PrimalScript crashes, apparently randomly

Post by sapien@leafgrove.com » Thu Aug 30, 2018 9:03 am

PrimalScript v7.4.116 080818_x64
On Windows 10 x64

Problem also occurred on v7.4.115 071418 x64 but not on v7.4.111 022418 x64

Randomly crashes.
Editing a VBS file as part of a PWS workspace file.
Sometimes crashes during editing, sometimes during run, not predictable, but always withing a few minutes of startup, extremely irritating.

Crash consists of a couple of seconds pause, then application closes. Any scripts still running at crash continue, but cannot output to the screen as they've lost their command line interface.

Does not appear to crash when no file open
Does not appear to crash when the vbs file is edited without opening the PWS workspace

Assistance is appreciated, thank you in advance.
James

I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you. There are some other people experiencing the same issues. We have been looking into this and it should be fixed in the next service release.

Not trying to shift blame here, but we are facing a number of issues from switching to Visual Studio 2017 and undocumented API changes. Which we should have caught earlier but, well, you likely know how things can go wrong.

So as we work diligently on making sure to address all issues, QA is busy finding new ones stemming from that switch. My best guess is, it will be another week.
