Issue with latest FB8 release builds: ProcessInitialStepMode - first action is nil

bug

(Bram Doornbos (Prime Vision B.V.)) #1

Hello VSoft,

We currently face a major issue with latest FB8 builds on our build environment. We do have to upgrade because of Delphi 10.3 support.

Our projects work with a common wrapper FinalBuilder script to support different build environments.
Unfortunately when a target in a subscript has all actions disabled, we get a stack-trace like visible in the log added below.

This issue as we know is present in the FB800_2516.exe and FB800_2523.exe builds.

Please can you help us out as we do have to many projects that rely on this to work as before.
The version not having this issue we had previously installed: FB800_2281.exe

With kind regards / Met vriendelijke groet,

Bram Doornbos

Hi Bram

Thanks for the report, we are able to reproduce the problem here, and we’re testing a fix for this now.


(Vincent Parrett) #3

Hi Bram

This build should resolve the problem.

https://downloads.finalbuilder.com/downloads/finalbuilder/800/FB800_2530.exe


(Bram Doornbos (Prime Vision B.V.)) #4

Thanks Vincent.

We are currently testing with it.


(Bram Doornbos (Prime Vision B.V.)) #5

Thanks for resolving this.

We can confirm that the problem is fixed within this build.
Is this build ready for operational use or should we wait for an official release?

Best regards,

Bram Doornbos


(Vincent Parrett) #6

It’s fine to use, the only difference between it and the last release build is the bug fix.


(Bram Doornbos (Prime Vision B.V.)) #7

Thanks again Vincent.
I consider this one closed from my perspective.

Best regards,

Bram Doornbos
