Re: SpiderBasic: Wrong licenses for applications

Three years have passed since the initial post, but it seems to have gone by unnoticed, since the problem persists as of SB v2.31. I've created a dedicated post on the SpiderBasic Forum to address the issue: https://forums.spiderbasic.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2081 And also mentioned in another p...

Re: Maybe a bug when print a masked signed value via debug

The debugger indeed displays inconsistent output between x86 and x64 versions (tested with PB 5.73), but only when attempting to carry out the bitwise operation within the Debug command, i.e.: Debug l & $ffffffff If instead you create a new variable to hold the manipulated result, the output is ...

Re: Scintilla Update to v3.7.6 (before migrating to v4)

The version included with PB right now doesn't require the DLL when compiled, because it's included as an internal library from source code. I believe it does require the DLL, because building Scintilla as a static library has always been problematic under Windows. If the program is running as expe...

Re: Scintilla Update to v3.7.6 (before migrating to v4)

Bummer indeed. At some point, avoiding additional runtime dependencies creates bigger problems. Using an external scintilla dll also becomes a runtime dependency. Yes, the core PB philosophy of creating binaries that don't require end users to install third party components (e.g. VS runtimes, and s...

Re: Scintilla Update to v3.7.6 (before migrating to v4)

An update to the newer (or at least latest 3.x) of Scintilla would be good. A lot of stuff has been fixed and some useful things added. I believe that the Scintilla component was indeed updated since this post was created, but it couldn't be updated to the latest version (in the v3 range) due to to...

Re: SWV: A simple HTML/JS desktop GUI engine for PB

Actually, firace, I think that if you were to release SWV as an open source project (e.g. on GitHub) that people could use freely for non commercial project, but pay to be able to use it for commercial ones, you might find the strategy more beneficial (this is what Sciter does, for example). 1. It w...

Yes this is the correct file: SWV_Demo1_native_x86.zip Check if the size of the ZIP file is 90344 bytes. If not, please clear your browser cache and try to download it again. I've downloaded it again using a different browser and now it works — you were right, I was getting a cached version, and th...

Re: SWV: A simple HTML/JS desktop GUI engine for PB

I have just updated the demo and it should work on Windows 10. Could you try it again? (Note that currently, the DLL is time-limited.) I've downloaded it again, same result: I get to see the "limited demo" message, then it crashes. Is the download link correct? I'm downloading the SWV_Dem...

Re: SWV: A simple HTML/JS desktop GUI engine for PB

Demo Not Working on Win 10 I've downloaded the Demo 2 and and tried it under Win10: the exe launches, hangs for a short while and then silently crashes. Tried recompiling form source using PB 5.72 32-bit: same result. Probably the issue is with the DLL itself. Issues with DLLs that suddenly stop wo...

Re: PureBasic 5.72 LTS Beta 1 is available !

I use JAWS screen reader, so perhaps it's doing something to the ide that it doesn't like? Btw, it would be very nice if one of the secondary compilers could be set as default, so if I use e.g., 32 bit ide and wish to compile most of my programs with the 64 bit compiler, that there was a way to set...

Re: SpiderBasic: Wrong licenses for applications

http://www.spiderbasic.com/documentation/reference/license_application.html I strongly doubt that Spiderbasic uses binary libraries in the generated javascript codes. It might actually be doing so, if it's reusing the same C libraries and compiling them to JavaScript or WASM via tools like EMscript...

Re: [5.72 LTS] IDE not responsive

I haven't experience the above mentioned problems with the latest IDE release, and I also work on Win 10 x64. The fact that it's affecting some users and not others might indicate some common hardware which might be incompatible (or trig the bug) — e.g. do you work with multiple monitors? It could b...

Try classic method instead: outstr$ = "some text " + #DQUOTE$ + somefilename$ + #DQUOTE$ + Str(somevar) And for SaveDebugOutput("info.txt") I alway prefere to add full path (to avoid possible changecurentdir by other part of program) i.e Debug GetTemporaryDirectory() + "inf...
