Error on line 2: Invalid pointer operation

I just tried running a filter that I made a few weeks ago, but now using TextPipe Standard 8.4.4 it gives an error message.
See attached image.

Here's the filter.

Further information:

The date when my filter last worked OK was 2009-09-12. It would have been done then using TextPipe Standard 8.3.7

This implies that the software update of 8.4 or later is causing this error.

I still have a copy of all the TextPipe setup files, so by re-installing earlier updates, I could investigate further.

Further details: The bug is repeatable, even after Windows Restart.

Further information, confirming what I suspected.

Version 8.3.7 still works OK for my filter. Software bug first appeared with version 8.4 of TextPipe Standard.

Hope you can find and fix this soon.

Hi David - please email me the filter ASAP. I suspect you're using the search/replace list filter but the export doesn't show that.
