im quite upset atm, i had written an asm basecode with GUI & error handling.
the whole code was on about 300 lines. now, i wanted to test its limits and play a little with it so i made a huge DB (about 300 letters) which where to be shown in a messagebox.

so i made an invoke and continues to compile it, suddenly i got that nasty "windows has encountered an error" window and the IDE closed.

when i then rebooted the IDE and tried loading my file, the whole file had been wiped and there was NO code inside the file.

it seems that when compiling it doesnt finish the file handling until the compile has been completed, this is a big misstake since if the IDE crashes
before the compile is completed the whole code is wasted.

anyways, i just thought that i should share this info so that it does not happend to anyone else Sad

oh, and btw... dunno if this has anything to do with the error but the DB did contain some ,13, to make new lines...

please fix the IDE so that this does not happen to other coders, its really frustrating..

Regards, forsaken.

It has to be related to the recent development beign done on the IDE - see
http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=3810

Sorry, I should have released the development versions as a separate downloads, since the IDE that originally came with fasm 1.64 (version 0.92.6 if I recall correctly) was already very stable. The 0.92.7 and 0.92.8 were quick releases as the new feature was developed, and since this feature affected almost all of the internal mechanisms of the editor, those hasty releases were very buggy. The 0.92.9 seems to be stable again, though still needs to be tested.

OK, I'm uploading the new version with the fix for this. I could restore the package to have the 0.92.6, but I prefer to do it this way to force the new version to be tested until it becomes stable, too. (Thanks for the useful report, btw). This is still 0.9x.x, which means it's still not final one, and thus I cannot guarantee it will be always stable - so frequent backups are highly recommended (well, they are always recommended anyway). However I'm trying to fix any reported problems as soon as possible.
