Errors/Program Termination on Save
« on: July 01, 2014, 02:01:00 PM »
More often than not, I get the attached error whenever I add a new node and then save the file... Any ideas?snap0859.jpg

What operating system?
Did you run the installer or are you using portable version?
If portable version or if you custimized save location, is the file being saved in a directory you have normal write access to?
Did you copy settings from one computer to another?

So I'm running Windows 8.1 (winver shows 6.3 (Build 9600)).  I do have the portable version installed pointing to a different directory that I have r/w access to.  It is a directory that is inside of my Google Drive directory.  This is a new installation, and not a copy

My ConfigDir.ini contains:

PORTABLE=TRUE
CONFIGDIR = .

Thanks... André

can you check if this might be causing the problem: "It is a directory that is inside of my Google Drive directory"
try putting it somewhere more traditional and see if it fixes the problem.. if so i can try to diagnose the issue.

So I moved the directory structure and got the same results -I don't get the error all the time, but I get it periodically... Typically when adding/deleting a node (vs. editing a label, or something more impactful).

I first reported this type of error some time back (see here). It still happens on a regular basis running under Windows XP (using the full version and not the portable one).

What the? This happens to you too dluby?  Can you shed more light on what triggers it?  Can anyone reliably reproduce the error with a specific set of actions? If it can be reproduced it can be fixed.

Sorry but I can't find the steps to reproduce it. It only seems to happen after a few days of not restarting my PC (hibernation) and when I make a change to my settings it bombs out.  As the problem takes days to reproduce it's something I can't help you with.

So I tried to reproduce, but can't with any consistency - but it seems to be more common after it has been running for a while... If I restart and then make changes - no problems.  But if after a day or 2, I make similar changes, then it crashes - with the error I posted earlier.  Would posting a configuration file help?
