IDE Crashes Randomly During Routine Typing

Post by rmgregory243 »

When performing routine typing, the IDE will _frequently_ crash with the following message
Error: Invalid memory access
IDE Build on 10/11/2023 [10:32] by Fred
Branch: v6.03 Revision 11bb0239e75e

I notice no pattern in the behavior: the error may also arise spontaneously, when no typing is in progress and the IDE is effectively idle. This is something relatively new -- I did not notice the behavior prior to the recent LTS release (and likely would have done so).

The operating system is Windows 11 Pro 22H2 (build 22621.2715) with Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22677.1000.0, running on an Intel Core i7-8700K CPU @ 3.70GHz with 32.0 GB (31.8 GB usable) RAM. The primary display adapter is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X (28593 MB video RAM; 1920x1080, 60Hz;) and the secondary display adapter is an Intel(R) UHD Graphics 630.

that's odd, no one else seems to be having any issues.
maybe its a problem with code history or maybe it was a dodgy windows update

take a look in preferences under session history make a copy delete the original and see if the problem goes away

I do. Its not frequent, happened maybe 3 times. (Started with 6.03 update, I'm on Win7)

Helpful would be the rip address and the ASM instruction where the invalid memory access happened and also the registers and the stack.

The current IDE has an useless error handler.
Either remove that or compile with OnError support.
