  • Front Panel Designer 4.0 Crashes



    After running Front Panel Designer 4.0 installation, I find that anytime I try to modify a panel created in 3.5 version the 4.0 application crashes.


    This is a repeatable crash that happens everytime I try making changes. I have tried this on another PC and get the same problem.


    I am running Windows 7, 64 bit on an HP Pavilion computer.


    Here is the application crash information as reported by Windows:

    Hello Ted,


    We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your crash report.


    We are planning to release version 4.01 soon (within May). It will include bug fixes reported from different operating systems.


    Thanks again and let us know if you need help with old 3.5 files. We can save them in 4.0 for you so that you can work with them.

    I checked with out software developer regarding the 4.0 crash. They need the 3.5 file that caused the problem for further testing.


    Can you please send it to me (


    Thank you
