Recently had to uninstall MS KB4519976 and KB4520003 from our Windows 7 computers as it really mucked up the C5 and C6 IDE. It removed all the icons from all the buttons; menu, toolboxes, everyone, everywhere.
Has anyone else experienced this issue and, aside from uninstalling the updates, been able to resolve it?
Clarion 6 and earlier IDE is 16 bit. Expect it to fall over more and more as time passes. As fewer and fewer 16 bit programs exist in the world you can expect 16 bit support to erode, and ultimately disappear.
I recommend you use the 32 bit Clarion [IDE], with the Clarion 6 templates, classes and runtimes if you prefer.
I’d recommend you create a virtual machine with a 32Bit copy of Windows and use that to do your Clarion C55 to Clarion 6 conversion.
I have a VirtualBox VM with Windows XP (SP 3) on it to do Clarion 6 and ReportWriter work
If you must use Windows 10 in the VM then uninstall the offending updates and then use the VM with the Network set to ‘Host Only Adapter’ - that will mean the VM has access to the host machine (via shared folders) but no internet access (so no pesky updates)
I have this issue as well some weeks before and argued that it could come from an windows update. I work with a W7 32Bit VM (VirtualBox) and I have Clarion 6.2 and the system into different virtual disks (C: for Windows and D: for Clarion). So I decide to take over the last backup from the virtual system disk and the problem has gone. Today the update KB4519976 has been installed again and the issue poped up again. I removed this update and the issue was gone. Since I turned over to C10 and next to C11 I don’t bother with this. I will disable automatic updates and install them controlled. Perhaps this issue will be fixed with a future update.
