Save As and Open Crash

Postby pdimick » Fri Oct 26, 2012 8:17 pm

I am running Qcad 3.0.0 on Windows 7 Home Premiun SP1 -- 32 bit

When trying to open or save files "Not Responding" error is displayed and I must force a shut down. Are there any known issuses.

Thanks,

Hi pdimick and welcome

A few questions

Are these imported large files from another CAD program or does this happen when for example you create a draft yourself in QCAD?

If its not too confidential are you able to attach a file for testing?

Hi Clive,

Glad to be onboard...Thanks.

It happens when I create a simple draft.

It is happening in two instances:

1. I cannot open a file in the "Open File" option. I can only open by clicking on a desktop icon or from recent items, for exapmple.

2. I cannot save a file in the "Save As" option

Both instances cause the system to to go into a "Not Respond" mode and I am forced to shut down Qcad.

I am attaching a sample draft

Best Regards,

pdimick:

- Does the file dialog show at all or does the crash occur before that?
- Do you have any external drives attached or network shares enabled?
I can imagine that an external drive or network share might stall the file dialog while trying to mount or connect.
This should not cause a crash though. Maybe you can also try to let it hang once for a while to see if the dialog is shown eventually.

Thanks for any additional information you can provide.
