With Inform updates in the past, I’ve been relatively lucky in that they have yet to utterly break my projects. Sure there were some things that I would have to update and perhaps some extensions that needed fixing, but for the most part they’ve been worth the effort.
I recently installed 6M62, and there were a few things that needed fixing, mostly due to sloppy coding, like sentences ending in a colon now triggering an error.
But my biggest problem now, the inform 7 compiler is crashing. In the I7 console, I’m getting:
> C:\Program Files (x86)\Inform 7\Compilers\ni \
> -rng -internal "C:\Program Files (x86)\Inform 7\Internal" -project "C:\Users\Lautz\Dropbox\Interactive Fiction\WIPs\BeeHive\inform7-hornetsnest\BeeHive.inform" -format=ulx
> Inform 7 build 6M62 has started.
> I've now read your source text, which is 16489 words long.
> I've also read Standard Rules by Graham Nelson, which is 42655 words long.
> I've also read English Language by Graham Nelson, which is 2297 words long.
> I've also read Small Kindnesses by Aaron Reed, which is 1801 words long.
> Compiler finished with code 10
When I run it from the command line, I get an unhandled exception in NI.exe…looking in the Event Viewer at the entry generated I see this:

To late to diagnose or try to see if it’s reported already. Project is a large project, so have not tried to break it down yet…not sure I really want to…may just drop back a version.
