Still suffers from this issue. Edge windows appear on both taskbars regardless of settings. Only Edge, no other application.

Beta 7 worked just fine for me but beta 8 keeps crashing constantly. It's crashed at least 10 times so far today. I'm gonna revert to the stable version for now.

EDIT: since it happened once more before I reverted back I noticed it mostly crashes when I use the button to reduce windows to tray icons. This last crash was caused by using it with Thunderbird 68.x.

Yes. Still crashing for no reason at all.

issue still there for me, after upgrading to b9. Just had another crash after system running fine for ~4 hours (and it had even been rebooted after the upgrade)

Hello,

@chb80 Are the crashes happening when you move windows around?

Thanks!

I will try to check. Problem is, the time I notice it crashed (titlebar buttons become black, taskbar is no longer responsive) is most likely not the time it actually does.
But I move windows all day, so that might be related. When I have a hint, I will reply back.

Hello,

Sounds good, in the meantime, could you send me over a debug log if it crashes again? Here are the steps:

  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Troubleshooting tab, change the Logging drop-down to "L1: Log Minimal" and click Apply
  • Reproduce the issue and note the time so we'll know where to check in the log file
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button on the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Reply with the file attached
  • Disable debug logging after sending the log

Thanks!

Debug log attached. I noticed the crash and killed the application at around 11:52.

Edit: Added a second one, since it just crashed again, noticed at 13:07

Hello,

We've just released beta 10. Can you update and enable the "Logging: Disable Log Buffering" advanced setting, restart Display Fusion, and then send over another log when it crashes?

Thanks!

there you go, crash detected 10:32
(Note that I have now afterwards again, same as the days before, downgraded to non-Beta, since it crashes multiple times per hour)

If you go to the "C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Binary Fortress Software\DisplayFusion\CrashDumps" folder, are there any files in there?

Folder does not even exist. There is a "Binary_Fortress_Software" folder (with underscores), but rather old and with no CrashDumps anywhere inside its sub structure.

Ok, thanks for checking that. It sounds like it's not actually crashing but rather hung or dead-locked. The next time this happens, could you do the following?

  • On the Windows Task Manager > Details tab, right-click DisplayFusion.exe and choose "Create dump file"
  • When the dump file is created it will show the path and file name in a dialog box
  • Zip the file
  • Send us a support request through the DisplayFusion Settings window (Help > Support Request) but don't attach the dump file as it will be too big. Just send in the request and we will send further instructions on how to send the process dump

Thanks!

ok, did that when it last crashed yesterday. Hope they can find something in it

I noticed today that 9.7.1 (non-beta) is available. Was there anything further 'repaired' compared to the latest betas that would help with my issues? Or will 9.7.1 just introduce the same trouble to the regular version as well (in which case I would refrain from updating until my problem has been found)?

Got the request and have just responded.

Thanks!
