I can only repeat what I said : set the path to the x86 compiler in Preferences.
If it doesn't work (I can't think on any reason), you may modify PureFORM.ini directly : FORM_CompilerPath = C:\YourPBx86path\Compilers\pbcompiler.exe
Gnozal, I know you are a very nice guy, so I won't answer "...and I can only repeat that..."
Take my word please, I tried your suggestion (several times) already.
Let me put it this way:
* Is there corresponding code at all
in PureFORM that actively removes the Path entry from the settings and subsequently from the .ini
(be it deliberately or casually by putting "" where a non-empty path string should rather be) when it starts up, reads the .ini file and doesn't like what it sees at the target point in the file system ?
(I really can't think of any malware or similar outside stuff of PureFORM that concerns itself with producing this "oh so funny" misbehaviour )
* Is it a secret how PureFORM actually arrives at the conclusion that the respective file is " not a valid x86 executable", or could you share
the criteria with those of us who are concerned with the problem (e.g. Helpy as well as me ) ?
* I checked more closely, I would have to have at least one USB stick plus
the sd card plugged into my notebook to actually have
drive letter "F:" assigned at all ( something I very rarely do, and almost definitely not at all when I'm using PB or Pureform ).
Could possibly any "default" reference path "F:\..." be hidden deep, deep down in PureFORM's sources, somehow getting applied because
some "if-then"- or "select" - construct falls through "the floor of all anticipated conditions" for whatever reason ?
(No especially french letters visible in the path to the "ghost" compilerfile path, though).
Can I do anything more to track down the problem ?
Hope my wild speculations of what could possibly be are not arriving at your end as offensive,
I really am at a loss what could be a reason on the computer near me
The windows event logs are quiet on the matter, no "you need authorization for what you are trying to do", nothing.
