IDE Crashes on Exit

Every time I start the IDE.EXE from the command prompte of TCC and then exit, the IDE.EXE crahses before it exits. It seems to be crashing in fedutil.dll. (Even when the fedutil plugin is unloaded)

I tried to generate a crash dump using Sysinternal's PROCDUMP but when PROCDUMP was running in the background, IDE.EXE would seem to go into an infinite loop instead of crashing. If you need it I could get Process Explorer (Sysinternal once again) to force a full or mini dump of IDE.EXE while in this infinite loop state.

What version of Take Command are you using?

It's unlikely that IDE.EXE is crashing in fedutil.dll, since it never loads
it. However, if you've got a debugging session, IDE.EXE will load TCC.EXE,
which will load the plugins in its plugins subdirectory (or as specified in
tcstart). So it's more likely that the crash is in TCC.EXE when unloading
fedutil.dll when IDE.EXE tries to shut down TCC. Try removing fedutil.dll
or renaming it in the plugin directory so it isn't automatically loaded.

Hopefully Federico (the author of fedutil.dll) will chime in here ...

The attached is the version info dumped when it crashed. I'm running:

TCC 12.00.35 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
TCC Build 35 Windows XP Build 2600 Service Pack 3

Even before he does, I looked at the dump sent in the later post, and noticed that the OP is using version 1.0.7 of fedutils.dll which was replaced with 1.0.8, FedUtils8.dll for 4NT v8; the latter works fine here.

Version 1.0.8 doesn't seem to be available. The FedUtils.dll in the plugin downloads is 1.0.7.

I have it available. I can email it to you later today (I am taking my daughter to dentist right now) if you provide me an email address - send it to ESFabian AT comcast DOT net.
