Strange Project Errors
Date: 30.01.09 01:42 (Fri, 30 Jan 2009 00:42:07 +0000)
From: Tom Benson
Some of the users who are downloading my sample project are reporting
strange problems. This is the error that is reported.

I can only guess that this refers to a problem with one of the
Computed Property setters, but the 'File: Office' reference means
nothing.

users seem to be in 2007 series of REALbasic, is ther a known issue
with opening projects created by newer versions of RB???

Old versions cannot always correctly open projects from new versions
of RB as new things get added

They _should_ just ignore things they don't understand though

Unfortunately, there are many things that simply are not
transferrable to earlier versions. The change in the naming of Supers
in 2008 won't translate back to the format in 2007. They will
translate when the opposite occurs (i.e. 2007 to 2008).

Best if the users of your projects update to the version you have used.

Terry

Tom,

This sounds strangely like a problem we just worked through. The
problem was that we had an encrypted class that had a deprecated
function in it. For instance:

In RB 2007r4, you create a function that has this:

f = desktopfolder.child("Untitled.txt")

it compiles and runs okay, so you encrypt it and send it on its merry
way.

A user using 2008r5 adds this encrypted class to their project.
DesktopFolder has been deprecated and must be replaced with
SpecialFolders.Desktop, but because the class is encrypted, that's not
possible. Unfortunately the error message is worthless. We spent a
long time looking for this error before stumbling on the solution.

Greg

I've seen this 'File: Office' error in the following situation:

Project (.rbp) that has
- encrypted classes
- encrypted pictures
- File Type Set

I saved the project as .rbvcp to another location

When opening the .rbvcp and trying to 'run', I got the 'File: Office' error.

If your 'SourceListItem.Get' is encrypted:
unencrypt it, then the debugger will show where the error occured.
in my case it was one of the following:
- file type set (it was empty when saved as .rbvcp)
- picture

>Some of the users who are downloading my sample project
are you providing a .rbvcp or a .rbp?

If you're providing your project as .rbvcp, you might also run into other issues:
Constants that have a 'Platform'-Target can loose this when opened in a RB-IDE that runs in another language than yours.
Example: English RB-IDE saves it as 'Any', German IDE saves it as 'Alle'
-> if the 'english .rbvcp' is opened in a german IDE, the platform-target will be 'empty'...
