I'm just using Notepad++, also professionally. Sometimes, the only kind of "debugger" available is an oscilloscope, attached to some I/O pin of the microcontroller. In very difficult cases, not even that because it alters the timing. Then it's the Chuck Norris way - staring at the code and forcing it to confess.

I installed CB 16.01 again. There was no difficulty in rebuilding a project a few times. So I shall continue with this till the problem reappears. It may be relevant that my laptop has 4 GB of memory and quite a few other windows were open when CB crashed.

I also get this error when opening my project:

Some of the properties associated with the solution could not be read.

Very accurate warning (not). Which properties?

Out of curiosity,
I download Alfil 15.8 which is known to be a Stockfish derivative in C#, load it with your own project and compile it without an error.

I also had to disable the option "Enable diagnostic tool while debugging" otherwise debugging Skipper interface was really terrible slow.

Reminded me of doing a database exercise thirty years ago with twenty students working simultaneously.

By the way something is more going on. Perhaps downloading updates. For after 22:00 computer is much faster.

They just want you to buy a faster computer. Or they assume you work with best hardware. Probably all these software development tools are not well tested. They are just using us to test their software with these free downloads.

They also write that asp.net mvc is dead and one should use ASP.net core.
Recommending razor pages. So you can spend all your time in learning .net Core and rewriting GUI next months.
