Bringing VS to front always opens a file...

(1/3) > >>

jporkkahtc:
This is a new thing - it first happened to me a few days ago, but today it is happening again, but with a different file.

Slickedit is running.
From a separate CMD window, I type "vs"
Normally this just brings Slickedit to front.

Now, it also opens a specific file (C:\src\file.bat).

From the cmd prompt, if I do

--- Code: ---vs OtherFile.txt

--- End code ---
Slick behaves as expected, but then

--- Code: ---vs

--- End code ---
slick again opens (or makes active) C:\src\file.bat


Earlier I did have a 2nd instance of Slickedit open (via vs +new), but currently I have only the original instance open.

Clark:
Did you set the "VSLICK" environment variable? This is used to add arguments to every invocation.

jporkkahtc:
No, and restarting Slickedit fixes the problem.
Seems like slick is somehow hanging on to some state it shouldn't.

Clark:
Tricky issue. Make sure there isn’t an extra SlickEdit process running. Long shot guess.

jporkkahtc:
Happening again right now.
Only one slick process open.
I don't think I've recently had a 2nd slick (via vs -new).
Anything I can do to help diagnose?
