Dev: Win 10 Runtime Win 7 - Problem with find the text of me in field

Post by forfar1956 » Wed Jul 04, 2018 7:15 am

Hallo,
I'm writing my first LiveCode program and have the following situation...

Developed on Windows 10 - use find the text of me in field to search contents of List Box

Works fine in development environment
Works fine in Standalone on same Windows 10 PC

....Move standalone to Windows 7

Search does not work any more. List Box does not highlight search terms as under Windows 10.

Are there known problems?

Do I have to generate the Standalone on the Windows version I am running the Livecode program on?
That means generate the Standalone under Windows 7?

Thanks

A standalone built on one machine should run on any other machine with a compatible OS.

Are you sure the problem isn't cosmetic? Maybe the search works but the lines just aren't hiliting correctly.

Or could it be the case that the stack uses a hardcoded filename that makes sense only on the Windows 10 machine?

Best,
Panos

It would help if we could see the handler script.
