Are you able to run FileZilla in a debugger to get a stack trace?

comment:2 by Meyfarth, 9 years ago


I have to admit that I don't know how to proceed. I'm the administrator of my computer so I can install pretty much anything I need. Could you please tell me how to run FileZilla in a debugger? Which debugger should I get ?

Thank you

I am not a Windows developer, so I do not know. Maybe someone else does, so I leave this open.

Yes, I do... How can I give you more info about it?

comment:6 by Alexander Schuch, 9 years ago

For now, it is enough to know that latest FileZilla does not fix the problem for you. The task regarding debugging FileZilla still should be done, but again, I am still not a Windows developer.

Please rename the %APPDATA%\FileZilla directory (do not delete, we might need the files later). Does FileZilla still crash?

If it no longer crashes: I would need the files for analysis
If it still crashes: Delete the new %APPDATA%\FileZilla directory and rename the old one back.

Operating system version: Vista Familial Edition SP1Windows XP SP3

I have the same problem.
I found that renaming the file crshhndl.dll FileZilla stop crashing on exit.
For me the file crshhndl.dll is on %ProgramFiles%\TortoiseGit\bin
but some times is on TortoiseSvn

FileZilla Client Version: 3.7.3
Operating system: Windows XP SP3

Can't help you anymore on this subject. I got a new computer with Windows 7, it doesn't crash anymore.

Thanks for the help,
