How To Crash The Ide

Recommended Posts

Guest Joe

OK, how sad am i ?


It took me ages to figure out why SB IDE was hanging when i changed tasks... now i've figured out how to reproduce it (using WinXP pro sp2)



Open the IDE, and open a project that will successfully compile, and open the .c source file. Place the cursor on the 1st line of the source file.



Open another task on your computer (internet explorer works for me - i was browsing this forum)



Ensure you have the IDE window on top. (you do NOT have to have the windows maximised - mine were just about overlapping)



Ensure the OUTPUT window is open in the IDE.



Hit compile. You will see:




"C:\Program Files\SourceBoost\boostc.pic16.exe" -t PIC12F675 t1.c


BoostC Optimizing C Compiler Version 1.8 Alpha (for PIC16 architecture)

Here there is a small pause, as soon as you see the above text start to scroll up, and the word "Success" appears, change tasks to the other window you have open.

It is important that you do it AS SOON AS IT STARTS TO SCROLL UP.




Ok, wait a second or two, now go back to the IDE.... It should have crashed.

This bug has not been fixed in the latest release, IDE5.8 / BC1.9




I tried a dozen of times but couldn't reproduce it. Does anybody else see this crash?
