Title: 2002 version qe 3.5 technicolor
Post by: hutch-- on February 21, 2020, 10:55:30 PM
I spent some hours tracking down the bug in the technicolor version of QE that was written back when I used Win98se. It was written in PowerBASIC before the next version was written in MASM and while it seems to run OK, it is neither supported nor recommended and it may have bugs in it. It was only ever a BETA for me to test syntax colouring and was never a release version.

 :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:  That's technicolor!

And JJ it's right. Even in this old machine is hard to see a delay loading 1 MB file, and loading 4 MB file take only a blink .

Works fine :thumbsup: And \Masm32\include\windows.inc is always a good test candidate ;-)

Magnus,

It means your exe is not running or closing properly, when it finishes running it remains in memory. You really need to get the executable to run correctly, then do the fast stuff.

Using automatic building sometimes I build a console program with windows linking (or viceversa) and that kind of thing happen. :biggrin:

Magnus,

Where the app is supposed to end, put 2 lines of code, the first with a MessageBox to show that you got there, the second with an ExitProcess() to close the app properly. If you don't see the MessageBox, it is crashing before exit.

I used a different version of qeditor which had prostart and switched,its solved by I run bat file and click on .exe instead of the menu choices build all and run and now it works
but .bat file uses polink instead
