54494 - Stdin in console apps on Windows still does not work on Windows

Feedback Case Number: 54494

54494 - Stdin in console apps on Windows still does not work on Windows now 4 years later.

Bug is archived.

  1. Please reopen it.
  2. How can this be ?? Xojo is selling Console as feature, and what are you supposed to do with Console apps if StdIn does not work ?

So what exactly is supposed to be the process for the ‚ÄúSwept under the carpet bugs‚ÄĚ that were marked as Archived ?.

This one for example is.

As far as I know there is nothing in Feedback to help me get it back to open state (I think ??’)

And posting here seems to do nothing at all, at least my post was 100% ignored and the issue is still archived.

PS. On this bug then you lost customer and had to refund at least one license back then, and I lost a customer as well since I was not quick enough to port it for them to C# when it was clear this was completely broken in Xojo. And your about to loose another now since I cannot help them ! All those years, and this bug has not even been looked at. And it makes Console applications more or less useless unless your doing something very limited with them that only takes parameters and nothing else.

You can request that a case be re-opened just click on the status and choose reopen.

I logged 59101 two years ago as stdin.ReadAll did not work on MS-Windows.
