Juce application used to run but won't any longer


#1

I got my JUCE application building and running correctly on the Mac. Everything was fine yesterday, however today when I try to run the application I get the error message:
“The application ‘app name’ quit unexpectedly.
Mac OS X and other applications are not affected.
Click Reopen to open the application again. Click Report to see more details or send a report to Apple”

I haven’t change anything in my XCode project, and other Juce apps that are on this system get the same error.

Does anyone have any idea what could be going on?


#2

impossible to tell from this…

Are you doing “build and go” from within Xcode and using the debug build? A crash like this should then go into the debugger.


#3

I was doing the release build and running it from Finder.

I have since done a Debug build, which debugged correctly, so I switched it back to the Release build and it is working correctly now. Weird.

On another note, is there any easy way to rename the executable of a Mac .app?


#4

…probably just needed to force something to recompile.

Try clean building the project and if you can post the crash report


#6

I got things working now. It seems that I have to do a successfull build of the debug build before it will create an executable that will run with the release build.

I had tried doing a full clean before building.

Thanks for the tips everyone, I’m guessing it will take me a quite a while to become completely familiar with the ins and outs of the Mac build environment.


#7

Xcode can be wired at times, but I am very confident that debug and release builds are not related, because it builds all the files again.


#8

Make sure you clean both targets. I find that, if juce has changed, you need to clean and rebuild your whole app.
