Bug report: Screenshot Captor stops Windows logoff
« on: June 17, 2005, 04:36:53 AM »
I can't log off Windows or shut down my computer with Screenshot Captor running in the systray. Every other program closes, but Windows just sits there and Screenshot Captor doesn't go away. If I close Screenshot Captor, my system can shut down or log off again.

yipe.. i guess that would be considered a bug :)
ill try to identify problem and fix this weekend...
is it reproducable? (ie happen every time? i have it running 24/7 on my machine and haven't noticed this, but i don't reboot often, and i can think of one scenario where it might happen).

the scenario i was thinking of is perhaps if there is an "unsaved" change to a file pending.

Happens every time, it's definitely reproduceable for me. I very rarely take a screenshot (once every two or three days), so I doubt it's holding any file handles open when I try. I tend to turn the laptop off about once every day.

I'll be shutting down again in about five or six hours; is there some way of asking Windows whether Screenshot Captor has any files open?

let me try to fix it this weekend - it's probably just a simple thing that im not obeying a request for system close - trying to minimize instead.

thanks! it's always nice to hear that someone likes a program.
i'll try to have a fixed version up in the next day or two for you to test-
any problem that is reproducable is usually easily to fix.

can you try this version and let me know if it solves the problem?
http://www.donationc...ScreenshotCaptor.zip

it's just a new exe, so copy it over existing one to use it.

I finally got the chance to try the new build. Sadly, it's still blocking me from logging off until I kill the process in Task Manager or right-click and exit. Also, it got way bigger!

what operating system are you using orange?
also, can you tell me if it exits normally if you right click and select "exit" from the tray?

i'm going to try some experiments on a vmware as soon as you tell me what os you have,
but another thing worth trying is going into options -> general settings -> close to tray.
(then make sure you use minimize button to make it go into the tray not close button which will close it).
if that works then at least its a clue.

mouser-I'm on Windows XP. This happens both on my laptop and desktop; my desktop is Pro and my laptop is Home. Both have Service Pack 2 applied.

It does exit normally if I right click and use Exit from the tray, I only use Task Manager to kill the process cos I've already got it open to see what processes are running when I can't shut down.

Well, I was having the same problem, and I'm not anymore.  Sounds like whatever you did worked.
