Dcuppdater.exe crashes multiple times daily in W7...
« on: October 15, 2009, 04:18:11 PM »
I was looking at my Reliability Monitor today, just out of curiosity, and noticed that it says that DcUppdater.exe crashes multiple times every day.  This is typical of the problem report:

Description
Faulting Application Path:   C:\Program Files\DcUpdater\DcUppdater.exe

Extra information about the problem
Bucket ID:   1248410852

I'm running v1.23.01, according to the app itself.  Any ideas as to why this might be happening?  Most days, it happens twice at around 2:30 AM, and twice at around 2:30 PM.  It also leaves an icon in my system tray each time it happens, which disappears, of course, as soon as I mouse over it.

Awesome - very exciting times!  (You don't know how hard it's been on my scanty store of patience to not keep bugging you about the FARR updates...)  :D

Any update on this. DCUpdater is such a key component for the DonationCoder software it is frustrating that it crashes on Windows 7. If there is anything I can do to help test or debug please let me know.

I just discovered the same problem on my W7 machine.  It works if I start it individually and then use it, but I'm getting the same multiple crash warning that forces my "reliability" index to 1.

ahh!!!!!!!!!!

i should have read the initial post more carefully -- this must be why i had a hard time reproducing the problem -- because it doesn't happen if you run it manually!

can i verify that everyone with this problem is using my Find and Run Robot program?  If so, go into the Find and Run Robot options and disable Check automatically from the Plugins and Updates tab.  If not, then first step is to figure out what is telling dcupdater to run.

I just ran it manually and it worked fine until I closed it. Upon exit it crashed. Oddly enough it brought up the "This program has stopped working" window twice.

For me DcUpdater crashes after use regardless of whether I start it manually or from the FARR automatic check.

It appears to actually work fine, except for the 2 "This program has stopped working" windows when it tries to close itself.

mouser,

I don't know if this could be causal, but I find multiple messages in the Event Viewer: some reference DcUpdater, while others reference DcUppdater.

I remember that at one time the app was simply named DcUpdater - with one "p"; at some point you changed that to two "p"s - DcUppdater. I think at the time you were trying to isolate a problem. Anyway now as I said, there are references to both spellings throughout.

Could that be part of the problem?

Just wonderin'   8)

Thanks!

Jim

PS - I'm seeing this also; a whole lot!

I've been having the same issue - DcUpdater crashes multiple times per day.

Not sure if this will help, but I used ProcDump from Sysinternals to get a dump file when it crashed. I'm not familiar with Windows debugging too much, but was able to get the following summary report of the dump file. If I can provide you with any other info on this let me know.

FYI I am running the latest version of the most excellent FARR :). These crashes are happening when FARR automatically runs DcUpdater as well as when I manually run it.

Hi Jesse - In the meantime, is there a way to disable it? I have it set not to start with Windows, and I also deselected it in the Plugins section of FARR's options as you suggested above, but dcuppdater still manages to start at some point. I am guessing that one of the programs I have from you is calling it and causing it to start.

Any way to disable it without causing problems with my other DC apps?

Thanks!

Jim

 :(. Just tried it, and for me it caused the same issue. Again, the program runs and checks all the installed software. But when I exit DcUpdater. I get a message that it has stopped working. The problem details are as follows:

  Additional Information 4:   45f5d7257a5e5af74d9ee127e8d651ce

I wish I could track down what is causing the issue on my side. However, I haven't found anything. It does seem that Windows 7 has some odd issues like this. I recently had another beta application (Evernote) that wouldn't even install on Windows 7. On those forums half the people were able to get it to install correctly and the other half couldn't even get the install to do anything. The developers have not found a solution for that yet.

If there's anything to run on my side that might help you find a pointer to the issue, let me know and I'll be glad to help.

ok well someone willing to help test who gets the error reliably is a big aid -- do you mind emailing me (mouser@donationcoder.com) and testing a few versions for me as i try to pin down the cause?

Same AppCrash issue here too. However I do have the Evernote beta installed - that gave me no problems. (Other than the beta being so poorly designed that I might drop Evernote altogether). But the E-Note installer worked anyway.

I don't know what is different on my box here. Windows 7 Home Premium, clean install on a box that was running XP Pro before. 2.3 GHz AMD Athlon, 4 GB RAM, 2+ TB hard disk space.

Thank you.

is it possible you are all using the same antivirus or some common security application?

Eset's NOD32 V.4.0.474.0 (Latest build). I also run Malwarebytes scans but not the real-time active scanner. Windows 7 Firewall behind a hardware firewall. I have not logged any events, notifications, etc. with any of those regarding any of my DC apps.

Thank you.

DC members easye and katykaty have tested dozens of versions of the code to help me try to locate the problem.. not fun for anyone i assure you.

I have a new candidate version, let's see how this works for the rest of you:
