    You know, between this 'vague' ('imprecise' might be a better word?) and "gee it would be handy to have an ASCII chart in the IDE" in another current thread, it's pretty obvious to me that many, many programmers would rather endure inconvenience than take the two minutes it would take to send in a new feature suggestion.

    If Pb is at all like me, they really appreciate suggestions from Real Users.

    My PPPS has only been around for seven years, and I am fresh out of my own ideas and am totally dependent on my users for them.

    You'd think PB Inc would be even hungrier than am I considering the Windows compilers have been around for about ten years now.

    Checking the File System activity with FileMon may help pin-point the precise issue.

    You know, '496 destination file write error' is kind of vague. I know you can detect the specific failure, eg "invalid filename or path", "Permission denied", etc...

    .. a more precise error message could make it a lot easier to figure out why you got the "496"

    Ok

    I'm trying to find what causes the problem. It's something inside the app.

    I have a smaller app that has the same problem. First it didn't compile, then I commented most of the app. Now it compiles. I'm adding functionality, so I can pinpoint where is the problem.

    I don't know if I can reach any conclusion.

    This app used to compile ok.

    I reinstalled the OS and everything else on my computer, and did all the upgrades to PBCC. I don't recall exactly if I had updated PBCC to 4.04 previously.

    I'll say something later.

    It sounds like this problem is not caused by any anti-virus or other processes running in the background if a hello world program compiles. Can you send this project that causes an error 496 on a compile after a cold boot to [email protected] and they will look into this issue.

    If you ran the 4.03 to 4.04 update, the uninstall will remove PBCC 4.x and you will have to re-install 4.03. In your \PBCC4\Bin\ directory you will find a PBCC.bak file which is a backup up of the PBCC 4.03 compiler and PBCC.exe is the 4.04 compiler. Just back up/rename the PBCC.EXE and then rename PBCC.bak to PBCC.exe and you are back to 4.03.

    This works

    Code:
    #COMPILE EXE
    #DIM ALL
    
    FUNCTION PBMAIN
    
        PRINT "Hello world"
        
        SLEEP 3000
    
    END FUNCTION
    The old programs (that used to compile) get the 496 immediately after a cold boot.

    I read the other thread about this error first. That's why I uninstaled Spybot.

    The path is short: c:\step2\pro\step2.bas
    The program is large and has several includes.

    Could this be release 4.04?
    If I uninstall it, I'll get the 4.03?

    If you compile a simple hello world program do you still get error 496?
    Have you checked the task manager to ensure this processes is still not running?
