Re: 26 or more candidates fails to build AVTS database

I have tracked down this problem.  When using BallotStation 3.x version the maximum candidate ID is 255. In this database the 26th candidate has Id 260. Changing the Id to 251 fixes the problem.

Hi Dmitry,


I would normally send this out to support or bugtrack, however I'm in a extreme hurry and have been pulling my hair out trying to solve this problem.  The problem occurs within Ballot Station.  I have 1 race, 1 precinct.  The 1 race has 28 candidates.  The problem is if I only put in 25 candidates everything is fine, but when I try to put 26 or more candidates this is what happens:


Election transfers OK, then when it starts to build the database I receive these errors:


Exception....hit OK


Build Election Failed.....hit OK


Exception in Ballot Station

Build Database Failed.....Hit OK


Then back to desktop to receive this Dr. Watson error:

An application error has occurred




The client has R4's all with loaded.  Attached is the EBS error I receive when it crashes and also attached is the test database I was using. Password is xxx.
