!! Attention all Windows testers with the Options Window crash !!
So far we have not been able to reproduce this bug in a controlled environment
, so we need your help in pinning down what's happening.
There is an opencpn.exe available in http://journeyman.se/opencpn/opencpn.zip
which has a first set of tracing printouts, it would be great if you could try this one, and if it crashes post the last lines of your logfile.
To test it: Your 3.1.914 installation
directory is protected by UAC, so you should do the following:
- Download and unzip the above linked file in your user directory or desktop
- Navigate to your 3.1.914 installation and rename the opencpn.exe to opencpn.orig.
- Copy the unzipped opencpn.exe from your user directory into the 3.1.914 installation directory.
Run it, open the Options window, hope it crashes and post the log back here.
If it doesn't crash at this point I would also like to hear that.
We might have to do this a couple of times before finding the exact problem spot.
The log lines I am looking for will be something like below, what is important is where in this sequence the crash happens.
