DisplayFusion 4.0 force closing...

I updated to version 4.0 and now it force closes all the time. I see BEX64 error - which relates to Buffer Overflow error. Please let me know what I can do to figure out the problem. It was working fine in the previous version. Thanks,

Thanks for letting us know! We're currently working on this issue and we'll hopefully have a fix for the next beta version.

Looking forward to a fix for this.
I am getting an message saying Displayfusion has stopped working and must close with no explanation. It has happened a few times now.

Could you guys give the newly released 4.0.1 Beta 2 a try from the link below? We've hopefully gotten these hanging/crashing issues fixed up now.

Thanks!

Installed the Beta 4.0.1 Beta 2 - looks like it's still force closing. Will try it a bit more. Thanks,

Just a quick update, there was another issue in 4.0.1 Beta 2, so we've just released 4.0.1 Beta 3 with that issue fixed as well. If you could try Beta 3 and let me know how it goes, that would be fantastic

Thanks!

Still force closing - actually quite frequently today after installing Beta 3. Thanks.

Just updating - I found that DisplayFusion was crashing but DisplayFusionAppHook was still lingering behind. I manually killed that and restarted DisaplyFusion. Looks to be stable for the last 45 minutes. Thanks.

Not sure if I am not using a feature that was causing the crash for chakras but I have had no problems so far with Beta3
Good Work Thanks.

Good Work Thanks.


Yep - I think it was because after I installed I did not restart (I am always asked for a restart - but I will cancel it) - never caused a problem. Apparently the hook wasn't removed and App was using the old DisplayFusionHook? Maybe that is the reason it was crashing more often. After I killed that process and started DisplayFusion again, things looked a lot more stable. I didn't see a single crash

Not sure what the issue is - it is still crashing. It was good yesterday. Again, it is failing frequently today.

May have something to do with full screen application. I was not watching anything full screen today - and DisplayFusion only crashed once. FYIP. Thanks.

Ok, would you be able to do the following?
  • Enable debug logging on the Troubleshooting tab (set it to Logging: Detailed) and click Apply
  • After it crashes again, send me the %appdata%\DisplayFusion\DisplayFusion.log file (can be found by clicking the 'Open Log' button on the Troubleshooting tab)
Thanks!

Thanks! We're going to make some more changes for Beta 4, so I'll be sure to let you know as soon as it's available.

We've just released 4.0.1 Beta 4, could you give it a try when you have a chance and let me know how it works out?

Thanks!

Just a first impression: Been running it for several hours now without any crash, so this means that either the problem is fixed or at least it happens much less frequently than before.

I had full screen applications running for more than 2 hours today without any problems. Also, I have the PC running for 5 hours now without noticing any DF crash. Looks like the issue is no more. Keeping my fingers crossed. That secondary monitor taskbar creates such a dependency that you feel crippled without it

Awesome, that's great news guys! Please let me know if you still have any crashing/hanging issues at all.

Thanks!
