Net Express Crashing

Jump to solution

Hi

I have a debugbreak in code, and when I opt to invoke the debugger, Net Express hangs and crashes out.

Any help will be appreciated.

You should report this problem via Supportline but as I am sure you are aware Net Express has not been certified for use under Windows 10. We do not anticipate any problems but if you do run into something like described here it needs to be reported so we can look into it.

For developing on operating systems higher than Windows 7, Visual COBOL is the product you should be using as it has been tested and certified on all newer platforms.

I have to also mention that the OP (Original Poster) is using wrap pack 12 and running Windows 10.

When running the application the CBL_DEBUGBREAK is either totally ignored or sometimes prompts. When it prompts NetExpress loads and then crashes.

If you load NetExpress and set wait for animation then this works every time (This is what the OP is using as a work around).

We have also tried deleting the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Micro Focus\NetExpress registry key. (These get recreated and you'd have to redo your preferences) We have found something gets corrupt and NetExpress would fail with a 114 error.

Additionally we also deleted the NetExpress workspace file as this sometimes becomes corrupt.

Uninstalling, reinstalling or repairing NetExpress results in the same problem  

In the past when this has occurred on other developers machines it becomes a total machine reload a very costly exercise in terms of time.
