Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #19100 (May 10th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #19100 (May 10th 2024) (x86 only)

NOTE: Beta testers are added in a limited & subjective manner as I can only support so many people as part of the beta test program to keep it useful for my needs.

Unless I think you're going to be helpful, not all requests will be accepted but might still be later on. Remember that beta testing is to help me & the limitations currently works for my needs for this project.

WACUP Scanning bug
« on: October 12, 2023, 10:01:28 PM »
Again i'm not sure exactly when this occurs or what triggers it.

BUT a bunch of times, my Wacup seems to restart the full scanning, and it takes forever and really just ends up hanging. I end up having to crash WACUP and that seems to solve it, but no idea yet the steps that trigger it.

Anyone else with this problem?

Have you configured anything via the folder monitor prefs page (winamp called it watch folders) ? If that is what's going on, it's not meant to cause working with the library views to lock-up unless your setup / interactions are somehow causing a bug I'm not recognising. Otherwise the processing status can be due to a number of other things from trying to update the current playback count for what's just been played or if editing metadata from a file.

Also if you're forcing it to crash, I don't seem to be getting any crash reports that I assume might be you which makes it harder to resolve this. In such scenarios, Windows task manager can be used to create a dmp file for the process which might then help to determine why it's locked up (the files are large but usually compress well & can be pm'd as a hosted link if viable). If not, preferences -> advanced -> error reporting -> follow the steps to run wacup via procdump & when it crashes, you then need to just start wacup again & that should auto-submit a stripped down crash report (best to notify me if you do that & it fails so I can then check it's been received).
