Ways to upset CodeWarrior #2378936905023:
Put a CD in the drive, then take it out and try to compile.

Quote:
---------------------------
LHintAttachment: IDE.EXE - No Disk

There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive D:.
---------------------------
Cancel Try Again Continue
---------------------------
NO SHIT? Now I can't compile till I put a disk in the drive, or I reboot.

So brb. Reboot.

Completely unrelated. It was an audio CD. CodeWarrior apparently decided to notice that there was a CD in and then spaz out whenever I try to compile.

Today It's crashed SEVEN times. Admittedly, 4 of them were trying to get it to do the same thing (Build -> Clean = crash apparently), but that's not the point...

Haha, I love your on-going tales from the Codewarrior trenches. Sounds like a pretty shitty IDE and compiler based purely on your comments. I almost had to use CW for some Symbian development a year or two back but thankfully Nokia had ditched it a month before I tried it out.

Have you considered that the CW compiler might've wanted to listen to some tunes whilst compiling?

I should mount my D drive as a network drive and then run a packet sniffer to find out what the hell it's trying to do. It happens when you put any CD in the drive (I haven't tried just opening and closing the drive).

I used to have a list of "Ways to crash codewarrior", but then I changed PCs at work and forgot to copy it. I should re-start that list. In fact, if - sorry, when - it crashes tomorrow I'll post a new entry and start the list again.

heh - CodeWorrier was one of (several) reasons I got out of mobile phone programming a few years back :P (Symbian as mentioned above)
Only about 1 in 10 programmers then had anything good to say about it...
