To avoid lots of unrelated error emails flooding my way -
1) Reply to the list, don't send to me. Don't CC to me either, I'm
subscribed to the list, and the reply to the list will get to me. If
you CC to me, then I will get it twice, taking up twice my bandwidth, I
only get 200MB a month.
b) The new exe error dialog is only for exe's that E17 starts, not for
E17 itself. In fact, only those exe's that are started by e_app (most
ways of starting eaps, but not all) are currently caught by the exe
error dialog. Once the bugs are ironed out, it will be added to the
other methods of starting exe's.
III) The exe error dialog will catch exe's stopped by signals, and
should report the signal number. It will also catch any exe's that
stop normally and return something other than EXIT_SUCCESS. In other
words, the exe has to do the correct thing when it fails and stops, and
not all of them do.
0100) If the exe error dialog fails to do the expected thing, first
check that the exe in question is doing the expected thing before
reporting it as a bug to me. Any bug report that does not include the
actual exit code returned by the exe and other details will be ignored.
Five) There is no five.
Enjoy your crashed exe's. B-)
