Exception Error (EAccessViolation)
« on: January 22, 2010, 06:51:21 PM »
I am getting the following error message when I try to run FARR:

Find+Run Robot Encountered an exception error (EAccessViolation). Please report to mouser@donationcoder.com

I uninstalled and reinstalled the program but I still get the same error. Any advice?

Thank you.

I was getting the EAccessViolation error at one time too, but it was only while accessing the KlipKeeper plugin. The solution to that problem is discussed in http://www.donationc....msg166839#msg166839

Here is Mouser's solution to the problem and ecaradec's website for Fscript:

http://e.craft.free.fr/farr/FScript/

Hope this works for you.

The new fscript.dll works!!!

note to others who try it:
1. grab the latest fscript.dll from ecaradec's page (as of today it's fscript.1.17.dll)
2. rename it to fscript.dll
3. exit farr
4. replace any copies of fscript.dll in your farr plugins subdirectories with this new one.
(if you have multiple fscript-based plugins installed, there may be more than one copy of the dll! dont leave any files like fscript_bakup.dll or fscript.dllbackup in the directories or those dll's might get loaded)
5. restart farr

brilliant work emmanuel!

Thanks omadeon, but I don't use a plugin called KlipKeeper and I don't have a file called fscript.dll on my computer.

What operating system are you using? Does the error happen at startup? Did the program ever work for you and is just now acting up, or is this the first time you've tried to use it?

Thanks for the quick response mouser! Windows Vista, the program has worked fine in the past and the error occurs when I first try to open FARR.

Everyone must be stumped  :( I tried uninstalling/reinstalling again with the same result. Guess I'm out of business.

one thing you could do is
  • exit FARR
  • find the FindAndRunRobot.ini file (check in both the FARR find and run robot directory and in the DonationCoder subdir of your MyDocuments folder), and rename/move it.
  • retstart FARR

this file is not deleted on uninstall, and so if something is wrong with it, it could cause your problem.
dont delete it, because if it is the cause of your problem i want to see it!

That did it mouser! Let me know what you would like me to do with the old .ini file.

Thank you!

Hello Everybody! Found this very promising piece of software, so I tried to test it.
But I only get this error messages when I start to type into the search field: FARR ERROR 1 and after that this message: FARR ERROR MESSAGE 2

Tried to delete the ini file mentioned the post above, but I don´t have such file...

WIN XP SP3, no plugins fresh FARR install!

Any suggestions?

whoa that is very strange.. i've never heard of such an error with a fresh clean farr install..

did you run the installer or unpack it manually and run it portably?

it only happens when you start to type?

can you try to experiment a little more and see if there is some pattern to what you type that might cause it.. i wonder if there is some item that farr is trying to display that is causing this problem.  i might send you a special debug version to try if you can get this to reliably occur.

This is a REALLY nasty error....
First, it got a  better. I have done nothing, but sometimes it works. Other times it crashes with same error but no pattern recognizable.... :-(
But the opera thing is repeatable. BUT ONLY after the first start of FARR when opera is the first search.
I don´t know if it is economic to look for the cause, because my XP installation is quite old and I use a lot of shell tools.
I use executor too, could this be a problem? FARR is a candidate to replace executor because of it´s even more mightier functionality :-)
I will try to uninstall and use the non installer version.

If you have a debug Version I would like to help finding the error! But have a lot to work to do currently, so there could be delays....

Greetings, Frank!
