• Occasional crashing when working with MsgBase

    From Nightfox@VERT/DIGDIST to Digital Man on Sunday, November 10, 2013 11:13:58
    Hi DM,

    Is there any potential risk of working with the message base (using the MsgBase class) in JavaScript at the same time Synchronet changes the message base (for example, when new messages come into a networked sub-board)? I'm asking because I have a message lister/reader script that I've written in JavaScript, and occasionally I've seen Synchronet crash when I'm using it - particularly, when I select a message to read or reply to. It doesn't happen consistently, but my current guess is that it might crash when new messages come into the sub-board or message group that I'm browsing. It seems to be crashing more frequently with the recent 3.16 builds (I'm currently using 3.16 for Win32 built on November 3rd).

    Hi DM,

    There's not supposed to be.

    I'm asking because I have a message lister/reader script that
    I've written in JavaScript, and occasionally I've seen Synchronet crash
    when I'm using it - particularly, when I select a message to read or reply to. It doesn't happen consistently, but my current guess is that it might crash when new messages come into the sub-board or message group that I'm browsing. It seems to be crashing more frequently with the recent 3.16 builds (I'm currently using 3.16 for Win32 built on November 3rd).

    If you could run a debug build and provide a call stack trace, that would be very helpful (and likely lead to the problem being quickly resolved).

    would be very helpful (and likely lead to the problem being quickly resolved).

    I downloaded the 3rdp and src directories from CVS and loaded sbbs3.sln (in src\sbbs3) in Visual Studio 2010. I tried building the solution in debug mode, but I got a link error, in the sbbsecho project:
    32 error LNK1104: cannot open file '.\msvc.win32.debug\sbbsecho\sbbsecho.map'

    Any tips?

    hmm, did it build the file?
    a map is generated on a build.

    There is a sbbsecho.map in my msvc.win32.debug\sbbsecho directory after building, but it has a size of 0.. So it appears that it's being generated, but it's empty.

    if it's zero it might have been started but the program didnt compile fully. check to see if you have a new exe in the build dir.
    and you can try to build that project alone, I think it is a .vcxproj file for it. I use msvc10 express and the whole thing builds. then I just build what I need. I think in a dos window it's like msbuild xxx.vcxproj

    Try running the build.bat instead maybe? I do see that error sometimes and usually just a second build will successfully create the .map file. It looks like an MSVC10 bug to me.

    That seems to have worked. Thanks for the tip.
