Origin Version: 8.6.0 64-bit SR1 b97 Student Version
(just upgraded from 8.5.1 SR2 b315 Student Version)
Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit

Hello,

I've had the problem that all of my LabTalk scripts suddenly stopped working upon upgrading to the newest version of Origin. I've pinned this down to the comments. If comments are present, nothing works. If I take the comments out, it works. These were all working scripts that I would use in the Command Window for the previous version.

I've only tried this on the new 64bit Origin since the 32bit version won't run for me (get an error saying "can't start because MSVSR100.dll is missing." It's not missing; it's in C:\Windows\System32).

Also, restarting the computer didn't help. I've seen that suggested here before.

Thanks for any help/insight!

Hi, Kipp

Could you send file to tech support so we can investigate.

Here is how to send your file:

Thanks Echo.

I'll send the file later this evening when I have more time.

Really, no file is needed though. This happens for me in the Command Window with the following:

>>// COMMENT
number = 100;
number = ;
>>number=
>>

At this point the Messages Log pops up with:

[2/10/2012 12:44:44]
Undefined variable: NUMBER

If instead I take out the comment:

>>number = 100;
number = ;
number=100
>>

And there is no error from the Messages Log.

Thanks again.

Hi, Kipp

Thank you for reporting the problem. This is a bug in Origin 86. We will fix it soon.

As a workaround in 86, you can use script window for your Labtalk scripts. (Select Window:Script Window in Origin menu to open the script window)
