Re: gPhotoShow runs out of memory while scanning folders

Hey Gianpaolo,
This test build does wonders and with a much larger number of files. Thank you for the help.

Re: gPhotoShow runs out of memory while scanning folders

I found out that if I turn off the 'remember where you left off and make sure you don't repeat yourself until the end of the list' prevents the problem from happening in gphotoshow. I am checking now if the same approach works for wallpaperss. Don't know if this specific to windows 10 pro version 15...

Re: gPhotoShow runs out of memory while scanning folders

Yup, found it but I can't find a test mode either.
However, there is a more basic Linux utility called exif that will complain loudly if it finds errors and it does allow you to fix them if you want to. But it looks like it doesn't recurse like ExifTool.

Re: gPhotoShow runs out of memory while scanning folders

7.3.0 build 787. I'll do a search for .nef files but I doubt I have any. Malformed exif tags on the other hand are very possible.

Re: gPhotoShow runs out of memory while scanning folders

I forgot to mention in my last post that the first time the screen saver kicked in with that configuration, it worked with no problems but every time after that, it raised the out of memory error.

Re: gPhotoShow runs out of memory while scanning folders

Gianpaolo, Besides too many files, what else could trigger this problem? I've cut down on the files to about 3 million and the number of folders down to about 11,000. The whole thing is configured to load the files recursively from a single directory on a mapped network drive. The recursion depth is...

Re: gPhotoShow runs out of memory while scanning folders

Ahhh, I understand.
I am more of an open source dude so I never thought about that type of library but it does make sense.

Thank you for the information

Re: gPhotoShow runs out of memory while scanning folders

That is not the best of news.
Are you planning on releasing a 64 bit version?

gPhotoShow runs out of memory while scanning folders

Hello, I have gPhotoShow Pro 7.3.0 build 787 running on a windows 10 pro system configured with a set of folders mounted from a samba server. These folders altogether contain more than 4 million pics. After the screen saver kicks in while the folders are being scanned, I get an error dialog with an ...
