I just release the version 2.0 of my application: Forms To Go, and I'm
having a very strange, hard to reproduce and weird bug.
A small group of users: Mac OS X and WinXP are reporting that after double
clicking the application to open it, it closes immediatly, with a NIL Object
Exception Error. This was not happening with previous versions of my
software, that used the same program
I modified the OPEN event of APP, and included an Exception Block in order
to discover where the NIL Object Exception was coming from.
I discovered the problem is when I try to open the main Window of the
program because users are reporting the error # 003
wFormsToGo = new WinFormsToGo
if err IsA NilObjectException then
if wFormsToGo = nil then
MsgBox "FATAL ERROR # 003 - Please report"
MsgBox "FATAL ERROR # 004 - Please report"
MsgBox "FATA ERROR # 005 - Please report"
I'm working on a PowerBook Titanium 800 Mhz, 512 MB Ram with OS X 10.3.1.
I was using RealBasic 5.2.2 and then upgraded to RealBasic 5.2.4 and
rebuilt, but the problem persists.
I haven't been able to reproduce the problem on my Mac, not even on 7 iMacs
I've in my office with OS X 10.2
Also, I ran the program on a Windows XP Professional I have in my office and
couldn't get it to fail.
But the truth is that about 10 users have reported this problem so far, 3 of
them using Mac OS X 10.3.1, 5 using Windows XP Professional and 2 using
Windows XP Home.
Thanks for any help
