Re: Baffled by CCE

Started by Ken Rowberry November 6, 2007
IAR EW crashes on me all the time. I called IAR tech support and
found them to be astonishingly useless. I presume that all my support
contract gives me is access to the latest IAR bugs, etc.

What I found, via Google search, is that you can delete the settings
directory in your project and this sometimes helps. It works for me
as the program then loads and works, for a while. Whenever IAR EW
gets in a funk, I just delete this directory and we are back to
working.

The directory is recreated by EW. You lose a few settings when you
delete it but nothing serious and EW now runs.

After a crash, the other thing you want to do is go to Task Manager
(or Sysinternals Process Explorer!!) and kill of the zombie IAR task.
This may not be essential but I see the task labeled "IAR" and the
button labeled "Kill" and I can't resist.
