Author/Date Opening PDF attachment crashes Scribe
21/12/2007 3:30pm
When trying to open PDF attachments Scribe crashes. It could be a problem with how Acrobat Reader is installed on my machine, so if you're unable to duplicate the problem please disregard this message.

To Duplicate:
1) Open an email that has a PDF attachment
2) Go to the Attachments tab
3) Double click on the file

When the file is double clicked on, it generates a stack dump. The following stack dump was created using InScribe v1.90 Test1 Debug on Windows XP. Adobe Acrobat Reader v.8.1.1 is doing the PDF handling.

The same happens when trying to open attached jpg's or gif's, either ones that arrive attached or ones that I try to send - and this in both 1.89test22 or test21.

According to that log the crash is inside ShellExecute...

Status = (int) ShellExecuteW(NULL, L"open", f, a, d, 5);

So technically it's windows code :)

I'll try and reproduce it locally.
