it was not created - create it yourself and copy the entries from my previous post into it.
