[Solved!] Flowcode 7.3 compiler error

Postby tiny » Wed Dec 20, 2017 11:32 am

Error messages when compiling an existing project with Flowcode 7.3. Please note, what I should do, that it works with the new version.
The variables declared as errors are text constants that are used several times in the program routines. With FC 7.2.1.4 there were no related error messages.

Thanks
Christina

Hi Christina,
Sorry, it looks like a new bug, such that defines for the string lengths are not being created.
This is a bug that will need to be fixed in the Flowcode executable, unfortunately, due to staff holidays, this isn't going to get fixed until the new year.
A workaround would be to replace all the string constants with text string properties.
Although it looks like you have quite a few to change!

Thank you for your prompt reply. I think I will not change the text constants, there are too many! I will just continue with version 7.2 and wait for the changed FC 7.3.

Thanks again and I wish you and the whole team a Merry Christmas and all the best and much success in the New Year!

Christina

Hello,

We have now hopefully managed to fix the string constants bug in 7.3.

Simply overwrite the executable in the "Flowcode 7" directory with the attached executable and this should solve the problem for you.

http://www.matrixtsl.com/temp/FlowcodeV7.3.0.6.zip

Let us know how you get on.
