Suppress Crash Report Caused by CEF External - Mac

Post by Steve Collins » Thu Mar 24, 2016 6:15 am

Is there a way to suppress a crash report caused by a LiveCode standalone on Mac? I need to deliver a standalone that uses revBrowserCef and I am getting the recently reported and confirmed crash that occurs occasionally when closing a stack that used revBrowserCef. (Bug report: http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=17059)

The crash occurs after quitting, so causes no problems with performance. But an application that generates a crash report upon closing is unprofessional, so I want to hide it. I'm figuring a fix for it will come after I deliver.

Thanks,
Steve

The CEF browser has been dropped from LC8 because of lack of support in the thirdparty library. I'm not sure whether that has gotten merged into the LC6 builds yet. But I think if you revert to the older browser (use revBrowserOpen rather than revBrowserOpenCEF) that should fix your current problem.

Yikes! I noticed that about LC 8 too and hope there will be a reliable alternative. Only revBrowserCEF can play WebM videos on Windows and Mac with LC. There is no one video format that I found that runs in revBrowser on both Windows and Mac, except WebM.

The widget browser of livecode 9 uses Chrome 47.
