#1495 Cannot define a prerequisite for task



I tried to define a prerequisite for a task but without success.

  • marking a task as prereq does not "stick" when I close the edit dialog; when I open the dialog again, the checkbox for the task marked as prereq is no longer set
  • I noticed that another task - where I was sure I did not set any prereqs for - has a prereq; when I remove the checkmark, close the edit dialog and reopen it again, the checkmark reappears (not sure if coincidence or if this is the checkmark that "disappeared" as described above)
  • when exiting Task Coach, an error message appears that points to taskcoachlog.txt (file attached)

The tasks only have a subject and a category (no due dates, no notes,...). I tried with active and inactive tasks, the result is the same.

If I can reproduce the problem with a small tsk-File, I will add this to this report.

Best Regards

    Hi Jérome,

    sorry for the duplicate - SF does not seem to search for partial matches like "prereq" in its bug reports...

    Thanks a lot for the fix!

    Best regards

    No problem, SF's search bites me too from time to time :)

  • Jérome Laheurte

    This bug should be fixed in the latest release of Task Coach. Can you please install the latest release of Task Coach and confirm that this bug has indeed been fixed?

    Thanks, Task Coach development team
