 FM Developer Tool 5.5 crashing under Jaguar
Hello everyone,

I had not used the Developer Tool (5.5) for a while, but now I have to
release a cross-platform runtime solution. I found that on MacOS X
(10.2) the DevTool crashes while creating the application. The files
are converted by then.
Updating to version 5.5.2 did not solve the problem.
It happens under MacOS X 10.2 and 10.2.1.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Henk

This is a known Bug.  DevTool 5.5 and 5.5.2 are not certified for Jaguar
(In theory it should not have mattered.)

A workaround is to open the Add File or Select Dest Folder dialogs (you
can cancel right out of them, you don't need to select anything), and
then proceed, and the crash seems to not appear.

Hope this helps!

Hello Dave,

I managed after two tries.
Amazing!

Thank you,

Henk

Does this fix it forever or do you have to do this every time you bind>
What about if you use the Auto = 1 feature? i.e. a saved document to
generate the runtime?

I found this auto=1 feature unusable, because custom menu options for
About, Help en Script menus were not set right during auto executions.
I can't answer your first question. I don't mind to do this workaround
all the time, since it's not routine business. I'm using DevTool a
couple of times at the end of a developing process. Next time I might
have FM Dev6.

Regards, Henk

Unfortunately, no and yes.  Everytime you bind, you should display one
of those dialogs.

Henk's experience aside, Auto=1 (in the options file) should normally
work identically to a manual session.  The problem is that it will work
like a manual session where you didn't use the dialogs.

To avoid the crash, you _must_ display one of those dialogs during the
session, otherwise the crash always seems to occur.

Hope this helps!

I would like to report, that in spite of my enthousiast reaction in
one of my former posts, the DevTool is still crashing. The tip of
David worked only once on my computer! After that I tested the
solution, found some bugs, fixed them and tried to rebind them over
and over on different machines, with no luck.

I'm now seriously considerating purchasing FM Developer 6.

Will this problem then be fixed?

Thanks in advance for your advice,

Henk

Hi Henk!,

No, FM6 went to the presses before this was discovered and fixed.   A
fix should be forthcoming.

Do you have any specific information about the failure of the tip to
work?  If you want, we can discuss this digression back channel.

Thanks!
-Dave
