Possible bug with ECL IDE & clipboard

Topics specific to the use of the ECL IDE

Fri Sep 22, 2017 10:42 am Change Time Zone

I am using
- ECL IDE 6.4.2-rc1
- Client Tools 5.6.4-1
- HPCC Server 5.6.4-1

When I run some long workunits I usually keep programming in ECL IDE (or other apps). I have found that randomly (but pretty often) ECL IDE replaces the content of clipboard with this:
Code: Select all
cd C:\Users\foleyo\AppData\Local\Temp\
C:\Program Files (x86)\HPCCSystems\5.6.4\clienttools\bin\eclcc.exe -showpaths

It happens only when I am running a workunit and it happens several times during its execution. Other members of my team have the same problem. It is disruptive because it affects my copy&paste.

As a general good practice, Windows Applications should avoid affecting clipboard...

A perfect example of the type of issue that should be reported in JIRA ( against the ECL IDE ;)
