Windows crash behaviour

Post by G4DWV - Guy » 20 Oct 2017, 15:04

I am having some issues at the moment with windows crashing.

When that happens, Log4OM loses all of its config data. Luckily I backup daily so could copy config.xml from the previous days backup.

Is there any way that this behaviour can be stopped?

Hi Guy,
What version of Windows and when you say "crashes", exactly what does that mean? When, what else is running,??????

I don't believe it's a Log4OM issue as no other user seems to have this problem that I'm aware of.

Hi Chuck,

The crash is a BSOD. The loss of config data does not happen every time, but it's very close to it.

Cheers

Did it just start doing this? If so, can you do a system restore back to a point in time before it happened?

Then, determine what has changed between then and now.

BTW: looking at your other posts here on the forum, wonder if your not having some form of conflict with drivers or other software.

I have been having these crashes whilst trying to get omnirig to work properly with Log4OM. I am just concerned that Log4OM loses its config in that situation. The crashes will stop when I stop fiddling.

It has to be something with how your system is set up as most users use OmniRig as I do and have no problems.

Chuck,

May I have as many of the settings of your setup that you can? I must be missing something and your setup may point me in the right direction. If you have an Icom 7300 as I do, you may hold the solution to my prayers.

Cheers

I run a Icom Pro 3. Does it only crash when you run OmniRig?

If so, I'd try changing ports as there may be a conflict. And, my config wouldn't help you as I doubt they are anywhere close.

As you probably know, there are many users with 7300s that have no problem that I know of.

Hi Chuck,

The crashes were sporadic and a red herring in this case.

I know that many 7300 usersa run omnirig and that is what drives me mad. I'll see what the 7300 group can offer.

Cheers
