wingrass7 nightly build crash on start

Reported by: MilenaN Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.0.0
Component: Startup Version: svn-trunk

CPU: x86-64 Platform: MSWindows 7

Description

Hi,

wingrass7 behaves in a strange way on start:

  1. It starts in a minimised window, so the user is not sure if anything happened after clicking the grass icon.
  1. When the (windows) user finds eventually the minimised grass window and makes it bigger, the cmd window (!) appears, encouraging him gently to "Hit RETURN to continue" (what on earth RETURN is, the user thinks).
  1. Finally Welcome window appears but no grass database can be found (when grass 64 and 65 have no problem with it on the same pc). Pointed to the path, grass crasches with the following message in cmd:

Please try out more recent build. Still relevant?

Keywords: encoding added
Resolution: worksforme
Status: newclosed

Although, it is hard to say if this encoding error was fixed, no activity and no further reports, so closing this ticket as worksforme, so there are some people here and there running localized GRASS 7 on MS Windows.

Reopen if the the error is the same, create a new one if the error is different. Please try to make ticket summary less general, e.g. use end of the Python traceback (WinGRASS 7 nightly build crash on start with UnicodeDecodeError?). Use {{{ and }}} to separate tracebacks or any other errors from your text in the report. However, thanks for your reports in any form.

Good comment about Hit RETURN to continue, create a ticket for it if you think that it should be changed (and discuss some translation if possible).

I was pretty shocked last year when I was talking some post-grad students through some task and they just looked at me blankly when I said to press the Return key. These kids never saw a typewriter.... No idea how I'd try to explain the difference between \r and \n to them. :)

methinks we need to teach them. ;)

ps- the translation's easy, aka "Enter"

"Enter" is typically printed on the key on the lower-right of the numeric keypad. While that often has the same effect as the Return (down-and-left-arrow) key, it isn't always the case.
