FARR crash related to changing monitor sizes.

<< < (2/2)

The crash module is user32.dll, which further implicates farr trying to create a window at an invalid position and not handling the error gracefully.

I still can't reproduce this issue. If I shut down the FARR process, edit the .ini file, set value MainLeft=4608, and start FARR again it shows up in the middle of the screen. I only have two screens connected. I wonder what else might differ with your PC and screen setup that triggers the issue?

It's very likely the intersection between the ini and your specific screen resolution/ monitor count. 

I've worked around it by writing a batch script that triggers when Windows event log notices process crash, it'll check if farr is running and if not it'll remove that line from the INI and relaunch

I apologize for the frustration this must be causing and the creative workarounds you've been willing to create for it!
I will try to fix. 
This seems like a good clue: "1) Farr doesn't actually crash at runtime, it crashes when it's hotkey (alt space) is pressed."
FARR has some code that tries to fix up the window position if it is off screen -- something must be going wrong here.

Quick question first, have you tried changing some of the options that tell FARR whether you want it to automatically position itself on the monitor when it shows?

I've had " When appearing center on monitor turned on", but I'll try disabling it and see if that makes any difference.
The good news is my watchdog script works pretty well.

I do wish far could use some sort of cash to speed up Results though I've been using it for almost 15 years so I don't want to move away, but there's a lot of other launchers these days that run things instantly.
