Description Rob Sherratt 2012-01-04 02:57:54 CET
Under Windows 7 64 bit (not Windows NT)

Fantasia attempts to invoke GigEdit via LinuxSampler, passing a filename for the sound that is to be edited.  However the filename that Fantasia passes is in Windows format, not Linux format.  There are other circumstances where Fantasia also passes filenames to LinuxSampler in Windows file format.

Linux Sampler then crashes and fails to recover from the problem in parsing filenames containing "/" characters denoting subdirectories instead of "\" characters.

There is a fundamental mismatch between Windows format filenames and Linux format filenames, and there should be a compile time option in Linux Sampler to select the appropriate file system format for the OS target on which Linux Sampler is to be deployed.

Looks like that this is not a Windows related bug, but recently introduced one occurring on all platforms.
Should be fixed now.
