in reply to Win32 / Not responding

I believe you are using WindowsXp.

That's an issue that started with Xp, and I believe it was done to give you control over the application that seems to be not-responding (by replacing the titlebar so that the close button is accessible, and it tags the application "Not Responding")

It happens to a lot of apps, and I doubt it can be changed. try opening a 100Mb file in photoshop, it will do the same.


He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

    Chady, this didn't start with WinXP. It's been an issue with any Win32 since NT. You can see my first post, Application Not Responding, as another example and see one solution.

    PerlingTheUk, did you bother to try a search on Not Responding before you posted this question? You'll find several threads on this exact issue. Next time, try using search first to see if your question has already been asked & answered.

    - - arden.

[marto]: what a mess
[karlgoethebier]: perhaps i need a zerial?
[Corion]: marto: Heh - I think that's a nice contractual trap, "you will not use other gods/engines besides ours" ;)
[Corion]: But if the base intention was to have CIG as "co-developers" who (have to) contribute changes back to the mainline, it makes sense to have them use no other engine
[marto]: yes, I hear that development house has been on its last legs for a couple of years now
[Corion]: Is anybody aware of what makes Android Oreo better than Android Nougat? I'm not sure if the architectural changes (etc) are there already that make upgrading an Oreo-kernel phone to a newer Android userland (Lineage OS) version feasible
[Corion]: Yeah, CryTek got blindsided (or whatever) by Unity and Unreal Engine being zero cost, and the CryTek documentation being bad/nonexistent I think
[Corion]: "zero monetary cost", because of course, it's gratis only if your time has no value :)
[marto]: I used to keep up to date with my android ROMs, updating to the nightly every other day
