SlickEdit 2013 (v18.0.1.2 64-bit)
Win 7 Enterprise 64-bit


This started today (reboot after weekend) so I don't know what's going on.

It pops up a little window with "Error Creating Directory Entry".

This happens in these situations:

1. Starting Slick Edit (sometimes)
2. Searching big directories recursively (which makes the search "stuck" somewhere.)

If I click Ok, the search continues, but I usually encounter 5-6 of these stuck popups.

I tried deleting everything in My Slickedit Config under Documents.  Slick Edit is reset to factory more or less (you would know this; I don't) and it wants to drive me through a setup wizard.

Anyway, whatever the problem is, it isn't in that Documents folder.

Also, I have no *.stu files, which is the only other reference I can find using Google, on this site.  So both threads I can find, one from 2006, and one from 2014, do not have a working solution (anymore.)

Here's a little more info on the search part of it anyway.

Sometimes it gets stuck on a file and puts up that popup.  Click Ok, pops up again, click Ok again, and then the search window says:

Failed to open:  (some path)\some file.c or .h (which is the filter I'm using)

However, Slick Edit can indeed open those files.  You can copy the path and open it and boom, open in Slick Edit.  Indeed, even if the file is already open in Slick Edit, it happens again.

You should put an AI button on that popup with the text we can click:  "Are you sure you can't open it?  It's open right there behind you inside of you!" :) :) :)
