If the access violation occurs when scrolling history, try to find out what message/event preceeds the av. Then open the history file in a hexeditor and try to find that position. Events are stored in an orderly manner so use common sense/percentage averaging etc to try to find it..
before making any changes, back up the file.. then look for anything suspicious in the vicinity of the error.. the time I got corruptions the event entry was truncated and filled with zeroes...

electron, you get 1 history file for each contact.
so, about the history bug, to know what file is, just see what contact makes you crash watching history.

But I don't have any errors while reading the history!!!
I have an access violation when I exit &RQ!
It happens not every time...(But most of the times after chatting) And even without reading history...
My world is how I creat it.

Sad to hear that.. but you did ask me what to patch.. and the only time I've got access violations in &RQ (for at least two years now) was in history scrolling as provided.

We have about 90 instances of &RQ in our organization.
As you understand there are many different hardware and OS configurations. During last year there was one one day when all of instances doesn't work - it was discussed at this forum (48% connecting). All other time all instances work fine.

At our practice - Violation is a common problem of video adapter drivers (rarely - chipset drivers) or when system have incorrect DLL's in system directory of OS.
In your case - OS is clear, so I advise to check a new or other version of drivers.

I also have this problem and only with the latest test build of .17 .
It appeared no matter what contact i'd been talking to.
After downgrading to .16 it is completely gone.
So I strongly believe it is neither related to corrupted history nor to incorrect OS drivers.
Greetings,
Melkor

I've decided to return for a while to .16 ... And the bug gone...
No violations... Strange?
2 Pofigator: I don't think that I have incorrect dlls. It's impossible, because I've just reinstalled windows completely!!! And I didn't installed any special drivers or smth. else...

here is my humble opinion:

The only time, when I get AV was WHEN I READING MESSAGE HISTORY, and I've pressed almost simultaneously history button in TWO open instances of &RQ... No other strange occurrences of this sad error take place in my practice...;(

At this time, I have no idea what exactly from OS environment may be responsible for this error, but there is another strange &RQ behavior...
I always use Opera as my browser. So, when I browse some pages, and when in these pages have some GIF animation, main &RQ window, starts flash rapidly... when I close browser, there is no problem... I think this is related to &RQ transparency features, but the last word (as always...) have rejetto...

have a nice day folks!

(and don't think, U have done smthng wrong in your beloved &RQ, that reflects in loosing your personal info today... from now on, WE DO NOT HAVE ANY INFO... ICQ servers are crashed last night...) ;)))))

Yeah... No info at all :)))
Respect to Mirablis!!!!
They are really cooool :))))
I think it's correct! We don't need any nicks. Only numbers. :)))

2Plamen: For now I returned to .16 and have no bug...
IMHO the bug is only in last build of .17...
Rejetto should know it better :))

Access Violation

Hm, I installed &RQ .17 and I also get access violation when trying to exit. It also happens most of the times like in Electron's case. My OS is WinXP Professional.

2Pofigator - it's offtopic! We're nor discussing Xp here. We're discussig &rq and it should work (IMHO:) on any ver. of windows... If it's not so, than rejetto should write to us somthing like "&rq is not more supporting XP"...
Rejetto? Say something... Did you find the bug? Or no? OR what's going on :)))
