ADL in Adobe AIR 3.1 crashes then works then crashes then works

Hi,

 

I'm using Adobe AIR 3.1 to create an HTML/Javascript application.

 

Whenever I go to run the application using "adl", I'll get the message "Adobe AIR Debug Launcher has stopped working".  If I repeat this several times, the application will eventually come up and run normally. The next time I try to run it, it may crash again, even if I've made no changes.

 

I'm on Windows 7 x64. In the event viewer, the errors seem to occur in either RASAPI32.dll or rtutils.dll.

 

Faulting application name: adl.exe, version: 3.1.0.4880, time stamp: 0x4eb7612e

Faulting module name: RASAPI32.dll, version: 6.1.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bdad7

Exception code: 0xc0000005

Fault offset: 0x000017e9

Faulting process id: 0x1f54

Faulting application start time: 0x01cd07c139760fb3

Faulting application path: C:\PF86\Adobe\AirSDK\bin\adl.exe

Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\RASAPI32.dll

Report Id: 7b7c9ecc-73b4-11e1-ace3-bcaec51b8285

 

Faulting application name: adl.exe, version: 3.1.0.4880, time stamp: 0x4eb7612e

Faulting module name: rtutils.dll, version: 6.1.7601.17514, time stamp: 0x4ce7b9ac

Exception code: 0xc0000005

Fault offset: 0x000012c8

Faulting process id: 0x1df0

Faulting application start time: 0x01cd07bd9cfe7082

Faulting application path: C:\PF86\Adobe\AirSDK\bin\adl.exe

Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\rtutils.dll

Report Id: de3b1cf6-73b0-11e1-ace3-bcaec51b8285

 

I downloaded the AIR 3.1 SDK, copied over a few Javascript files and only use "adl" for running the program. I haven't tried to build an application yet.

    Hi Tony,

    I'm sorry you're running into this crash.  Would you mind generating a crash dump so we can take a look at the call stack?  See this post for details.  Once generated, please open a new bug report at bugbase.adobe.com and provide both the crashlog and sample code/application if you can.  Please post back with the bug URL or number once done.

     

    Out of curiosity, does this occur if you try running your app on a new user account?

     

    Thanks,

    Chris

    I don't think you're missing anything.  Hopefully Yuzhong will understand with your comment instructing them with the ADL command.  Please let me know if that doesn't help.

    Hi Tony,

    I tried your test application out by running it 100 times on a Win 7x64 system.  Unfortunately I could never get it to crash.  I also took a look at your crash logs.  Here's the stack trace against the AIR 3.3 beta:

     

    >rasapi32.dll!_memset()
    rasapi32.dll!_DebugInitEx@12()  + 0x2f bytes
    rasapi32.dll!_DebugInit@8()  + 0x15 bytes
    rasapi32.dll!_RasApiDebugInit@0()  + 0xc bytes
    rasapi32.dll!_RasConnectionNotificationW@12()  + 0xb bytes
    wininet.dll!InitRasWorkItem()  + 0x13 bytes
    shlwapi.dll!_ExecuteWorkItemThreadProc@4()  + 0xe bytes
    ntdll.dll!_RtlpTpWorkCallback@8()  + 0xdf bytes
    ntdll.dll!_TppWorkerThread@4()  + 0x5a4 bytes
    kernel32.dll!@BaseThreadInitThunk@12()  + 0x12 bytes
    ntdll.dll!___RtlUserThreadStart@8()  + 0x27 bytes
    ntdll.dll!__RtlUserThreadStart@8()  + 0x1b bytes

     

    You'll notice that neither AIR nor Webkit are in this stack trace, which leads me to believe that you might be having a problem with your network stack.  Have you seen this crash on other systems?
