1.1.25 - Deleting factorio.pdb file breaks upgrading.

Post by KindOne »

1, Delete factorio.pdb (Yes, I know what its used for and that I should not delete.)
2, Start factorio (1.1.25 for me)
3, Click "About".
4, Click "Check for updates"
5, Click "Update now"
6, Wait...

Code: Select all

---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
copy_file "C:/Users/User/Desktop/factorio_0.18/bin/x64/Factorio.pdb" to "C:/Users/User/Desktop/factorio_0.18/temp/Factorio.pdb" failed: The system cannot find the file specified.

Factorio.pdb is useful for game crash report, just keep it

Assuming you're deleting it for space... does it also crash if you replace it with a 0 byte file?
