Mixtikl 5.1.2.5 Crashing WinXP (VirtualBox)

Postby larsmilo » Fri Jun 08, 2012 5:19 am

Mixtikl Demo installs well.
First start goes well.
After closing/restarting Mixtikl, it crashes.
And it subsequently crashes on evry start.
(All in standalone mode)

From WinXP's Event Viewer:
Faulting application mixtikl.exe, version 0.0.0.0, faulting module mixtikl.exe, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x000a3860.
The exception generated was c0000005 at address 004A3860 (Mixtikl)


Specs:
WinXP SP3 (x86)
as VirtualBox Guest (VBox 4.1.16)

/Edit: saw in the faq this could be run in wine... so installed wine (in lubuntu), and installed mixtikl.
None of the problems described above appear. So must be a problem with vbox, or at least a bad interaction...
anyhow, wine is leaner, although not always compatible with other applications.

I have exactly the same problem with 5.1.2.5 running Win XP SP3 on a real computer (not a VM).

Crashes on startup with an exception...

Tried to revert to 5.1.0.6 but same problem - is there a new DLL or something installed with the latest version?

Pete (if you're reading!) feel free to email me if you want any tests or logs retrieving.

Hi all,

Just catching-up after a few days out of the loop!

Interesting question - I will have to try under XP, which I still have as a VM on my Mac. :)

There shouldn't be any changed DLL dependencies, so I shall have to see what I find!

Best wishes,

Pete

Hi Pete,

No worries!

Not sure if there is any link here, but I changed my ASIO latency settings (in the course of doing something else) and MixTikl worked fine for a while. Several opens and closes later, it has started crashing on open again. Have tried re-adjusting ASIO settings but no joy.... probably unrelated, but just in case!

As I mentioned, if you need any logs or traces, lemme know!

Hi again!

I've spent the afternoon - and evening! - re-configuring my Windows XP Virtual Machine. I've done this to investigate both the issue you reported, and a similar-looking issue under Noatikl (viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1553).

I ran-up this VM, and in it ran the Mixtikl build currently on the site, and was actually able to crash it immediately when resizing the Window .
I then tried an up-to-date build of the latest software, and that worked perfectly. Which is strange!
So, I might be close to being able to offer a fixed build, but I first want to spend some time trying to understand why this would be.

Best wishes,

Pete

Hi!

Good news - I have finally tracked-down the issue that caused crashing on resizing under Windows XP!

The issue is down to a library in Windows, that misbehaves in Windows XP, but performs fine in Windows 7.
Now that I've been able to track this down - which was hard! - the fix has been relatively easy, and we'll make it available after more testing.

Best wishes,

Pete
