QuoteI have a few apps that start via my Windows Scheduler and the app runs fine except it doesn't totally drop out of the system. After a few days I end up with several virtually inactive processes that are not running but they do consume memory.
Quote from: ubotbuddy on January 03, 2013, 04:07:06 PMWhere is that scheduler at? I have another app that could benefit from that.
Quote from: ubotbuddy on January 02, 2013, 06:36:28 PMUnder Conditional Automation / Disallowed Processes.I love this section. A++++ Would it be possible to have something similar for Processes that die after a period of time to just blow them out? I have a few apps that start via my Windows Scheduler and the app runs fine except it doesn't totally drop out of the system. After a few days I end up with several virtually inactive processes that are not running but they do consume memory.
Quote from: ubotbuddy on January 02, 2013, 06:36:28 PMUnder Conditional Automation / Instance count limited processes.Again this is a pretty nice feature! Can an option be included to keep the newer instance running and zap the older instance? This would at least control the a fore mentioned processes from growing out of control.
QuoteWhat a joke. That windows app stinks. That was the whole reason I started my research and then found your GREAT product.
QuoteThese are programs that I have written so the termination code is present. When my programs are run by double clicking and then they end they drop out of memory normally. HOWEVER, when the Task scheduler starts them I can see them start and I can watch the CPU utilization and memory consumption change around. Then I see the program terminate and drop off of my Taskbar. So visually it appears to be done. Inside of Task Manager and your Process Lasso I can still see the program which leads me to think that Task Scheduler is flawed.If it were my program then starting in manually should produce the same dead remnant in Task Manager. But I have yet to see this effect.
QuoteAnd no I don't have any other apps in the scheduler.
QuoteThe task bar can basically decide to quit updating itself, getting all out of sync. Same goes for the system tray. Even the clock STOPS in its tracks. The only way to fix it is to flip to Metro and back, refreshing the task bar and system tray!
QuoteI don't think the ARS article has anything to do with it, but it is an interesting read. I may comment on it.
Quote from: Jeremy Collake on January 08, 2013, 08:23:37 PMI uninstalled 'Open Hardware Monitor', which I had set to show two system tray icons (temperatures) and things returned to normal. This goes in line with another user report, who was using similar software that did a lot of system tray updates.I don't think the ARS article has anything to do with it, but it is an interesting read. I may comment on it.
Quote from: edkiefer on January 09, 2013, 11:50:59 AMI use this to and this was one of app that can happen, since there no installer . Things like CPU-Z, GPU-Z any app with no installer seems there chance of getting 2, double entries .Sometimes this can happen even with installer but most times it gets cleared up after few reboots , seems windows is sometimes smart .
Quote from: Jeremy Collake on January 09, 2013, 12:13:35 PMDouble entries in the task bar is perhaps a sign, or perhaps an improperly created Window. Anyway, this effect stops even the system tray clock, only to be reset when you flip to Metro and back.
Quote from: edkiefer on January 09, 2013, 12:47:33 PMI was referring to icon notification area list, not taskbar or tray . again this is no problem really .I am on win7 , no win8 .

Quote from: Jeremy Collake on January 10, 2013, 09:12:08 AMYea, it is a general rule so that we can tell spammers from real people. Otherwise, I wouldn't really mind mentioning other software.
Quote from: ubotbuddy on January 10, 2013, 09:46:21 PMNP guys! Sorry been out of town.I will figure it out. It is either the software platform that I am using for the development and the vendor is in denial OR it's a Windows issue.
