HWINFO64 locking up on flushing buffers


New Member

When I try to start the program it just hangs there after flushing buffers. I can't even terminate the process. This is the entirety of the debug file:

- Flushing buffers...
Are you sure that it lockus up, how long have you tried to wait? Under certain conditions (i.e. when launching from an SSD drive and/or there is another application with intensive disk operations running) it might take quite long to flush all buffers.
Hi Martin,

Your right! Though the Start Up process, I have seen HWiNFO64 take up to 10 minutes to start, on occasion it is almost immediate. When I manually start it, it is usually fairly fast. I just go on doing other things and let it take care of itself.

However, if on occasion my cursor is clicked on the small status bar, (in W 8.0 and W 8.1 the cursor disappears) the non-responsive system, the why mine is set(force closer) will ask if I want to close or wait. I just click wait.

Hope this helps a little? :D

I'll add an option to let the user disable "Flushing buffers". This is just a precaution feature in case HWiNFO might crash the system, so no data will be lost.

EDIT: Done ;) Will be available in the next build released.
