Windows IDE crashing when typing

Post by amyren » Mon Jun 03, 2019 7:55 pm

Is this a known bug?

If I type the three following characters the ide.exe will crash every time:
c:/
This is Hollywood8, on windows 7, 32-bit.
I discovered this by accident when forgetting to put parenthesis before writing a file path. And the crash is immediately as I type them in the editor.
It actually seems that the editor will crash if typing any letter, followed by colon, followed by any character that is not a letter or a number.

Nice find! This bug was introduced in Hollywood 7.1 and it's quite critical because it could lead to the loss of code that hasn't been saved yet so I'm providing a hotfix for this one. You can grab it here: http://www.softwarefailure.de/tmp/idefix.zip

Thanks for reporting!
