New crash in SuperScan

I am using the fixed v3.2. Used by itself, Superscan Clicks works fine, but I have had several software crashes when I have tested a filter, canceled it, and then started SuperScan Clicks. Has anyone else seen this?

I've not had any other reports of this but I'll try and fix it in the next release which id due shortly.

Is it possible to give a definite sequence of steps that consistently causes the crash? This would make it very much easier to track down the cause.

This is repeatable (for me):
1) open wav file
2) Autoscan runs (many clicks, no tracks found, corrections auto-generated)
3) Select Waveform/Filters
4) Click Test...
5) Click End Tests
6) Cancel the Filters panel
7) Select Waveform/Superscan Clicks
8) Start the scan.

(If I skip steps 4-5-6 there is no problem.)

I then get an exception report from Windows XP (SP2), which I allow to send an error report to Microsoft. I can capture the error file generated by Windows and send it to you, or do you wish to get it from Microsoft?

Thanks for that. It made it very easy to track down the cause of the problem - a progress control was not being deleted properly on exit from the Test Filter dialog. It is now fixed and the fix will be included in the beta version to be released later this week.

Thanks again for bringing this to my attention.
