I ran into a problem with REAL Studio this week that was annoying. The IDE hard crashed on me and it had tried to save the project (this is a good thing!). When this happens you get a dialog the next time start REAL Studio that says:
“REAL Studio has found unsaved changes from a previous session. Would you like to recover these changes?”
However, in this particular case I didn’t care about the changes so it was no big deal. I clicked No and worked on the project. Usually you never get the message again but I was every time I restarted REAL Studio. Again, not a big deal, but it was annoying.
The fix was relatively simple (thanks to RS staff on this one). On Mac OS X, REAL Studio puts files in the ~User/Library/Application Support/REAL Studio/RB2010 AutoSave Projects/ directory. Sure enough when I looked in that directory there were some files that shouldn’t have been there.
I simply deleted them, restarted REAL Studio and the problem went away. Voila! Hopefully someone else will find this useful.
