DisplayFusion Debugging

Jon Tackabury (BFS)'s profile on WallpaperFusion.com
A quick warning: This is an advanced topic. If you are uncomfortable with any of these instructions please don't do this.

If you find that DisplayFusion has locked up and and you can't exit, then this topic is the right place for you. Before you end the task, I would like you to follow these instructions:

Once those 2 files have been created you're all done. You can end the task in Task Manager. After this, just send me these 2 files so I can try to track down the issue.

Thank you for your help!

Jon, is this only for when DF has locked up? Not for when the buttons go wacky?

@benway: That's correct - use this only when DisplayFusion has completely locked up. I'm working on the "wacky buttons" problem this week. It is a separate issue then the locking issue, but hopefully I'll be able to fix both.

Just a small point (and maybe there are no affected users) but users of 64bit systems will need to change the script to read:

[tt]"C:\Program Files\Debugging Tools for Windows (x64)\cdb.exe"[/tt]

instead of

[tt]"C:\Program Files\Debugging Tools for Windows (x86)\cdb.exe"[/tt]

Excellent point - thanks John. I have posted modified versions of the .bat files.

I am having this problem (Display Fusion locks up) and I've got the debugger installed, and I've run the batch command...how do I send you the files? Should I just attach them to a forum post?

I am going to un-sticky this topic, as I'm hoping the deadlocking issues have been resolved with version 3.0.5. If the problems persist I'll sticky it again for everyone to see.
