    It appears that we've broken the Cirrus' ability to compare files presented on the command line. The Explorer context menu as well as dragging files onto Cirrus is affected.

    I know you depend on the shell extension and I apologize for the inconvenience. We'll try to get this fixed on the weekend.

      No problem, Tim... I am just testing... I won't be doing any real work until Monday.

        It appears the crash is limited to the "optimized build" installed on Vista. I think you'll be ok if you download and install the debug build.

        (Note that for each crash there will be an invisible Cirrus.exe running that needs to be killed by Task Manager. I had 6 of them to get rid of before I could sucessfully install a different build.)

          Thanks, Tim.

          The Vista Machine is my secondary machine. I did not remember that I had an optimized build on it. I've installed the debug build and it seems to be working fine.

            I believe you are right about this this being limited to the optimised build. I installed the latest optimised build on Vista x64 and had a lot of crashes when I tried to compare files from within folder compare sessions. But these problems are not occuring with the debug build.

            best regards,

              I get the same thing with the optimized build on XP SP2, when launching some diffs from within Code Co-op (some are OK, and some are not). Switching to the debug build fixes the problem.

                I get the same crashes. Updating to 451 now.

                  451 seems to have fixed the issue for me.
