software crash on windows xp sp3
i'm trying to run the software on win xp machine.
no matter what i do (select [art, connect part, copy paste...) the software crash.
error in event log:
Faulting application fritzing.exe, version 0.0.0.0, faulting module qtcore4.dll, version 126.96.36.199, fault address 0x00001b33.
The first thing I would try is to download the software again. You will need to clear your cache or use a different browser, otherwise you will just get the same file again. Then delete your current Fritzing installation folder (I assume you installed Fritzing by opening up the zip folder that you downloaded, and copied the folder inside to some folder on your hard drive--if not, then that's the problem) and install again.
If that doesn't help, next time you run Fritzing, open up the task manager and see whether Fritzing is using up all your system resources.
Last, it might be nice to have a screen snap of Fritzing before it crashes to see whether it's even starting out normally. You can email that to info .at. fritzing .dot. org.
I get crash too....
I can easily reproduce the crash - wonter if you can "succeed" to reproduce the crash too...
2) Switch to PCB-mode (Ctrl-3)
3) Select CORE Bin & dra in jumper onto gray area.
4) Try to make jumper "vertical"/"rotate" jumper by dragging one end.
Crash... ("Unhandled exception at 0x013d57e0 in Fritzing.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x000000d8.")
(Running Windows 7,32bit & latest version of Fritzing)
You seem to be describing a different crash from the one that Pargit is experiencing. I am unable to replicate the crash you describe--do you have any other details, particularly about step 4. Are you also on a winxp machine?
Ok, Step 4...
Using jumpers (since I make one-sided PCBs) is practical, but...
To rotate a jumper, I usually crag the edge of the jumper.
I came to think of that I have 2 PCBtried to replicate the problem & I think it is related to having 2 PCBs...
I have now replicated the problem from "SCRATCH":
1) Start Fritzing,
2) Ctrl-3 (PCB-mode)
3) Copy & paste the PCB board, so you get 2.
4) Drag in a Jumper.
5) Try to rotate the jumper, by draging its edges.
I believe the problem is that a jumper is somehow related to one PCB, and if there are 2 PCBs there the program - crash...
I'm on a Windows 7 machine...
Thanks for the insight. But still unable to make the crash happen here.
This is a comment to prifire´s bug.
Fritzing does not support more than 1 PCB currently. I used also doubling PCBs to create a copy of my layout (multiple channel design)
But I had to delete the second PCB (after moving the copied layout to the initial PCB) as soon as possible, otherwise crashes are guranteed while proceeding to work on the layout.
As long Fritzing does not support more than one PCB, do not wonder about bugs in this area.
The next release of Fritzing will support multiple PCBs.
Yes, when I removed the second PCB, crashes stopped... Now I still use 2 PCBs, but in different files&windows...
