Topic: fwin.exe stops working - Registered copy of 1.33 on Windows 7 64bit
Yesterday I updated to version 1.33 from 1.32. The software loads but when a project clean or build is initiated the software crashes and windows reports "fwin.exe has stopped working".
This is a registered copy of Simply Fortran running on Windows 7 64-bit Professional. However, if I make it an unregistered copy by deleting the Registry entry associated with registering then all is well in the garden (i.e. the software works).
For information: I have tried several times to install the 1.33 software.
The first time I didn't uninstall version 1.32 before installing 1.33. Problem present.
The second time I uninstalled the software, deleted the Simply Fortran folder in C:\Programs Files (x86) and then re-installed. Problem still present.
The third time I uninstalled 1.33 and re-installed 1.33. Problem still present.
The fourth time (or was it the fifth,sixth,... I've tried so many things) I uninstalled 1.33, deleted the registry entries associated with the software setup and re-installed twice (after the first install it didn't appear so I tried again). The software was good and I cleaned, built and ran the application. Great "it works" I thought, so I entered the registration info and it still cleaned etc. until I restarted the software, when the problem returned. So I deleted the Simply Fortran registration Registry entry and the problem disappeared but now I have an unregistered copy!!!!!
Sorry to make this such a long post but I'm trying to provide as much diagnostic info as possible. The one thing I haven't tried is going back to 1.32 which reminds me of the minor problem I was hoping 1.33 would fix but they should be the subject of another post.
Anybody reading this post should not think Simply Fortran is buggy. I have been very impressed with it having used it on and off for a year.
