[NTB] Re: Bug or not it Bugs me
- Hi Michael, hi all,
Yes. I encountered this problem too. See my reply after the org message.
I don't cut the org message much, because its needed for understanding
the prob maybe ...

It is a rather esoteric issue, but it seems to be a NoteTab 'problem'
at least, if it is not really to be considered a bug:
Running Win95 4.00.950.B (german), NoteTab Pro 4.8 v.184.108.40.206
Sometimes in a DOS Window, I use an old utility named "see.com" to have
a short look on text files - it's kind of an improved type-command.
Somehow the files are locked while I viewing them - as far as I remember
other old 16-bit Apps, even Windows-Apps, use to behave the same way.
Now, while have a file open with see, and change the same file
therewhile in NoteTab and try to save it, a message box pops up telling
the file could not create. OK so far. Clicking it away, closing see,
saving again works fine.
But if I do *not* click away the message first, but first close see and
switch back to NoteTab, I can't click away the message then, and NoteTab
hangs and must be killed via ctrl+alt+del|Taskmanager. Sometimes after
restarting NoteTab it hangs again, and I have to restart Windows
entirely to solve the prob.
I've cross-checked this using Yutaka Emura's EmEditor 1.27, and there
the handling was o.k. - I was able to switch to the dos box and close
see first, then click away the error message and save my file.
So maybe the matter is in fact of interest.
Currently the gmx address seems to be unreliable.

I also have recurring problem about twice a week with error screen that
will not die. Sometimes after restarting the computer (Power off|Power on)
the error screen comes up again immediately after reboot. If so, I reboot
again. It doesn't happen often but when it does, it takes 5-8 minutes to
get back on track. Restart seems less able to douse the error than a
I run Win98 with MSIE5.0 and NTP 4.8/np on a Pentium II.

a Band-Aid, but sometimes they make the hurting go away. ;-)
