Process Kill Killed FARR
« on: February 17, 2008, 09:02:28 AM »
I just noticed a blinking DCUpdater icon in my SysTray. Turns out it was showing an available update to the Process Kill plugin for FARR.  I clicked on the "Install All Available Updates" button and just as the update was completing an error message popped up saying FARR had to terminate due to an undefined error. I started it up again and all seems to be OK.

Possibly a planned restart after updating? Just an odd message.

I've had that a couple of times - it's when I leave FARR running during the update, it gets closed down & I get that message
Didnt think anything of it cause no problems after

EDIT/ think it is normally closed down so plugins get reloaded on restart & for some reason there's a problem with that.
I've had problems lately with shutting down computer (hangs) and I'm not sure how to find the culprit - just mention it cause FARR still running at that stage :-\

Hi Tom.

It's true that FARR appeared to be running when it was updated with that plugin.  I would have thought that DCUpdater would have shut it down when it installed the plugin.  Not sure why it didn't. I just installed Windows less than two weeks ago, so I haven't seen any shutdown problems since then.

Thanks!

Jim
