PSoC Creator 3.1 crashing then blue screen of death
Well, me? I like to stick with the version of software that I know works, and I always try to disable automatic updates.
Nevertheless, I found it reasonable recently to upgrade from PSoC Creator 2.2 to 3.1. I think it was Friday; maybe Thursday. I was immediately met with a reproducible crash. Then today, I got a blue screen of death and a corrupted project file that would no longer open. It temporarily lost my top design and code edits. Fortunately, I have *hourly* automatic backups. I was able to restore the project, including most recent top design changes (more than an hour old), then copy my free-standing c file back into the project, recovering my recent code edits. I only lost about 2 hours, including the reboot and reload of other status stuff.
So I must get to the bottom of this problem, or go back to 2.2.
The reproducible crash situation occurs pretty much *any* time I try to edit a #macro in the source code. This software tries to do real-time advance compiling and syntax checking, whatever you call that. And I believe it is a problem with this and #macros. If I try to type in #include "filename.h", then the crash occurs 100% every time when I type the "e" finishing up "#include". I've attached a jpg of the error message. While I can type "#if 0" as I often do to temporarily remove a chunk of code, I get the same crash when I later type "#endif", right after finishing the word with the letter "f".
I don't know exactly what I was doing when the blue screen of death occurred. I'll worry about that, I guess, if it happens again.
Your assistance with this is greatly appreciated.
