Quoting Groepaz
"VICE version only a few commits behind current trunk" - was it even ever tested with it? :)


"I heard recept updates of Win10 get somewhat strange when it comes to stuff on desktop"
i have funny behaviour on desktop also on win7, also had it on XP even. the whole permission stuff and also the file-locking in windows is so broken it hurts :(


I don't know how C64Studio runs VICE, but with GTK3VICE I would at least expect to see a cmd.exe instance popping up, disappearing quickly if some arguments passed to VICE are wrong.

The whole "files on desktop" is indeed very broken. Last night I couldn't remove a VICE bindist dir because Windows decided a font file was somehow in use and couldn't be deleted (I could rename it, but it still refused to die).

Doing the only sane Windows thing was ofcourse to reboot :)

I'd rather say doing the only sane Windows thing is removing Windows. ;)

Naturally, but I'm forcing myself to use Windows 10, can't really call something crap without first having tried it for some period of time :)

And it helps with trying to get Gtk3VICE running properly on Windows, finding ways around the shitty, almost non-existent C99 support.

Dang. Thanks for the screenshots, that seems fine too. As far as I can see the preparing of the emulator seems to fail.
There would be a message "calling …" with the full command.

Is there really no more info after "An exception occurred"? There ought to be at least a partial stack trace.

I simply can't provoke your problem. If you wouldn't mind, I added a few checks and uploaded a temp version to http://www.georg-rottensteiner.de/webmisc/C64StudioRelease.zip

This one should at least not get stuck in the not-rebuilding-state, but also put the full stack trace in the output window.

It must be something really stupid I didn't catch.

(Re)compiling/building now works properly :)

However, trying to run VICE ("build and run"), I get the following output:
Determined D:\projects\c64studio-test\main.asm as active document
Running build on D:\projects\c64studio-test\main.asm
Build successful, 0 warnings, 0 errors encountered
Start address $0801 to $0818, size 24 bytes
Compiled to file D:\projects\c64studio-test\main.prg, 26 bytes
Running D:\projects\c64studio-test\main.asm
Internal Error in RunCompiledFile: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
   at C64Studio.VICERemoteDebugger.CheckEmulatorVersion(ToolInfo ToolRun)
   at C64Studio.MainForm.RunCompiledFile(DocumentInfo Document, CompileTargetType TargetType)


Hope still helps with debugging.

I'm running Win10 Home, 64-bit, with an i5-7400 CPU and 8GB of memory, if you need more (system) info, just ask.

That helps, yes! Looks like if I found a version info in the emulator file I always expected it to have a FileVersion and ProductVersion entry. Looks like that wasn't the case.

Since the previous VICE version all had this, I'm going by the assumption, that all >= 3.0 features are present if I can't find a version info.

I've uploaded a new version to http://www.georg-rottensteiner.de/webmisc/C64StudioRelease.zip

If you could give it one final whirl that would be awesome!

Hi.
I use C64Studio environment as the main asm tool for C64. I use default ACME like syntax (it's not 100% compatible with actual ACME version).

What I like is:
- All_About_Your_64 included in help. I press F1 at mnemonic and help is opening on the page with description of that mnemonic.
- Great integration with Vice debugger. Works perfect with stepping, variables watch, memory view, etc.
- When you place curson on label it gives you tip about address in memory.
- Memory outline gives you information about location of all labels in memory
- Solution/projects management.
- Cycles used by instruction given on left side of editor (near line number).
- Build configurations with predefined symbols (conditional compilation).
- Easy setup - just point where x64sc.exe is located and voila...
- Endurion is always helpfull and available to talk about improvements (full support).

What I dislike:
- No possibility to compile without IDE
- White color of background is burning my eyes

I've tested the latest test build you uploaded and now x64sc.exe is properly launched and my little test program runs:

Determined D:\projects\c64studio-test\main.asm as active document
Running build on D:\projects\c64studio-test\main.asm
Build successful, 0 warnings, 0 errors encountered
Start address $0801 to $0818, size 24 bytes
Compiled to file D:\projects\c64studio-test\main.prg, 26 bytes
Running D:\projects\c64studio-test\main.asm
Could not check emulator version, no ProductVersion tag was found, assume VICE > 3.2Calling C:\vice\x64sc.exe with -moncommands "C:\Users\compyx\AppData\Local\Temp\tmpF721.tmp" +truedrive -virtualdev "D:\projects\c64studio-test\main.prg"
Run exited with result code 0


Yay! :)

Awesome, thanks for testing!

@DKT: There is a command line assembler, C64Ass. In the release folder along with a (very very brief) readme.

You can also change Colors somewhat (File->Preferences), but it's mostly for the code windows.
