Hi Jussi

I have been using 3.96r for about 2 weeks. I just noticed this bug, but it is very repeatable on my system ( win2K if it matters). This bug causes zeus to hang up. It becomes non-responsive. Windows reports zeus as not responding. If I attempt to force a close from task manager, I get a message that the program is being debugged and can't be closed

To recreate this condition:
1) open a cpp file from the project navigator
2) select a few lines of code which are commented out. below are the lines of code I have. I do a column select so only a few columns in these 3 rows are selected ( I don't think this last detail matters)

// my_states[OVERALL].init( NULL, NULL, NULL);
// my_states[OVERALL].make_transition(
// sm.initialize_appl_state_machine( my_states, NUM_STATES, this, OVERALL );

4) Right click the mouse. Zeus is now dead.

Hi Jack,

Unfortunately I can not replicate the bug :(

I suspect it is probably configuration related :?

Could you zip up you zConfig folder and send it to me as an e-mail attachment.

Also if you could send a simple file that shows the error and a screen shot of the problem that would be great ;)

Thanks Jussi

Hi Jack,

Unfortunately I was not able to replicate this bug :(

All I can suggest is renaming your current Zeus install directory and then running the latest Zeus installer found here:

If this fixes the problem, just copy over the zConfig folder from the old installation.

Cheers Jussi
