minimap -> Terminated process
« on: August 08, 2018, 11:29:53 pm »
While dragging the minimap around (zoomed in a lot, and using soft wrap), Slickedit process was terminated suddenly - no warning, no error dialogs, just poof.

A dump for this would be really helpful.

I haven't been able to reproduce this.  Can you give any more information?  How many zoomins?  What type of file.  Softwrap is on, but is it softwrapping whole pages or just a "regular" amount of lines?

Sorry, I haven't been able to repro.

No dump because I didn't get any sort of crash/JIT dialog - it just terminated abruptly.
I ran Slick all day yesterday under debugger control just in case, but no crashing

Thanks for trying to get us a dump.

WRT JIT Debugging on Windows:
So, even thought I enabled JIT in Visual Studio, native application crashes where just silently terminating.
I don't know in what world this makes sense - crazy.

I found: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/Debug/configuring-automatic-debugging
Creating an string key Auto == "1" under *both*
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AeDebug
HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AeDebug
is necessary.

Now, when foo.exe crashes, I get the nice dialog that lets me debug the crashed process.

I have no idea why this is needed now, seems like there used to always be a dialog on process crashes.

It doesn't help any, but I saw this once after installing a Visual Studio beta (or alpha?) with warnings about this sort of thing.  It's kind of strange when you're still typing.
