Re: both monitors go black and freeze

Hello, Crtl-Alt-Del is a system wide shortcut, it is handled directly by windows bypassing any running program, even if gPhotoShow was frozen by pressing ctrl-alt-del windows takes control and allows you to kill it. Because of this and the fact that after pressing alt-f4 and ctrl-f4 few time the pc ...

Re: both monitors go black and freeze

Hello, nobody else reported similar issue, I am running gPhotoShow continuously for weeks without problems so I think it is unlikely the problem is caused by gPhotoShow. If gPhotoShow freezes for any reason you should be able to get back control of the pc with ctrl-alt-del key combination (ctrl-shif...

If you wish to mark pictures for a review there are several ways, for example set a rating you are not using, set a keyword or create a shortcut in ...

Re: Media keys while screen saver is running.

It is not clear in which way you start the screen save but basically there are two ways: 1) start gPhotoShow directly (for example with the Preview button) 2) windows starts the configured screen saver (for example when idle time expires or with ControlSS menu item Start Screen Saver) I guess media ...

Re: Slow start with 8.3.1

I am afraid I can't do anything to workaround this issue. step 1 is the time needed to create an empty DirectX texture, a single DirectX api call. Probably it's a misbehavior in NVidia drivers, I wrote to NVidia developers forum to see if it is a known issue. For now only solution is to switch to St...

Re: Slow start with 8.3.1

Can you post the log lines beginning with "DXGraphics::TextureFromBitmapEx:" ? The first group is enough, just to see how much time take step 1 and 2. If step 1 is fast, maybe a workaround is possible. Anyway I can't understand why a low end Celeron is fast while some high end NVidia adapter are 100...

This is the problem: 26-10-2020 16:31:54 : DXGraphics::TextureFromBitmapEx, final: 26453ms 26 seconds to create a DirectX texture. Usually it takes less than 100ms, even on a Celeron based mini pc with integrated display adapter: 23-10-2020 10:27:12 : DXGraphics::TextureFromBitmapEx, final: 94ms I h...

Re: Slow start with 8.3.1

Hello, unfortunately older versions are not available. Anyway I don't think the gPhotoShow version make any difference, changes in the latest versions are not relevant and should not cause such a slowdown. It is possible the slowdown is caused by an update to your system. Do you have any antivirus o...
