    Angry MSVC++ 6.0 Problem

    Whever I open this workspace for my RPG game, I get an Error Report, and the workspace closes. I find that a lot of times when I run certain code, the program receives an error report and needs to close. Does anybody else that uses MSVC++ 6.0 have this problem?

    I blame MSVC++ for many things but I doubt one of them is what you are describing. I think your program is closing itself.

    No, I get crazy Error reports and program crashes all the time.

    I may have had this problem a few times. I think depending on settings, the program automatically tries to open the last used workspace. If you were working on a program that happened to crash MSVC, then the workspace file may get damaged or there may be a temp version that isn't being automatically deleted like it normally would when you exit MSVC. When you next go to open MSVC, the damaged workspace file can't get opened, or the temp workspace file that wasn't deleted last time is still around and MSVC can't open it. Those are my guesses. Either look for a temp workspace file somewhere in the MSVC directory and delete it before you open up the IDE, or you may have to delete the damaged workspace and recreate it when this happens.

    Try deleting the workspace and creating a new one in its place. It's worked for me in the past.

    I've had that problem, I've even tried reinstalling it when it happened (which didnt work). I finally figured out what was wrong -- the classview information and it listed the same classes thousands of times. Everytime it loaded the file and created the classview it would keep looping and then crash. I ended up just opening my files in notepad and looked around in my code for something that might be wrong. I was missing a brace! Silly, eh?

    So try opening your files in another editor and compile them and see if it says you have any sytax errors. Fix them and then reload your project in msvc++

    Or, you can just ditch msvc++ 6.0 completely because it's a piece of crap
