Bug? Crash when loading previously working layouts and files

    I have encountered a very strange problem. All of a sudden it seems that the app crashes when it loads a file. This has been verified both for layouts and a file in Files. None of these files have been modified recently and have previously worked just fine.

    I was curious what had happened, in what way that were corrupted. So I took a look at them in TortoiseHg (I use Mercurial) and found that they hadn't changed at all. Very strange. So I opened a layout in the Designer and just did a Save. Back to TortoiseHg to see if that changed anything - it didn't, from Mercurials perspective the file was still identical. However, looking at the file properties, I could see that the Modified timestamp was updated (naturally). Mercurial doesn't track such metadata.

    Back to B4i to try with the re-saved, identical, layout - and now it worked without a flaw.

    From my perspective this is a situation that's simple to fix myself - I just re-save everything and it works. I still felt it was worth reporting. I've also attached the log below, for when a layout caused a crash.

    Might be worth mentioning that I haven't moved the project folder or any files in ages.

    (The file in Files was an mp3 that I fixed by simply duplicating it in Explorer, deleting the old one and changed the name of the duplicate.)

    I occasionally (maybe 2 times in the last month with B4i, and a few times in B4A as well) experience exactly this same problem, with no obvious cause in the integrity or location of the layout file, or with files that "can't be found." It always scares the hell out of me. The solution that always seems to work (keep fingers crossed) is to:
    1. Uninstall the target app on your device
    2. Do Tools > Clean Project
    3. Compile and run again
    Resaving the problem layout file under a different name seems to work too, but usually this has to be done with most of the others as well which is a huge pain. And then there are still "unlocatable" files as well, most of the time.

    Like I said, I think I've experienced this in B4A as well. Maybe it's a Designer issue in common to all products ... that only Erel can figure out ... ;)

    I've been having the exact same issue. Every once in a while when I get up in the morning to begin coding, the newly compiled program which was working the night before and hasn't been changed says it is not able to locate layout files. Different to Sandman, to fix the problem, I save each layout to a new name, delete the old layouts and recompile and then the program works. Not a big deal, but it does take a few minutes, and like Andris, it scares the hell out of me although I'm getting used to it. I was just hoping to find a relatively quick fix here if others had the same issue.

    The only thing I could think is that I have my project files on a thumbdrive and perhaps in some way the link to the files is lost overnight? Seems unlikely, but then, the error is odd as well.

    Here is a part of my log:

    Try to uninstall the app from the device, clean the project and install it again.

    In my previous post I can confirm that this seems to fix it.
