Broken editor for Windows
« on: September 04, 2007, 03:39:34 pm »
Open a file by clicking on it in cvs (set it up so slickedit is launched)
Mod the file
Try to save it (it fails with Path Not Found)
Do a File Save As
Don't change the filename, just hit Enter
"File exists, do you want to overwrite it?"
Call Techsupport
Get an answering machine
Scream about the worsening quality of the editor and the failure of the company to actually test the piece of junk they are putting out.
Lose mind
Realize that the editor is doomed

=== The word C R A P is translated by this forum into the word fabulous  ===
Guess we know why they think their editor is so fabulous, underneath it really is a pile of C R A P

What cvs client are you using to launch SlickEdit?

Why are the new release update notes not posted somewhere on this site?  Since the download is an MSI file, there appears to be no way to get the readme without installing the update.

What about downloading 'readme.txt' attached to the original (announcement) posting ;)

Mark:

I was unable to reproduce this.  I downloaded WinCvs 2.0.2.4 Build 4 from SourceForge, and tried it with a "standard" SlickEdit 2007 12.0.3.  I tried it several ways, and it always worked.

It sounds like this worked for you in previous versions, correct?

Does this happen with every file you tried, or does it seem to be limited to any group of files?
