SparkeShare crashes when Folder not available #1034

Error: When the SparkleShare folder is not available at program start (I have it on a partition that I mount with truecrypt) SparkleShare will crash.

Feature: Dropbox lets you decide to try and synchronize after for example 1 minute from the start of the program. Thast would be nice, though of course low priority :)


can you give me the crash report?


Sure, it's reproducable. I tested only on Windows though.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16"?>
        <Build>7601 Service Pack 1</Build>
        <Product>(0x30): Windows 7 Professional</Product>
        <Flavor>Multiprocessor Free</Flavor>
        <BIOSVersion>8DET58WW (1.28 )</BIOSVersion>

it's not exactly what i'm looking for. there should be a file in ~/SparkleShare.


No, the debug_log.txt is only created in case the program starts up correctly. I think considering param 8 under ProblemSignatures it seems that there is just a try-catch missing if the folder does not exist.


this should be fixed by b9f74d1. it won't crash, but will give you a notification instead.
