Repetier 2.1.6 Crashes / Freezes On startup, White screen and splash logo never dissapears.

edited February 18 in Bug Reports
Hi, :) iv bought this software and im using it everyday, awesome software! :D

I Recently bought a new computer and the software started to freeze on startup, i had to delete my registry files for repetier, uninstall and install again to make it work. When i do this all my configs and printers gets deleted. Manually added everything again and it happened again. So i got curious. I saved all mye registry files and started adding one by one registry entry to se when it crashed/freezed, and the last registry entry made it freezes everytime. This is the registry entry.

Faulty Registry
//
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\repetier\window]
"onOffImageOffset"=dword:00000000
"importScaleFactor"="1"
"lastUpdateCheck"="63749208429"
"fileHistory"="C:\\Users\\user1\\Desktop\\1.stl|C:\\Users\\user1\\AppData\\Local\\RepetierHost\\composition.gcode|C:\\Program Files\\Repetier-Host\\data\\models\\tablet.amf"
"printerSettingsWindow"="26|26"
"printerSettingsWindowScreen"=dword:00000000
"mainWindow"="-1613|151|1115|848|Normal"
"mainWindowScreen"=dword:00000000
"logSplitterDistance"=dword:00000263
"infoEditSplitterDistance"=dword:00000285
"logShow"=dword:00000001
"printerIdShow"=dword:00000000
"ExpertMode"=dword:00000001
//

This is my registry after clean install and not adding the faulty registry afterwards (This one works)

//
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Repetier\window]
"skeinforgeProfileDir"="C:\\Users\\oleto\\.skeinforge\\profiles"
"onOffImageOffset"=dword:00000000
"importScaleFactor"="1"
"lastUpdateCheck"="63749273762"
"fileHistory"="C:\\Users\\user1\\AppData\\Local\\RepetierHost\\composition.gcode|C:\\Users\\user1\\Desktop\\1.stl|C:\\Program Files\\Repetier-Host\\data\\models\\tablet.amf"
"mainWindow"="54|-14|1034|569|Maximized"
"mainWindowScreen"=dword:00000000
"logSplitterDistance"=dword:00000333
"infoEditSplitterDistance"=dword:000005ba
"logShow"=dword:00000001
"printerIdShow"=dword:00000000
"printerSettingsWindow"="-1764|156"
"printerSettingsWindowScreen"=dword:00000000
//

Then i narrowed it even further down,
To this entry 
"mainWindow"="-1613|151|1115|848|Normal" (Makes it freeze)

Looks like if i move repetier over to a other screen (i Have 6 screens and 2 Graphics cards) It Crashes on the next startup. I can edit the mainWindow registry to 0|0|1|1|Normal and it starts up fine.

Is this a bug with the software or is it something with my computer setup?


Running a RTX3090 and a GT710 Graphics card :)

  • Multi Monitor was always a bit of a problem. First that I do only have one monitor and second when the active screen was not available later on startup it was a problem. Also on linux it was  a problem. So for next update I removed the save position in case there are are more than 1 screens. Hope that this then works stable. 

    In your special case the 2 graphic cards might be the special problem.
