Auto Recover not working?

I’ve lost a test being written on Windows 11 using latest Xojo 2023 to the date and trusting on the auto-recover.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create a new Desktop project

  • Create the Activate() event for the window there

  • Write those lines to create a busy chaos on activation:

For i As Integer = 1 to 9999999999
  System.DebugLog i.ToString
Next
  • Run. *** At this step, Xojo “creates a recover data”.

  • Try to close the window pressing the red X close button few times on the window title bar.

  • You will be presented a dialog saying the window is unresponsive, choose “close the program” (forced).

  • Xojo will be also busy dead, find it in the Task Bar and choose Close. Confirm as you did before.

Now we have a crash to recover.

  • Rerun Xojo. It will present you a recover option as

image

  • Choose YES

Voilà, you lost your unsaved work.

In this test, those lines:

For i As Integer = 1 to 9999999999
  System.DebugLog i.ToString
Next

It is already reported.

Only previous saved projects can recover. Never saved projects have this problem.

On phone right now. Can’t search for case number

This one?
