The Bug Reports Section  


What is an Bug?

In this section you can report your bug. Maby ptokax created an error dialog, or even an crashreport. Post as much information about your bug.
What is also very helpfull if you try to recreate your bug so you know exactly under which conditions the error takes place.

Also please include the relevant (probably latest) entry from your exceptioninfo.txt file.
Be so kind, and please start a new topic if possible.
Also make sure you are using the latest version, because those may have this bug fixed (changelog for PtokaX is at the wiki.)

Please tell what triggered the bug if you can.

Thanks!

Everything could have been anything else and it would have just as much meaning.

As the newer versions of PtokaX run on different platforms, please add information describing your operating system when reporting an issue. Some issues might only occur on a specific operating system, or with a specific PtokaX version.
Here's some examples of possibilities

  • PtokaX 0.4.1.1 GUI on Win2000 SP4
  • PtokaX 0.4.1.1 service on Vista
  • PtokaX 0.4.1.1 64-bit service on WinXP x64
  • PtokaX 0.4.1.1 on Linux 2.6


Providing this information will speed up the process of getting it fixed and can prevent common replies such as "it works here, what are you actually using?"
Information about active scripts can also help.
