A brand new bug has raised its head. A number of times when launching the exe file from ExeOutput it will paint the window frame and stop. Most of the times the inside is simply a pale blue but on occasion (like this moment) the entire content pane is transparent. When this happens (either) it leaves a ghost process running that must be closed via monitor.
The exe is then unable to be launched successfully. I’ve tried just relaunch and recompiling, dropping ExeOutput and it takes a number of attempts (without recompile) before the application will launch successfully.
One minor bright note, ExeOutput now remembers which monitor it was on at close. The executable still doesn’t.
Done, all drivers are current. No change. Like I said, it worked perfectly until update. Problems started with no change on my side at all.
Loading characteristics are:
Most times it will flash a pale blue window w/ no content.
Fewer times it will launch successfully.
Fewer times still it will launch w/ transparent window.
Viewing the monitor:
When there’s a successful launch, two subordinate processes and all close out successfully on exit.
When there’s a failed launch, two subordinate and an additional process appears. When this happens the duplicate stays in the background and must be closed manually. On rare occasions, two processes have to be closed manually.
Nothing special will occur. It’s just an old version of our virtualization system. It’s less optimized that the current one, but in your case, it seems to help. Do you think you could share the faulty EXE file with us, so that we can track what could happen?
I have had this same exact problem, only difference is I only recently bought this software so I didn’t have the experience that it used to work right. Anyway I tried checking the “Legacy virtual file system” like you stated, and that seems to work. I have tested it on 3 different computers and so far it has not failed to launch yet. Thanks so much. I am getting ready to deliver my product to the customer, are there any issues with selecting that checkbox that I should be aware of? Thanks so much
Same here. It has become worse as of late and had just excepted it “just the way it is”. Was going to try the Legacy virtual file system option but now my software is in trial mode even though activate maintenance…
There is no problem nor reason not working with the legacy file system, except maybe an application a bit slower. Obviously, something is wrong in the new one for some customers and we’re investigating.
