Easy Code 2.0 crashes when using specific key combination

Apologies if this is not the proper place to report bugs, but after having looked around for any other way to submit a bug report and coming up empty, I decided, based on the other possible bugs discussed here, that this was my best bet. ^^;

That said, Easy Code 2.0 crashes whenever I use the "Function (Fn) + Up / Down" key combination to adjust the volume levels on my laptop.
From my testing, this only occurs when the code editor is open and does not occur with other similar key combinations like "Function (Fn) + Left / Right".

Here is the content of the message displayed by Windows upon Easy Code crashing:

This is the only real issue I've encountered so far in my first week and a half using Easy Code and everything else has worked wonderfully, so thank you; I've found Easy Code to be quite useful so far haha. ^^


Hi Raccoon,

Thanks for using Easy Code and sorry for the inconveniences! Please give me some time to find and fix that bug since I do not have a computer with the "Function" key.

Of course, take your time. ^^ I just wanted to make sure that this little bug was made known, but thankfully I save often enough that, when I have accidentally crashed Easy Code like this, I haven't lost any work yet haha.

If there's any other information I could provide that might be of use to you, feel free to let me know.
Have you considered just simulating the input that crashes Easy Code so that you wouldn't need physical access to a keyboard with the "Function (Fn)" key?


Hi Racoon,

I could finally find the problem and solve it. The "Fn + Up / Down" sends a WM_APPCOMMAND which was not properly processed by EC. So, I rebuild the two executables (32/64 bit versions) with the bug fixed. Please download them at:

Thank you very much for your help!

That's great, I'm glad you were able to sort this one out without too much trouble. ^^
I grabbed the newly built executables and can confirm that everything's working fine now.

Thank you, Ramon. ^^
