So I did a test last night, without DF installed the system did not reboot, I've gone back to 9.4 I'll let it run tonight see if I get the login screen in the morning.

On the secondary taskbar sometimes the font for time and date is to large and the year slids of the right hand side of the taskbar

Did a reinstall of base 9.4, system did not reboot last night

Updated to 9.4.3 today, will see what happens tonight

This issue with the wrong font for date and time is still happening, it I logoff and back on it fixes it

Well I did install 9.4.3 today, I just took a GSOD "System Thread Exception not handled"

Do you need anything of my system to confirm this issue ?

I've uploaded a jpg of the secondary taskbar, you can see the running icons on the left are blank the date is truncated on the right

Happy new year

The clock text will look like that if the scaling level has changed. Windows doesn't update all system elements when the scaling level changes, so a sign-out/in is needed for them to reload.

I'll do some testing with the latest insider build next week to see if I can reproduce the crashes as well.

Thanks!

I took 9.4.3 out, I'm on plain 9.4 on 18309.1000 from yesterday, system is really stable, no crashes at all

Thanks for the update! I've got 9.4.3 installed in 18309.1000 and no issues so far. If you look in the C:\Windows\minidump folder, are there any files there?

Hi, Just updated to 18312, I've reinstalled DF 9.4.3. I also have a displaylink USB 3 Docking station, not sure if it's causing some issues. Will let you know how the test goes

Hi, It crashed over night again with DF9.4.3 installed, no folder called minidump. I know it's weird but if I go back to 9.4 I will not reboot.

Ok, thanks! Is there a file called "MEMORY.DMP" in the C:\Windows folder?

No file by that name, do I have to turn on the dump file option ?

I took a GSOD yesterday after reinstalling 9.4, I took 9.4 out yesterday and I ran all night without a reboot.
I'm not sure when I did the update to the latest DisplayLink software, I'll try to find the old drivers and reinstall, this one does the video, ethernet, sound and USB through the USB port on my Lenovo MiiX 700.
Probably fighting a permutaion and combination issue on the latest Windows build here.
Joys of a beta tester, I still like the DisplayFusion taskbar better than the Windows 10 one
Thanks

Yeah, it's hard to track these things down sometimes. I'm surprised that there aren't any memory dumps. If you go to Windows Settings, search for "System" and open the System control panel, then Advanced System Settings > Startup and Recovery > Settings, what's the drop-down for debugging set to?

Hi, See the attached, I've removed 9.4 rebooted, installed 9.4 again. System has been running fine for about 4 hours now. WE will see what happens overnight.

Have a great weekend

Thanks! So it is setup to create memory dumps, interesting that they aren't there. That to me suggests that the system may be hard rebooting instead of blue screening.

How did it go over the weekend?

Joys of being a beta tester :-)

It's running 18312 DF 9.4 DisplayLink 9.0.1651.0, has been up all weekend

It's a 64Bit install of Windows 10, both of my 32 bit installs of 18312 are totally crap desktop justs locks up tight, I took one back to 18305 and it's working fine.

First time I built an ISO from the UUP, fun stuff

Haha, yep! If you update to 9.4.3 again and it reboots over night, could you check the Windows Event Logs and see if there's anything there about DisplayFusion or the .NET Framework crashing, or anything related to hardware issues at all?
