D1: Cannot run/step the process
Posted on 1997-05-09
I am having some problems with Delphi 1.x and I don't know where to start in fixing them.
The problem is that whenever I run my compiled app from within the Delphi 1.02 IDE, I get a message box that says:
"Cannot run/step the process"
The thing is, the application still runs. Other times, instead of getting that message box I'll get a divide by 0 error in my app, yet the app still runs (even before dismissing the error)!! My guess is that the IDE is running two copies of my application for whatever reason. Has anyone else had this problem?
There seems to be a lot of bugs in Delphi 1.x when handling large projects. Previously, when my app GPF'd it would take me to the correct offending source line. Now, no such luck. The GPF occurs with no indication of where the error is. Also, 75% of the time once I dismiss the GPF, Delphi itself will also GPF in both Delphi.exe and the infamous PAS*.DLL module. This is all under Win95 with
debugging info on and break on exception checked BTW.
If you could steer me in the right direction regarding these problems, or even better point me to a patch, I would appreciate it! What version of the 16-bit environment comes with Delphi 3?
