SikuliX 1.1.4: "System.out is broken" fatal error

Asked by Ron Turrentine on 2018-08-28

This problem is in Windows 10.

If I press ALT-SHIFT-C to break out of a running script in the 1.1.4 IDE, I receive this fatal error:

"System.out is broken (console output)!
You will not see any message anymore!
Save your work and restart the IDE!"

This happens every time. Is this a bug, or should I break out a script differently in 1.1.4?

Here is a link to the screenshot of the error:

I have to look into it - but only next week.

Until then: do not use Alt-SHIFT-C

instead try the hotkey feature.

Thanks Raiman. I've since found that this "Fatal Error" is being thrown in 1.1.3 as well.

This may be due to the fact that I'm now using Windows 10 (a corporate wide upgrade, unavoidable).
I never saw this behavior in Windows 7.

Best regards,

Ok, thanks for the info.

I guess, I will find the cause next week asap.

Can you help with this problem?
