Hi Bob... There might be some error condition ("an Exception") that happens. If you open a command prompt window and 'cd' to the IDV directory and start it from there using the runIDV.bat file, if an error occurs, you'll get a trace displayed in the commad prompt window which you can then copy-n-paste into an email to help diagnose the problem. There may be other, unrelated issues, but this will help narrow the possibilities. Stay in touch, tom On 2/26/07, bobwxman@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx <bobwxman@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote:
Hi all, I`m running the latest IDV version on a windows XP desktop. I`ve noticed every now and then for some unknown reason the GUI will freeze up and I`m left with no choice but to ctrl/alt/dlt. Now I thought this might be a ram issue, but the IDV had only just been started up and the ram usage was way below the limits. Often I could be just starting to create a bundle. Kind of frustrating, any work I`ve created cannot be saved. Now, I`ve just installed IDV on a powerful windows 2003 server, with 2gb ram and a 3ghz dual core cpu. I`m accessing the box via windows RDC. A fresh install of IDV on this server tonight and within a few minutes of playing around, it froze up completely. I`m sorry I cannot be more specific, because it happens at various times. Kind of hard to keep a log of these crashes. Trying to shut IDV down when it `locks up` results in my desktop making beep noises whenever I click on a GUI button or shutdown. Odd, because I can be creating displays for a good hour, then another time I can start up IDV and will give me these problems. I`ve updated from Sun Java the latest version for windows, other than that I don`t know what else to do. Anyone else on a windows box having these problems? Kind regards, Bob.
