FARR crashes after installing AltTab plugin
« on: May 10, 2010, 04:29:33 PM »
Hi,

After I installed the AltTab plugin, FARR crashes. When re-run it, it crashed again. Thankfully, after I re-ran it again, it detected that the plugin was causing problems and disabled it.

EDIT:
OS is win7 x64.


Anyone else having this problem?

Thanks.

I use AltTab constantly on my W7 32-bit machine and have never had a crash that I could attribute to it.

kli, do you have other plugins installed? you might try moving them out and trying alttab again without them -- there is a known issue with some older fscript.dll plugins and others.

For me, and I am also using Windows 7 x64, FARR doesn't crash but it tries to access the A: drive for some reason. It was giving an error which I didn't write down, just now I tried it and I no longer seem to get the error, but I can hear the diskette drive grunting as soon as I hit that space after typing in "tab".

^I spoke too soon. Now every time FARR starts I get this and FARR won't open:

I was originally going to post the troubleshooting log, but it looks like .log is not one of the allowed file types here ironically.

How do I disable the plugin for the time being?

Hey! It's my 100th Post! Aww, I didn't get to post in the 100th Post thread.

IIUC, most plugins live in their own folder under <somewhere>\FindAndRunRobot\Plugins and disabling can be done by moving the specific plugin's folder to some other location (while FARR is not running).

In the current case it looks like the folder to move is:

  C:\Program Files (x86)\FindAndRunRobot\Plugins\FARRAltTab

FWIW, it's a procedure I have gone through multiple times with some success, but under Windows XP.
