Rainmeter crashes when QuotePlugin.dll encounters 0KB file

Post by overlayed »

In my case it was a 0KB text file. Very reproducible. Happens every time.

Yes it does. I have already reported it I believe, I haven't added it to the sticky post yet, sorry.

This one needs to be fixed as a medium to high priority... If folks are using a text file with a single line and the QuotePlugin, for instance to have a media player write out the current song title or album art, they are going to have to be VERY careful how they replace the line so Rainmeter doesn't catch it in "mid replace" and crash. It would be easy to have happen when Rainmeter is looking at the file once a second by default.

Actually it appears to handle the song changing fine, even with a one second update.

The problem should be fixed in r103.
