    1.0.4.8 - Awesome for skinning, BAAAD for the car!

    I put 1.0.4.8 in my home and it ran awesome. No crashes in the development environment, nothing. So I decided to put 1.0.4.8 into the car and I was in for a real bad surprise. First of all Streetdeck continuously crashed and restarted after being installed - this seemed to be particularly related to either trying to load music or run navigation. Mapquest 2006 would crash "most" of the time when Streetdeck would hang or crash.

    The cdrom isn't being found either, but I don't think this is related. I think maybe it is time to roll back to 1.0.4.7 until the next release!

    If this rollback doesn't work, then maybe I have something a little more sinister in the works here.

    Exclamation Second test reveals what's really going on....

    Ok, I gave it a second chance in the car and as it turns out it must be the background mp3 loader - I can run fine with navigation and xm radio and flip between all the screens and channels and navigation views (the nav night view is pretty cool); however, the second I hit select music and "all," that's all she wrote. Crash... and the dialog for sending the report comes up. I restart it and as long as it doesn't try to continue with the music section it's fine (sometimes requires a full reboot so Streetdeck doesn't try to pick up where it left off and start loading music), but select music (anything over one or two files) and it's all over. I may try reindexing all my music, but this isn't looking good as it appears to be a persistant failure...

    Does it work if you run with -NoDelayComp?

    Ok, I checked it out, and it appears that the music will work normal (and faster in that mode), but if I switch between NAV and music, it crashes, all I have to do is either play with a few of the buttons in Nav or change a few songs in the music list - the only thing different between my home computer and that one (other then the music was imported by Streetdeck and it has Navigation) is the fact that I am running all of the plugins (google map data, gps status, and weather). Are any of these plugins no longer compatible, or does this likely have nothing to do with it. Switching between NAV and XM seems to have no effect, but yet every time it crashes with the music, it also crashes Mappoint 06??

    Oh yeah, and my home computer is 10x more powerful... PD 2.4

    THe plugins haven't been officially released yet, they should work though, we don't actively test them before each release though. You should rename the scripts directory and try it again, although, I don't know why running music would have anything to do with it, if they were the cause.

    Ok, not the plugins and not the re-indexing of the music. I can safely say that this USUALLY happens when I switch to the 50/50 view with the compass in the navigation module and sometimes while flipping through music after accessing the navigation module and Mappoint failing seems to be consistent at this point.

    Mappoint always fails if streetdeck does first. So is it still true, you never crash if you don't run music. I haven't been able to duplicate anything yet, can you run with -verbose and send me a log?

    I will send a log after I am done reinstalling Mappoint 06 (if it still fails) I'll keep you posted. I only thought to reinstall Mappoint because once you've done everything else, that's the last thing...

    I added a -NoBackgroundMP3 option, see if that fixes your problems.
