frequent Multi Commander hangs
« on: October 12, 2023, 00:33:38 »
I've had quite a few occurrences when Multi Commander would just hang. Here is a screen shot from SysInternals process explorer.

if a dump would be helpful, I can try to capture a dump the next time it happens.

One thing unique about my installation is that I use a couple of OSFMount ram drives which I have open in Multi Commander.

this time I captured a full dump created via process explorer...

it's too big to upload so i put it in my Dropbox site...

here is the download link

hopefully this will help to find the cause and then possibly a fix...

This hang is during shutdown..  It waiting for a response from windows when cleanup and shutting down

Thanks for the response Mathias,

is there anything that can be done to fix this. 

the one thing that may be unique is that I have a RAM drive created via OSFMount that I have open in one of the panes. Could the RAM drive be related to the problem

This seems to be happening more frequently now.

        Thanks

it is when MC tells windows to stop monitoring some folder location,  What folder location I can't see..  but sounds that it has to do with some none normal device. Normally this call never halts operation..

Hello Mathias,

I am always monitoring a folder on a RAM drive created by OSFMount. So I'm guessing that is the issue.

Can you detect if the folder is on a RAM drive ?

This link seems like it might be a clue as to the issue I'm encountering
