Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.) by Developers

On this page we have collected some of the most common errors and problems that have been encountered while developing and using this project. This includes compilation errors as well as run-time exceptions.

Compiling issues

Q: It does not compile due to a missing file. What can I do?

A: Please check if the missing file is where it is supposed to be. If it's not there, then file a ticket or tell us in our group chat. This should not happen. However, if it IS there, then check if the total path length of this file (including its name) exceeds 256 characters -- this can happen when you checkout in a very deep directory. If it exceeds this length you have to move the whole source code directory into a less deep directory, such as directly to C:\CT2-Repository\

Runtime issues

Q: I get a FileNotFoundException when trying to run CT2 from Visual Studio 2010. What's wrong?

A: This is a known issue (#146). Simply stop and re-run CT2. The next time it should start without errors.

Q: Is it possible to open a specific workspace (.cte) when I start CT2 so I don't have to open it manually all the time?

A: Sure, just open the CrypWin.exe properties and add the path to your .cte in the Command Arguments section. Don't forget to put your path in quotation marks if it contains spaces.
