Crash when accessing project settings

Post by nezos » Sun Jul 19, 2015 3:18 pm

Hey, i open an existing workspace with two projects, right click on the first project->settings and i get the screen attached.

Bad thing is that i can't access my project settings anymore.... I am running the latest weekly build and this happened while i was trying to fix a compilation problem where the Release configuration failed to build cause it wasn't able to find a DLL which was in place, although the Debug release was compiling correctly with the same settings (different folders).

Any ideas?

I have now idea how can such crash happen...
can you reproduce it with a simple project (my guess: no) or is it only happening in the current workspace?

If this is possible, please zip and and send me the project (its probably something locally with your settings)

Windows 8 / Codelite 8.0.4 (latest weekly build)

I can get this problem to occur as follows

1. Launch Codelite
2. For the *selected* project (i.e. the project whose name is in bold in the left hand panel), right click and choose "Settings"

The workaround seems to be to select a different project and then viewing the settings for the original project works fine.

Unfortunately I'm not able to upload a copy of the entire workspace, and I just tried creating a new workspace containing 3 new projects in it but haven't been able to re-create the problem at all.

I'm not aware of any local settings issues on my machine; the workspace can be built/ rebuilt without any problems.

Thanks, does not seem to crash on Linux. Will try on Windows later
EDIT:
Still can't make it crash on Windows (7).

- Launched codelite
- Right click on the active project->Settings - works...

I've since gone back over the recent weekly download versions of Codelite, and the only version that I've got that DOESN'T show this issue is the "CodeLite 8.0 [stable] released on May 10, 2015" (available on the download page); all the subsequent weekly builds that I've tried do show the issue. If there's anything I can send you (other than the workspace itself!) to help track this down, please let me know. Colin

Can you try and delete / rename %appdata%\codelite and see if it helps?

Does it happen with all workspaces or only with a particular workspace?
Does it happen with a new workspace?

Currently can't get it to go wrong at all (new workspace or existing workspace); however this is on Windows 7, whereas earlier I was testing on Windows 8.1.

I'll try and answer your "Does it happen with all workspaces or only with a particular workspace?" question when back on Windows 8.1 tomorrow.

I've attached a small workspace (3 projects) where the settings issue always seem to occur on my PC
