Felix release

Felix version 1.4.1 released

I’ve just released Felix version 1.4.1. The main new feature of this version is error logging and reporting in Felix and the three Office add-ins (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint).

Download the latest version.

If you experience a structured exception while using Felix, you can now send a log file and a binary dump of the error, which will allow me to pinpoint exactly where in the code the error occurred.

While using Felix, if a “structured windows exception” occurs, an “Error Report” dialog will appear.

Enter a brief description of what action you were performing when the error occurred, and then click Send.

If you’re using MS Outlook as your email program, the following dialog may appear:

If it does, click Yes

An email then pops up. Check the body text, and then send it.

If you’d like to make sure that the error reporting feature works, then there’s a “secret” shortcut that will generate an error for testing purposes. Contact me if you’d like to know it.
