In recent months our build use or rcwintrans9.exe (v9.4.0.9 has become unstable). We upgraded to v9.4.0.76 with the same result.
Some errors are recoverable after a reboot, in other cases an uninstall is needed and a re-install , i.e. running rcwinrans interactively comes up with a popup error.
We use Windows 8.1
We have changed our logic to call RWTCMD.exe more times with less projects. And are trialling a wrapper for RWTCMD.exe to terminate rcwintrans.exe if it is still running to see if we can get stable builds. And use of
/IsProjectUpToDate

So three questions arise :

- is there additional debug other than the log file ? e.g. the rcwintrans output going to log, e.g. Error (95) The file is read only...
- suggestions to make our system stable ?
- Does /IsProjectUpTodate need the arguments ? Without this will it update all projects ?
The help has () around the arguments, so I am not sure if these are optional.

Thanks

Hello Greg,

No. No additional debug/error informations.


2.

Yes. The argument "TargetLangCode" is required.
There is no options to get the information for all target languages at once.



3.

RC-WinTrans uses a large number of COM objects. At least one COM object for each translation unit.
The memory use and the used COM objects increases proportionally with each target language prcessed/load
within one RC-WinTrans session. Most COM objects are not released until the .NET garbage collection (GC)
clears the GC when RC-WinTrans is closed.

Suggestion:
Process only one language at a time/session.
For the command /UpdateAll and /WriteAllTargetFiles do not use /a so RC-WinTrans is closed after the command.
Maybe it is necessary (or a good idea) to wait (delay) a while (e.g ~1 min. it depends) to give the .NET GC the time
to free the memory and therefor to release the COM objects before running the commands for the next target language.

Example :

rem Update for all languages
rem do not use /a so RC-WinTrans is closed when the command is done.
/UpdateAll
rem Wait/delay before the next command will start RC-WinTrans again
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

rem Japanese -- /WriteAllTargetFiles
rem do not use /a so RC-WinTrans is closed when the command is done.
/WriteAllTargetFiles projfilename ja
rem Wait/Delay ~1 min., the next command will start RC-WinTrans again
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

rem Chinese -- /WriteAllTargetFiles 9
rem do not use /a so RC-WinTrans is closed when the command is done.
/WriteAllTargetFiles projfilename zh-chs
rem Wait/Delay ~1 min, the next command will start RC-WinTrans again
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update
Still get intermittent errors though more common now. i.e. we can have a good run for the exactly the same files as the next run which has issues.
Have passed on hints to developers and we are continuing with trials.
NB: We are processing one language at a time

Thus the issue has a "random" characteristic. Memory is good. VMs are configured for 6G
Startup crash call stack is v9.4.076

Outcome - the following changes now work for us :
- build one language at a time
- don't use session 0 (i.e. a scheduled task or TFS build not in "interactive mode"), i.e. build interactively
- close rcwintrans between calls from rwtcmd.exe

Hello Greg,

I want to let you know that we will have a new implementation/solution for the command line.

The new command line will fix the problems you still have/had. The new solution is starting/using the RC-WinTrans
application directly -- not via the command line tool as COM server.


The current command line tool RWTCmd.exe will stay available to use.


The new command line will be available with RC-WinTrans 11 in February/March 2017.
