SLOPE/W SOLVE Crashes When Using 8 Significant Digits


SLOPE/W SOLVE can crash in rare cases when your problem geometry points use 8 significant digits for all points (e.g., a point coordinate of (102.43957, 3.1415927)).


This problem typically occurs when importing a geometry from a DXF file or when drawing your regions and points without first turning on the background grid.


To work around this problem, use a background grid before drawing your points and regions, or round your point coordinates before importing them.
GEO-SLOPE has confirmed this to be a bug in the applications and versions listed above. It has been fixed in version 7.15. Download a free Service Pack to upgrade to the latest version.
