Crash when editing file in hex mode

#1 Crash when editing file in hex mode

Posted by: jojo | Date: 2019-06-04 16:39 | IP: IP Logged

Using PSPad 32-bit version 5.0.1 (312) on Windows 10 Professional x64, I can reliably crash the application by opening a file in hex editor mode and then just keeping a key pressed to overwrite a sequence of bytes. After a while, I either get an access violation message box or the application just shuts down without any notice. The amount of bytes after which this occurs differed on two machines I tested this on, sometimes it was after less than 64 bytes, in other cases it took up to overwritten 256 bytes until the application would crash.

Can you send me the exception log to the support mail?

Unfortunately the crash dialog doesn't show up as the application just shuts down immediately. Is there another way to generate a log for you?
