Restore Desktop Icon Layout Crash

Post by StanL »

XMBC Version: 2.19.1
Windows Version: Win7 x64
Mouse Information (brand/model): Logitech MX500
Relevant Computer Information (CPU, RAM etc): AMD A8-7600, 8GB
Did the problem occur after an upgrade of XMBC? (If so, from what version?): Yes. Appears to start with 2.19. 2.18.8 is fine.
Did the problem occur after a Windows update/upgrade? (If so, from what version?): No
How long have you used XMBC?: About 4-5 years.
What language and keyboard layout do you use in Windows?: English QWERTY

Clear description of the problem - try and include as much information as possible, including what button and mappings you are having problems with (if applicable).: I was hesitant to report this because I had a PC failure 9 months ago and was running on a jerry rigged system for quite a while.

But on that system, which was Win7 x86, following an X-mouse update I started to notice X-mouse would frequently crash when using the 'restore desktop icon layout'.

I've since built what I have listed above and the same issue persists.

You can reproduce this by using "Save Desktop Icon Layout" and then deleting a file or shortcut from the desktop and then clicking "Restore Desktop Icon Layout". X-mouse will crash with a generic windows error box.

Thanks for reporting, I'll take a look and see it I can reproduce it here - its not a feature I use often these days (unlike when i first added it, my desktop is a mess and I have got used to it being a mess lol!)

EDIT: Out of interest, are there any errors in the log file?

Confirmed - I can reproduce it here. There is little in the log.
I have found the problem - will be fixed in the next release (2.19.2 due out soon).

Not really helpful.
