Rev 1.8.8.4 on WIndows 10 crash dumps
« on: 2020 January 26 10:30:09 »
For some reason, I get a crash dump with PixInsight 1.8.8.4 on Windows 10 every time I load the program.  Haven't done anything at all except load the program and I get a ~26MB dump.  Everything seems to work OK, just the incessant dumps for no obvious reason!  Can't find anything similar on Linux Mint 19.3.

The Win10 Event Viewer shows:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Faulting application name: PixInsight.exe, version: 1.8.8.4, time stamp: 0x5e1db5eb
Faulting module name: Qt5WebEngineCore.dll, version: 5.13.2.0, time stamp: 0x5dc1834c
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0000000001c3d1c3
Faulting process id: 0xd00
Faulting application start time: 0x01d5d47522694db8
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\PixInsight\bin\PixInsight.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Program Files\PixInsight\bin\Qt5WebEngineCore.dll
Report Id: 908fff17-257e-4528-a6fa-ef1319ea588c
Faulting package full name:
Faulting package-relative application ID:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anybody know anything about this?  I suppose I could uninstall/re-install but until I know what the problem is, I'd rather see what others might have found.

More info:  Checked another Win10 machine (new, first PI install) and I get exactly the same crash dumps.

Hi John,

This does not happen under normal working conditions, and cannot be reproduced on any of our working and testing Windows 10 machines. This problem is being caused by a wrong or outdated graphics driver. Updating drivers to their latest versions available usually fixes these problems. If you are using an integrated Intel HD graphics adapter and your computer has a discrete graphics card (NVIDIA or AMD for example), try disabling the Intel adapter, either from your BIOS if possible, or from Windows. Can you share more characteristics of these machines?

I'm using a GTX1050 graphics card with the latest drivers.  The only thing I did recently was add 16GB of memory (for a total of 32GB) - both machines have 32GB. The other Win10 machine has an RTX 2080 card in it also with the latest drivers.

Here's a PI benchmark so that should have all the info you asked for:
==================================================
Benchmark version ...... 1.00.08
Input checksum ......... 2cd72b67e12fff2812ef5b5da054ab2a70a25e23
Serial number .......... E7117P7423M52465U24C1IER87CUUXJ2

CPU Identification
CPU vendor ............. GenuineIntel
CPU model .............. Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz

System Information
Platform ............... Windows
Operating system ....... Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
Core version ........... PixInsight Core 1.8.8-4 (x64)
Logical processors ..... 8
Total memory size ...... 31.962 GiB

Execution Times
Total time ............. 01:09.55
CPU time ............... 00:46.22
Swap time .............. 00:23.31
Swap transfer rate ..... 711.162 MiB/s

Performance Indices
Total performance ...... 6763
CPU performance ........ 8189
Swap performance ....... 3939
==========================================================

I'll have to look at the BIOS to disable the Intel HD graphics - assuming its there, can't see it from Windows - unless its hidden somewhere!  I usually use my Linux machine anyway but it's disconcerting to see the crash dumps that I can't stop!

Tnx

John

If I'm reading the BIOS info correctly, the integrated graphics is already disabled as it should be. 

Only thing I can think of is both machines have 32GB of RAM - more than I ever used before. 

Both machines also use SSDs.

Hi John,

Your machines look perfectly normal. The problem is being caused by Qt5WebEngineCore.dll, which is part of Qt's QtWebEngine module, and is being used to implement the integrated web browser component of PixInsight. It uses the Chromium browser internally. The most probable cause for Chromium to cause problems is an issue with graphics drivers, but if you have the latest versions installed, then there is nothing else we can do in this regard.

Something that you could try is using desktop OpenGL instead of the default  OpenGL ES implementation:

   C:\Program Files\PixInsight\bin\PixInsight.exe --opengl=desktop

or even a software-based emulation:

   C:\Program Files\PixInsight\bin\PixInsight.exe --opengl=software

Other than that, try to detect some utility applications that might be conflicting with PixInsight, such as a virus protection software or a file management utility, common to both computers on Windows.

Tnx, I'll try your suggestions. 



HALLELUJAH - we have a solution!  The --opengl=desktop stopped the crashes!  I haven't done any further  regression testing but so far, so good!

What does this tell you???

Hi John,

I'm glad to know it has worked. What does this tell? Well, that Windows is a strange beast. Actually, this is just a confirmation, not a new thing :)

Hi,

FWIW Pixinsight 1.8.8-3 and 1.8.8-4 crash here when I quit the application. I.e. start Pixinsight, wait until it is up and running and then immediately click the top-right close button.
1.8.8-2 is the last version which did not crash.

I have Windows 10 64 bit, AMD Vega 56 graphics card, Ryzen 3950x CPU.

Here is the stack of the crash with 1.8.8-4, which seem to be a NULL pointer dereference:

I confirm that using  --opengl=desktop command line parameter prevents the crash.

What did you do to fix?  I also get these crashes.  Also on 32G RAM and disabled the on board graphics. All other apps work fine on this machine.

I've been having issues with my windows computer recently. The system goes into major meltdown and will not respond, leaving me to do a hard shutdown. This corrupts my hard drive.

I've just gone through my system logs to trace the cause. PixInsight is regularly crashing with the same problem as the OP. In fact it's the only program crashing, so I am concerned that PI is the cause of my computer woes.

Below is a sample of the crash log.
