    Language(s) :     C++  ;

    In the process of making my plugins cross platform I have this problem with one plugin:

    After major overhaul (in X Code on the Mac) it works fine on the Mac in R15 and R12.
    I moved the code to Windows 7 compiled there without issues  and both R15 and R12 crash after I try to activate the plugin. The console shows that it installed correctly. But when I select it from the Plugins menu I get the Application Error.

    Since it crashes before the dialog shows I wonder if there is a problem in the resource file (foreign characters?).

    While the Application Error dialog gives me a path to the _bugReports folder (C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming....) in my username folder there is no AppData. Could this be somewhere else or can this be configured? I know where stuff is on MacOS but Windows still has deep mysteries.

    Yikes! I just noticed that the crash happens on MacOS also. Best to ignore (or delete) the original post.

    Have you tried using the Debugger? Imo, the Visual Studio debugger is very easy to use.

    Thanks for the response, Niklas
    I'll try the VS debugger. Windows is still a bit suspect for me.

    But, as I mentioned, when my plugin crashed on the Mac also the error was quickly hunted down. Can't get a Matrix from an non-initialized BaseObject.
