AltSearch: No standard window but a Basic failure message


When I click on the AltSearch icon, instead of the usual window popping open, I have another window with lines in Basic and a message “Basic execution error” (translated from the French “Erreur d’exécution BASIC”).

Same problem with Libreoffice 6.0 and;
Windows 10;
I sent an email to Tomas Bilek, listed as Author on AltSearch page, but no answer.

Many thanks for your help

What’s last version you had it working? Could you edit your question and include that lines in Basic?

I have hit the same problem, running AltSearch 1.4.2 on LO (x64) on Windows 7.
Problem is in My Macros & Dialogs.AltSearch.fromTools.LoadDialog_ - that function starts

Function LoadDialog_(Libname as String, DialogName as String, Optional oLibContainer)
Dim oLib as Object
Dim oLibDialog as Object
Dim oRuntimeDialog as Object
If IsMissing(oLibContainer ) then
oLibContainer = DialogLibraries
End If
oLibContainer.LoadLibrary(LibName) <<<< This is the line marked

Rest of function:

oLib = oLibContainer.GetByName(Libname)
oLibDialog = oLib.GetByName(DialogName)
oRuntimeDialog = CreateUnoDialog(oLibDialog)
LoadDialog_() = oRuntimeDialog

End Function

Error message is
BASIC runtime error.
An exception occurred
Message: .

I comment do attract more attention to this. Maybe someone could try to contact author of AltSearch, or somebody on developer’s mailing list know how to fix this?

Same error here. OS X 10.9.5, Libreoffice, JaveRE Oracle 1.8.0_20, AltSearch 1.4.2
I would even be able to pay a bill for fixing this, working for a non-profit organisation that is interested in the quality of free and open source software.
