Crash with ReadBytes + length + Windows GUI Oo

ehmm.. Hi...
I'm a little bit confused. Because today i used this code:

Import MaxGui.Drivers
Import MaxGUI.MaxGUI

Local file:TStream=WriteFile("test123.txt")
Local mop:Byte[]
file.ReadBytes(mop,"TEXT 123 TEXT".length) '<- 3 Spaces with "TEXT NUMBER TEXT" = Crash Oo

Print "Create Window"
Local window:TGadget=CreateWindow("My Canvas",wx,wy,300,300)
Print "OK"
Local canvas:TGadget=CreateCanvas(0,0,320,240,window)

Well.. In Debug Modus the code works fine. But in the Normal Modus (only "Build GUI App") it crashed. The console just displayed: "Create Window" and then it crashed. But! It's JUST the "TEXT 123 TEXT".length Oo I don't understand why. When I change the Text, the app works... And very strange: when I change the text to "TEXT 123 TEXT1", then Bmax sad: "EXCEPTION_ILLEGAL_INSTRUCTION"

I don't know why. Is this maybe my mistake?


Sorry for my bad english.

Windows 7 32 Bit Ultimate
3 GB Ram
NVidia 8600GS

EDIT: Ok.. It crash only, when the ReadBytes length is over 12. But why?

You have not allocated any memory for your buffer. Try:

Local mop:Byte[4096]

Ehm... I restarted my PC today and now it works. Maybe a Memory error? But the error occurs only with the MaxGUI functions.

You cannot read bytes to unallocated memory. If you do it will corrupt other variables in your program.

Please consider using the LoadText command.
