Our company has recently started to move users to Windows 10. Well in doing so our Clarion applications have started to freeze up / lock up randomly on just Windows 10 machines. Windows 7 machines are just fine. Can someone shed some light on what could possibly be causing this one Windows 10?
Alright I just tried it. The ALT key has no effect on the clarion app. The user states that its random, she walked away from the computer came back and the app is locked. Task manager does not show it not responding but nothing works in the app. A few things I have tried is launching the app in compatibility mode setting it back to Windows 7 as well as turning off ipv6. Waiting to hear back from her to see if it locks up again. Figures crossed.
What version of clarion are apps built from? If older, the changes to the WinAPI can cause wait chain issues (we have this with an C6 app) If you use Task Manager look for the locked up clarion app and Analyze the Wait Chain,. that may point you to another windows app that is causing problems.
The problem could be that you do not have a proper manifest. Here is the example we are using for Windows 7 and Windows 10.
Name it as “program.exe.manifest” and include it in cwproj.
It should be like this in your cwproj file: Library Include=“program.exe.manifest”
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
<requestedExecutionLevel level="asInvoker" uiAccess="false"/>
