This is the second time in four days the RoboHTML has
"destructively abended". In each case, the error indicated
"RoboHTML.exe -- Application Error". I didn't screen capture the
first error. The second message read "The exception unknown
software exception (0xc0020001) occurred in the application at
location 0x7c812a5b. Click on OK to terminate the program." (i have
a IBM ThinkCenter 8414 running Microsoft XP, Office 2003, fully
patched and protected.)
On 11/29, I believe this broke the project's Snippet
processing. I could add Snippets, but they would not show up in the
pod after the project was closed and re-opened.
On 12/3, the RoboHTML application abend broke the "new >
folder" functionality for the project. If I tried to add a folder
to the project, the application would abend.
It is clear that RoboHTML maintains its own "understanding"
of the folders and topics and relationships in the project --
independent of the contents of the folders and files on the disk. I
believe that this "manager" is the projectname.cpd file.
When RoboHTML abends, it appears that the "manager" is
corrupted. And the only alternative is to create a new project,
re-create the folders one-by-one, and import the topics one-by-one.
Am I missing some more efficient re-creation process. Is
there a way to "rebuild" the "manager" control file from the
existing project folder information? Is it possible to import a
folder or multiple topics into a new project with a single action?
Is this Application abend common? Is there something I might
be doing inadvertently to trigger it? Should I be making "safe
copies" of the project on a regular basis?
