Post Bugs on Graphical Robot Virtual Worlds - VEX 4.x Software
Every time I try to compile and download a file on to the virtual robot, the program glitches and the software closes. What should I do? I was thinking to re-download the software. I am using Windows 8.

Hi,

Are you using the RBG files that are in the curriculum, or are these files that you are creating on your own? If the latter, double check to make sure that your compiler target is Virtual Robot and the Virtual World you have chosen is the Challenge Pack for VEX IQ.

Yeah, same thing happens to me. It seems like that every time I try to compile and run a program, the software crashes. I know that I'm running RBG files, so I don't know what's the problem. What should I do?

I had reported the same problem in the second week of the course. I still get this happening but I have found that if I save the program first, file>save as> folder, it seems to help. It usually happens two or three times then works itself out. Not sure if it is a conflict with win 8 or something else.

Sorry to hear that the software is giving you trouble. As was suggested, after opening an RBG file from the curriculum, try doing a "File > Save as..." before compiling and downloading the program, or try starting a new file in ROBOTC. We are finalizing an update which should resolve these issues for you. Thanks for reporting the issue and for your patience as we correct it!

Please send a message to support@robotc.net and reference this post. We will send you a direct link to the preview build of ROBOTC that should resolve this for you. Thanks!

I also see RobotC hangs/crashes:
I'm running Win7 x86, and I see occasional crashes of RobotC (v4.10 with ChallengePack v108), esp when accessing the drop-down controls for Graphical functions (ex: waitUntil trying to access the gyroSensor). When it happens the UI is totally hung and I need to manually kill the RobotC process and restart it. It will usually work the next try. I've submitted the issue per the forum instructions. Thanks, Scott
