4 problem on 2 shows on 2 hog 4pc


I'm working on a couple of shows at the moment and I'm running into a few problems programming.

1. Hog 4 pc crashes when i record a cue list onto fader 5
2. Hog 4 pc crashes occasionally when naming pallets or cue lists
3. Hog 4 pc crashes when updating cues in cue lists (about every 3rd update crashes)
4. still getting the another instance of "hog is running on the system" after every crash and have to stop all h4 processes running.

This is happening on 2 completely different machines running the absolute latest versions of the pc software. Also 2 completely diferent show files with different fixtures.

when this happens on either system dmx is still being outputted faders on both nano wing still perform as expected, but there are are no Hog 4 windows open on the PC. sounds like its a lingering issue to do with that driver problem that used to pop up when you closed a show?

    Are the problems listed above from both shows or just one show?
    What version of windows are you running?
    What else do you have hooked up to your computer?
    Were the shows created new on 2.4.0?

    both shows created on 2.4.0 2 almost identical computers running win 8. nothing els on the computer, and both are not connected to LAN or internet.

    the fader 5 issue is only on one of the machines. the rest of the problems are occurring on both.

    Can you send me the show files and a repro on what you are doing when the 4PC crashes?
    What is in playback what cue are you updating with what fixtures and parameters?
