Have not been able to correlate the behaviour to anything specific yet, but I have recently had at least 3 instances where a GPF in the Clarion IDE deleted both the app file currently being worked upon along with the bpp file AND left me only with a 0KB sized ap~ file. Needless to say, restoring from backup is the only option.
Anyone else notice something similar? I did recently auto update to Windows 10 v2004 which does have other Clarion related oddities.
I rarely lose the .app, but have been copying it up after, and sometimes mid-session, to another folder and/or drive for years (around 20). Better safe than sorry.
The most often issue I have is the IDE freezing up, which usually happens on first use on random days… Your anti-virus and/or malware app may be the root cause so you might try excluding folders or .app and .bpp.
First use has not correlated here. Haven’t been keeping exact score, but I would say Windows 10 v2004 has brought an increase in the IDE GPF frequency - usually with an instant vanishing (ie no screen fade, no hanging cursor, no warning whatsoever).
