> The key F1 produce an error message
I suppose you speak about the key in Wedit that is supposed to open
the HELP window.
I have found the same problem when installing the LCC version dated
02/02/2011 on my PC with XP SP1.
I thought this problem was specific to me, so I looked where the
problem comes from, and I found from where it comes and I tried to
report it to Jacob Navia (see below).
Meanwhile I have corrected it into my wedit.exe binary code, and now I
am running ok.
This is the bug report I sent somewhere last year to the mail address
ja...@jacob.remcomp.fr but I never had any answer :
/ Dear Jacob, or whom it may concern, I am proud to submit
you a correction for a bug in lcc.
/ The bug is as follows : on my computer, calling the menu
HELP->'WIN32API Help' produces a crash.
/ The reason for this is that for any reason the CLSID for
"DExplore.AppObj" cannot be found on my computer.
/ To correct for this problem in WEdit , do like following :
+ look in the code of WEdit for the procedure that
calls CLSIDFromProgID (probably named 'GetCLSID' for example)
+ go back one level to the procedure that called
+ in this procedure, look at the nesting of the
/ if 'GetCLSID' returns 0 you should leave the procedure,
and not jump to the sequence of calls to SysFreeString, because this
leads to a call to an invalid pointer because it is null.
/ As usual I am not sure you may read this message, so if
you do, please reply me to my mail address. Best regards, Lucien
I think I have found now on this workgroup the way to resubmit this
bug report, hope there will be a connexion now.
Note that if I take the time to submit a bug report that is so
comprehensive (to my mind !) and to insist in submitting it, it is not
for my personal need, because as I said I overcame the problem.
if I insist in submitting this, it is as a sign of my personal respect
with regard to the work done by Jacob, which I consider so good that I
want this to be my little "thanks" and contribution to its author.
Johan, don't be stopped by your first impression ; Besides a few bugs
it works perfectly even for bigger applications. It is really a good
program to learn, and you will not be disappointed at the end.
Keep going further, Lucien.
