Debugger Crashes After Changing Watch Value


Recommended Posts

Load a PIC18F2520 project (I did not check other processors)

 

- Start de Debugger

 

- In the Register Bar:

For tmr2 select: Add Watchpoint to 'TMR2'

 

- In the Watch Bar:

Add: 'tmr2'

 

- Change the value of tmr2 in Register- or Watch bar and press enter

 

- Press F11 to start/continue debugging

 

Now the IDE.exe Crashes with an error: The memory could not be 'read'

... i do not think your supposed to do that ...

having never tried myself as most other simulators do not let you enter values,

usually just load a garbage value like 0xFF at the start of the program to see

if the register changes.

 

i take it you found your issue or is this in addition to your last post?

As they are both about timer2 for the same device.

Well, even if I am not supposed to do that (please tell me why!) the ide should not crash.

I am not sure what you mean by 'load a garbage value like 0xFF'.

It is a different bug report, and the other tmr2 problem is not solved. <{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Yes this does appear to be a reproducable problem. Its been added to the bugs list.

Srange , as i last posted, my IDE still does not crash using that sequence,

my only difference would be the chip, but the 18f4620 is the same series.

You are quite right. Regardless of what users do a program should never crash. We try to follow this rule in all our development and are interested to hear about any crashes of our products.

Pavel
