2.0.4 Freezing Problems - devmonster - 02-02-2013 10:14 AM

Hi,

Back in 2.0.3, there were freezing problems caused by WhatPulse. From what I've gathered, its because when WhatPulse writes to the database, it runs it on the main thread, freezing it, and prevents it from sending keyhooks back to Windows. This issue is still in 2.0.4, causing occasional freezes. I'm reverting back to 2.0.2 which does not have this issue

Yeah I'm getting lag too on keyboard and mouse every 5 minutes (save to database ?). Which is highly inconvenient

When did you download the 2.0.4 installer? There was a window of about 2 hours (300-ish downloads) where there was a wrong installer online. It contained a built that still did that, it was updated a little while after the main release.

I downloaded it about 5 hours after the email notification was sent out. The installer was 2.0.4 though.

Just redownloaded and reinstalled 2.0.4, but the problem still persisted. Downgrading to 2.0.2 fixed it.

Yep same here. Still using 2.0.2. It crashes occasionally so I created a scheduled task to run it once a day. It usually crashes when it should do a scheduled pulse

What kind of keyboard do you have? What OS?
Do you have any software running related to input? XFire, Intellisense, music player app that responds to hotkeys maybe?

I'm a developer, so I've attached an external keyboard and mouse to my laptop computer. I'm also running VS 2012 and of course using Intellisense

I'm running...

OS: Windows 8 Pro 64bit
Mouse: Logitech MX518 Mouse
Keyboard: Logitech G15 Original (18 G- Keys + LCD Screen)

No to Xfire, No to Intellisense (Unless its installed with Windows), and I use Foobar2000. I didn't have this problem until I upgraded from 2.0.2 to 2.0.4. I skipped .3 and went straight to .4 since I didn't check my email in time.

Hope this helps dutchmega!

Edit:

Win Pcap doesn't work on Windows 8 either. So I think that may be a part of the problem.
