Unhandled exception

Hi folks,

I just added about 20 questions to an existing quiz file. On the last question the software issues an error message pertaining to an unhandled exception and then closed.

Is there a chance that the verbiage for those questions is captured in a temporary file that the program generates for just this sort of occurrence?

Hi Ferg,

Sorry to hear you lost data. There's no deliberate attempt made by QW to keep a temporary file with the questions, however there is a cache directory that keeps the preview of the questions, you'd likely be able to read the text in the files from there.

Here's what you'll need to do -

1. Find the directory, it'll have a name like,
C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Local\Question Writer Corporation\Question Writer 4.2\Cache

2. Add the file extension '.swf' to the files.

3. You should be able to then open the files in a .swf viewer, or directly in Chrome and some other browsers.
