Can you enable fexcept and provide a crashdump log?
And also try this in latest Far build, I can't reproduce this.

I'll try...

Hmm... where can I find latest x64 FExcept? It seems to be only available in the x86 package.

I could reproduce it in the x86 version as well. Happens already when renaming a 137-char-long directory to a 138-char-long directory - the length of the full name is important like "C:\User\myname\test\this and that\..."

How to enable FExcept in x86 version? Techinfo.txt says it's enabled by default. But I always get the Exception occured dialog with no message like generating log file.

Can you provide full source/target path that crashes your system ?

far.exe /import FExcept\SetFarExceptionHandler.farconfig

@alexy: Doesn't work. Starting from within a running instance I can't see any error message. It just quits immediately with that parameter.

@2useven10: Being in "C:\Users\abcd\Downloads\Dies ist ein ganz langer Test eines Verzeichnisnamens"
renaming another dir "bug" to "bugs" works fine.
Renaming "bugs" to "bug" chrashes Far.

It doesn't crash for me.

It should quit immediately, the important thing is to run it from the folder where far is installed and verify that you actually have FExcept\SetFarExceptionHandler.farconfig there.
Then (and this is only for the x86 version) when far crashes it should generate a crash log in %farlocalprofile%\CrashLogs

You have to run it like "far /import:FExcept\..." with a colon.

Any way, now here's the crash log.

I ensure it that it doesn't need to be run with a colon, and doesn't work that way in any case. But nevermind, will have a look at the log.

Should be fixed in 3410.

Thank you! Will try this as soon as the binary becomes available.

But I can also confirm "/import file" does not work where as "/import:file" did the trick (currently using build 3402).

Can you shed some light on what was wrong causing the crash?

administrator   bugnote:0010990

the import works, you just needed to restart far.
/import: just started a new copy of far and that is why you though it worked.

Anyway, there was a bug in updating the tree cache file. That is why we couldn't reproduce it because we don't really use the tree feature.

I can't produce a crash with 3410 right now... great, thank you very much!
