Posted 20 May 2012 - 05:22 PM

About 2 weeks ago I started getting an error whenever I try to run the program. Since I thought it might have something to do with the problems I was working on I reverted everything (it didn't help). I've even tried re-syncing completely which also didn't help. A couple of other things to note:

1) If I hit suppress, then I get the two attached errors.
2) This only happens in Debug mode (the two errors), if I switch to release mode they don't appear (but the one below still does) and the game hangs if I try to do anything at the main menu.

Any tips/advice on how to fix this so I can get back to coding?

Can you run it in the VS debugger (in debug mode), and select "break" when it brings up the continue/suppress/break/etc dialog box, and then check the value of the "path" argument in the call to CreateDirectories?

It dies out on this line in wutil.cpp, personalPath = GetFolderPath(CSIDL_PERSONAL); since it can't find the path. I'll see if I can find out why.

Which version of the game were you using when it worked? The CSIDL_PERSONAL has been since r11389 and is new in Alpha 10. It should be "My Documents". You have both Windows 7 and 8 installed on the same system?

I was on a very late Alpha 9 build (not sure exactly when the last time I synced up when it worked, probably close to 4 weeks ago, Windows 7). I used to have Windows 7 but I'd been looking for a chance to refresh everything so I migrated to Win 8. I'll see if I can go back before r11389 and check if it works. If so, I can look at debugging this issue and why Win 8 doesn't like CSIDL_PERSONAL (or at least my configuration).

One reason it might not work is that CSIDL* are deprecated since Vista, see http://msdn.microsof...4(v=vs.85).aspx and http://msdn.microsof...0(v=vs.85).aspx

Ah, I read a little into that but didn't think much of it. I guess I can look at whipping something up for Win 7+.

Not sure what you mean by "dies out on this line", since that line looks incapable of failing by itself :). Do you mean the "ENSURE(SUCCEEDED(ret))" inside GetFolderPath was failing? (If so, what value was 'ret'?)

One reason it might not work is that CSIDL* are deprecated since Vista

I don't think that should matter - it should be supported forever for compatibility (since it's a very widely used API), and nobody else has reported similar errors on Vista/Win7, as far as I'm aware.

My mistake, I should have explained it better earlier, it does fail on the ENSURE(SUCCEEDED(ret)) line. Ret is now 'device is not ready' which changed recently, before it was something like path not found.

It's weird that this happened since it just stopped working one day while I was still running Windows 7 (no changes were made over that period, after syncing it broke).

Do you have any kind of weird setup, maybe your documents located on a network drive or non standard location? Check that and see if the drive/folder really exists.

The weirdest thing I have in my setup is relocated My Documents to my other (internal) drive, but that's just changing the reference in libraries, I don't actually move anything that already exists. And that wasn't a problem with my old setup either, it just stopped working with update r11389.

I'm going to try blowing away my profile. Maybe re-creating it will reset whatever weird behavior is happening.

We never used My Documents until r11389 :) If you moved it in libraries, then surely that's what the win API will return. Is the reference still valid, drive letter didn't change? (Maybe we do need better error handling there...)

I recreated my profile and the problem went away, so this should be something to note in troubleshooting this sort of issue in the future.

Ah it's good to know a solution :) Out of curiosity, what was the first indication of the error, what would someone first see? I'm guessing an error related to the "ENSURE(SUCCEEDED(ret))" line? ENSURE should cause a debug warning if it's test is false.

Basically the game stopped on that line (ENSURE(SUCCEEDED(ret)) since it couldn't find the directory. I guess we could look at:
1) Printing a debug message and a message to the user (ask if they have any weird shortcuts or if they've moved their My Documents, etc.).
2) Redirecting the folder to something "standard" (C: emp0AD) or temporary so that they know about the problem.
