  • Problem with Resource file Version Resource

    I use PowerBASIC Windows Compiler 7.04 runniing under XP Professional. I have always edited the Version Data in the RC file, "Compiled" the RC file creating a RES and a PBR file. That I would run thr basic source file which included the PBR and all was hunky dory. For the last few days this has not worked. Does anyone have any experiences here?

    What has changed, on your system, in the last few days?

        I use the same compiler version and follow the same procedure. Only difference: I use XP Home. But I have no problems at all compiling and including version resource files.
        Do you get error messages ? Have you - accidentally - corrupted some other part of the resource source file ?

          Copy Paste your project to a different folder and try again, and see if this time it "magically" worked in the new location.

          (I am curious if you ran into what I could "SWEAR" I have seen before but could not replicate repeatedly, which made me believe I corrupted something, and while troubleshooting, I corrected the error by accident)

            Another idea: if software ceases to work properly from one day to another, the reason may be a corrupted registry entry (in Win XP not as often as it used to be, but still...). In such a case it may help to re-install Powerbasic or to restore the registry from the last known good backup.
