FS#11553 - UISimulator:

Current Build: r27822 and windows version under Windows XP SP3

Whenever I change a theme in the options it works for the current session. Closing the simulator and restarting leads to a crash. Only if I delete the config.cfg file in the rockbox directory then it works again but I lose my last configuration.

Some tests later I found out that a definition of an info viewport in the base skin leads to the crash. Deleting the info viewport definition and everything's working fine. All delivered base skins in rockbox do not define any info viewports but if you take any other skin with an info viewport in the base skin they will crash…

As an example you might take the AF_Flow theme and only load the Without deleting the info viewport the simulator crashes… It seems to me that this crash did not happen 2 months ago with the past current releases.

This was fixed with r27829

This problem was fixed with r27829. If you are using a simulator download from Rasher's simulator page, you will need to wait until the page is updated with new versions. He usually has daily updates, but there are some days that do not get new updates.

As a work-around, until a newer simulator version is available, you can create a fixed.cfg file in your simdisk/.rockbox directory containing the following line:

sbs: -

This will allow the simulator to start without crashing. Once the simulator is started, you can then reload your SBS (or entire theme).

No the new release is online and it does not crash anymore. Thanks - the task can be closed now.
