I put a breakpoint in FbEdit on the first line of code. I click on Debug/Run. FbEdit displays the first line, it highlights the line and about 5 seconds later the hourglass cursor disappears and I can enter commands.
I then click on Debug/Stop (no execution of my code yet). I immediately get a Vista window indicating the program has stopped working. I do not get FbEdit's window asking if I want to terminate the program.
I got to this point tracking backwards over the last week an intermittent error that causes the program to work properly sometimes and others to terminate suddenly with the Vista error message at different points of execution.
main program starts
Code: Select all
screen 20,32 ' Breakpoint on this line
Running release version of FreeBasic (Aug 12, 2010)
Running 188.8.131.52c of FbEdit.
Running last updated version of Windows Vista
Running GLADE 3.6.7
Running lastest GTK+tobac 2.22.4
I tried using GBD directly. When I ask it to run executable, it produces several cannot find dll messages (no names just addresses) and goes into limbo and never gives me another prompt. The Screen command as the first line does not ever produce a new window, so I suspect that it does not get executed. I do not know if this is important or just ignorance on my part about using GDB.
Any suggestions from anyone on how to proceed? At this point I would greatly appreciate anything.
