2017 Crash : (when Flip Door + Reset Plugins) EDIT : Spaces crashing


I have a problem with my Doors in my file.


I have 2 overlapping (!) Doors in a Wall.

1 Slider Door + 1 Framed Door to get a Frame for the Wall Opening.

Both are "Styled" Doors (!)



As I activated Door Labels and saw them overlapping I thought I could just "flip" the Framed Door

to "mirror" the Label this way.

I realized that VW 2017 will crash each time I try to do so.


So i thought, fine, I found a real bug and copied one of these Walls with its Doors in Wall into a

new file to bug report. Unfortunately when I tried, VW will not crash doing same in the simple

demo file.



So I thought it might be time for the typical "Reset Plugins".

Unfortunately VW 2017 will crash each time I try to do so.

VW will not crash doing same in the simple demo file.



I will attach the non-crashing Demo File here first for illustration.

The real File would be 90 MB or 70 MB zipped.

As the Crash Report implies, it's not about the Doors,

it is about my Spaces.


When I tried to import my Spaces Layer into a new File VW crashes.

When I try to do any changes to Spaces by OIP VW crashes.


When I delete my Spaces and purge the Space "Special Record Formats",

VW does even perform a "plugin reset" again without crashing.



The only thing that I notice in my Spaces that they use a Story Level that does no more exist for

upper extension in 3D Net.

I had similar Plugin Failures when I deleted Classes in use with the replace with other Class option.



I am not amused to have to create my Spaces from scratch now,

and am pretty annoyed that regularly some or other Plugins will go corrupt over time.

I had Spaces going nuts a few times, also Doors.

Here is a Demo File with only my Spaces.


For me it crashes if I try to change that one no-more-existing Story Level for one or more of the Spaces in OIP.

According to Computerworks, my Spaces do not crash in the german release of VW.

But the Crash for the international VW was confirmed.
