Mill Wizard crash on attempting to save G-code
« on: November 15, 2014, 12:07:07 PM »
Ron - greetings

Running licensed 1.0.17 on Win 8.1 as Administrator.

Very frequently (5 times in 15 saves this afternoon) the program just drops dead with the "Windows trying to find a solution" dialog when trying to save G-code. The frame of the file picker is displayed but with no contents.

I cannot find the sequence to make it happen to order. I had a theory that the problem was a folder with a very large number of files but that does not seem to explain it as it then failed in a small folder.

Job file (which is meant to be a very simple demo for a prospective customer) is attached.

As you no doubt will guess I cannot make it fail.  Since we converted to using the windows standards for file locations, and counting on the windows environment vars doing the right thing we have seen a few strange failures. I will keep poking at this one, hopefully I c an find the problem.
