VDJ & Ctrl Alt...
Topic: VDJ & Ctrl Alt Del issue 8.2 & 8.3 builds on WIn 10 1803 64 bit
This happens with no external screen too. Just open VDJ and don't load anything in the decks. Click on the Master video out to launch the window. Then minimize VDJ. Then Ctrl Alt Del and open task manager. You will now see the VDJ master output window flashing. You can't close the output window because it keeps refreshing before you can hit close. During this, I have had to close VDJ and then restart it to get everything back.
Unlikely scenario for some, but I minimize VDJ often during a set to get to my Video pools on line for requests during shows and sometimes iTunes. With cell phone internet, there are sometimes lock ups where I would just like to kill a program without affecting VDJ.
Ideas? Am I the only one?

Also, I drag all my ideas and requests during the night in the Automix list. Keeps me organized and in case I need a quick break I can throw it on automix. But I think VDJ saves that on close. That night VDJ was obviously hung in some way and that list was not saved. So I came back to all my ideas and requests gone (automix list blank) which was a huge surprise, and also that much longer until I can remember something of where I was to get started again. It would be great if I at least had everything since the last autosave and before the freeze.
This might come down to improvements in three areas:
1. Want to fix white output window
2. VDJ was some kind of hung and would not let me maximize the main interface
3. Perhaps we need to auto save the Automix list occasionally (before VDJ close). That way I should have most of my list, and only missing most recent selections. That will get me going faster and I don't have to remember requests or stuff I chose potentially hours before.

You can go direct to task manager with ctrl + alt + shift
See if this causes the same issue

Also just hoping to make VDJ more “tolerant” and stable though as I am sure there are many more like me who only knew of Ctrl Alt Del.

Of course you can right click task bar and open task manager from that menu unless things are locked up. Then Ctrl alt delete is the only option I know of.

I should also mention that the other program (not VDJ) was locked up in my above scenario. So that is why I was using Ctrl Alt Del. I guess another point that I am just now thinking of is that I have no idea if that program locking up was the cause of why VDJ would not open back up. I think that is another reason why I did not post this until now.

Pretty sure when it happened it locked VDJ completely and there was no way to recover it.

I just waited for the song to end. Faded out the volume and made a quick announcement. Thank God for SSDs and quick boot times.

Will be fixed..
Is that the Early Access BUILD 4440 (2018-06-17) "-fix some potential (but rare) crashes"? Or in a future build?
