FIXED? v12.21: Error: Crash on right click in explorer panel

Post by vha » 10 Aug 2017 11:21

using v12.21 64bit in W10

As TextEd keeps on crashing when doing something in the explorer panel, I installed the debug version

It still crashes but doesn't create anything in %ProgramData%

So I opened it in Visual Studio and made it crash again.

This is it's crash report:

Exception thrown at 0x00000000102C002F in TextEd.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation executing location 0x00000000102C002F. occurred

HTH, vha

I've built a new version using a different exception catcher http://rj-texted.se/downloads/TextEd.7z.
It's better at catching exceptions but has some major issues. E.g. you should disable themes while running this version. And don't expect the program to recover after the exception catcher has displayed an error message... it may hang or crash horribly :(

It doesn't crash with the debug version but I will keep on trying to make it crash...

I installed the debug version and TextEd just crashed but it only sent a crash report to Microsoft...

It crashed when doing this:

- Select a file in the explorer panel
- CTRL-C, CTRL-V to duplicate the file
- Select the duplicated file
- SHIFT-DEL to delete it
- Message box is displayed asking for confirmation
- Wait a couple of seconds

--> crash

I still can't reproduce it, but I suspect it has something to do with auto refresh, which is triggered when the list view is receiving notifications from the file system or Shell.

In v12.30 I've added an option to turn off auto refresh (it actually unregister the list view from receiving shell notifications). You will have to refresh the content yourself :?

I hope that will solve the issue...

I finally found the issue. It only seems to be a problem in the 64 bit version and was caused by a variable pointing to nil inside the incremental search timer function (is activated when pressing a key, even shift or ctrl...).

Anyway, it's been fixed in next version (v12.30 beta 2).
