c++.idde - ResourceStudio32 - "abnormal program termination" openning a resource

reply Cesar Rabak <csrabak uol.com.br> writes:
When I attempt to open a resource (.RC) file using the DM
ResourceStudio32 v 1.1, time stamp 24/Apr/2001, I get an 'abnormal
program termination', be it started standalone or from the Resource-Open
option in the IDDE.

To ascertain the is healthy, the bug can be reproduced this way:

In the IDDE, create a new project (I used AppExpres):

Project->New, use AppExpress, press 'Finish' (it will proceed ;-)

In the AppExpress dialog, choose 'SDI', next.
If you do not change anything, you'll be about to create a project
called "SDIAPP", let's leave this.

Click next three times and finish the project.

Now, in the IDDE, go Resource->Open. A dialog box will show, and
SDIAPP.rc available. 

In my two different machines, if I attempt to open this file, an error
dialog box appears (no window name) and the error msg "Abnormal programm
termination"

Can you advise?

Others have mentioned this as well, I am one of them! My solution was to take the resource studio files from a SC++ 7.5 (7.21 works as well) and copy them over the ones in the DM folder. As far as I remember you should copy over all rs*.* files and perhaps a couple of smfc ones. I think I posted this some time ago, in fact this is one of my original comments to Walter: Just to bring you up to date, the resource editor doesn't work by just copying the rs32.exe and rs..32.dll's over. It also need the smfc30.dll and smfco30.dll. This was for the 7.21 version on 98SE, on W2000 that didn't work as well, I had more luck with the 7.5 ones. I also seem to remember that there were a couple of .asm sites that linked to a download of resource studio, but you're one your own there as I never had the need to remember them. Also, I remember a post from Jan confirming the problem and a mention that it was being looked into, so you have a couple of options available. Chris

Well, I have not 'confirmed' the problem yet I do believe it exists as people are reporting it. Anyways, I have started looking into it, but have not had the time, space and machine power to really check into this as I have 4 different version of the CD version running on my system... Keep bugging me about it however so I do get to it and fix this problem. Jan

Well, we hava at least two persons that posted in the list, we're short by one to become a crowd ;-)

OK. Meanwhile, can you check the feasibility to put in the web a patch zip for CD owners? I'm affraid not every one is also owner (or has access to) SC++ 7.2 - 7.5
 Keep bugging me about it however so I do get to it and fix this problem.
 

I'm bugging! Regards, Cesar

OK, Chris, I'll give a try! BTW, Walter and Jan, if this is a positive issue, may I humbly sugest an updadate to CD be posted, since I understand the ownership of a previous copy of Symantec is not a pre-requisite to enjoy the use of DM CD? Regards, Cesar

I have faced the same problem, but since it has been reported, I am waiting
patiently for the solution.

Meanwhile, I edit resources by hand! ;)
