2 problems I encounter(ed) repeatedly both on a Win2K3-R2 server, and on my Win7-64 workstation, using LC community versions from the 6.* line (up to 6.7.1):
- When installing a new version, it can happen (i.e. it doesn't happen every time!) that the new version isn't registered properly. Means, if you double-click a stack the old IDE will start.
Uninstalling anything, or only the old versions, will not always help. Not once I ended with LC not registered anymore at all (i.e. double-clicking a stack will bring up a window asking what program to use to open this file ...).
Usually manually editing the registry is required to cure this. That's no fun.
- Sometimes the dictionary freezes LC. Completely freezes it - needs to be shut down via task manager, and all unsaved work is gone. Horror!
I work around by using "BvG Doku 2", but that's not how it should be.
While writing this, I have a dictionary open (6.7.1) and do all kinds of searches - and it works like a charm. But I bet, as soon as I'll do some serious coding, and have 2 hours worth of unsaved code, it'll strike again :/
And I'm installing 6.7.1 now on my server (had 6.7.0 still). Let's check: For sure it works flawlessly - you cannot beat Murphy ...
Maybe some other ppl can add some info to this? Because both are annoying things that shouldn't happen, IMHO. Nothing game-breaking, but very annoying.
Sorry, I cannot find a way to reproduce. Maybe YOU are the one that can?
I hope that stuff like this is what this "Bug Triage" forum is meant for, and that posting this here is correct.
Have a good time!
PS: Might be that the installer problem is solved already, but I didn't find any info in the release notes ...
