    MIAW crashes

    Team Alphie
      In a standalone director program, I have a function that opens up a window on mouseup. The window contains a simple .dir movie prompts user to enter password.

      Several user reported that the application crashes on mouseup(trying to open the window) , and "Macromedia Projector has encountered a problem..." message was display. The application itselt either quit or froze.

      I have not encountered this problem personally either in Director developing environment nor in a projector run environ. (I use both PC and Mac, use MX 2004 version) But this seems to happen a lot to people who uses it in a projector environ.

      Does anyone know if this is a common/known problem/issue with director MIAW? What cause a MIAW to crash normally? The fact that I can't reproduce it at all yet this problem happens to more than a few of my users is puzzling. Is there something wrong with the code perhaps?

      Many thanks in advance.

          There is nothing apparently wrong with the code you posted, except
          perhaps in the ForgetAllWindows() handler. Is the OpenCheckMailBox()
          handler called from a window that might be forgotten in the
          ForgetAllWindows() handler?
          You should search the NG for issues related to crashes and forgetting MIAWs.
