Topic: Critical error

Good day. I'm having problems with the project. I periodically get an error, it closes the project and completely removes it. And more than the project is not possible to revive. Photos in the app.

Re: Critical error

The only thing that saved me is that I make several copies of my projects.

Re: Critical error

Good day Modicon and thanks for report it,

I think your project use so many pictures added which can perhaps cause issue.
I have a big slowdown sometime even on my big machine when  I'm looking your project.
Pictures added on project is converted to base64 and this increase so big your project file.

A base64 encoding defect is that the total weight of the image increases by an average of 50%.

If you can a good way is to use only low weight images, or use element editor to create this pictures.



Re: Critical error

I think we need to learn a new format to store pictures in future versions in project file.

Re: Critical error

Thanks for the answer. It worries me that after this error, the project no exists. He is removed and there is no possibility to return it.File size is set to zero.


Re: Critical error

Even with latest 0.7-RC1?

Nice project. nomicons/smile


Re: Critical error

  Nothing in this directory?

C:\Users\ your_username\AppData\Local\stalefiles\QElectroTech

Re: Critical error

I reduced the size of my project. See if there will again be this error. But the problem with removing the panel from the project remains.


Re: Critical error

God day scorpio.
I understand the problem mainly arises from the fact that a lot of large-sized images and the project begins to slow down. But I do not understand why he deletes the project with this error. It makes the size of the project equal to zero. And there is no way to restore it. I sent you an example of two projects. One before the error and second after.


Re: Critical error

Same thing, here !
After a use clean project, save and reload project, add again Magelis HIM and QET crash too, strange.
Now add again Magelis HIM, save, but this item not appear again when I launch program and your project.


Re: Critical error

I deleted this panel, then I recreated it, but the problem remained the same. I guess I broke the program.nomicons/grin What do you recommend me to do? nomicons/rolleyes I think this is magic.


Re: Critical error

I deleted it from that folder I created in another one and then put it back in this folder. Then now it is saved in the project.


Re: Critical error

Nice, thanks. nomicons/smile

I added your refreshed element, but very strange .........
I examined quickly previous element XML and didn't find the cause of problem.


Re: Critical error

Good day.
The problem with the error and the removal of the project remained. So my advice is to make a copy of the project. :'(

Ok for this bug, I found it.
Until I fix it (and even after, they will be better), for the elements who disappear when you open a project, open the element in the element editor, and for every terminal check if they position x and y are integer if not (for exemple x=1.02 y=10) move the element without holding the ctrl key, the terminal will be automatiquely snapped to the grid, and so have integer position.

For the other bug wich cause the lost of your project, the crash occur when you do special thing or totaly randomly ?


Re: Critical error

Good evening Joshua.

Randomly. Last time happened today, when I wanted to do print project.I have a problem like christophe.lemaitre. In his topic, I attached a photo that happens to the project after this error.


Re: Critical error

Did you see here if there is some files ?
C:\Users\ your_username\AppData\Local\stalefiles\QElectroTech

After a crash when you start again QElectroTech, did a dialog ask you to open a recovery file ?


Re: Critical error

The first time I was lucky that two projects were opened at once. I was able to restore it through the second project. After that, I began to make copies of the project.

Re: Critical error

As I wrote at the beginning. After this error, the size of the project becomes zero. I understood, that this problem is not only me.


Re: Critical error

You could see in this directory :



Re: Critical error

Checked appdata folder and there is no stalefiles folder. 
Event viewer shows this critical error code "0xc0000005" on app crash.

My setup is i7-7600k/16gb ram and windows7pro 64bit and just noticed that I have service pack 1.


Re: Critical error

Ok, it isn't a bad machine, strange!


Re: Critical error

Today I worked all day with the program. There were no errors.As for the directory, I cannot find this folder anywhere.:)Maybe I already became blind.

Re: Critical error

You started well your Carugin session, and not a public user?
I tried on Win10, Win7, ReadyToUse and installer and I always saw stalefiles\QElectroTech when a project is loaded.

Edit : stalefiles folder on Users/User_name AppData Local exist only on 0.7-Rc1, not in 0.6X versions.
