Standalone App Crashes on Windows 11

Post by mikelpapamike » Wed Mar 15, 2023 8:41 pm

Hello everyone,

I have a simple app that I wrote a couple of years ago, which works perfectly on windows 10 until now.

Lately I used the same app on a windows 11 laptop, and after about 10-15 minutes the app crashes and closes by it's self.

The only error I found in windows event viewer is an error that says "Application stopped communicating with windows and crashed"

Anyone else noticed simillar behaviour?

Thanks in advance.

For anyone that may face the same issue:
My Problem seems to be solved, after "Saving as standalone Application" my App on a Windows 11 running Livecode. I'm using Livecode Indy License fyi.

Of course that does not help people who develop stacks on other platforms
and then run off standalones for Windows on those platforms.

This is a known bug that LC has tried to fix twice. The first fix was not completely successful but the second apparently was. If you are using the latest version of LC, that may be why it now works. Or if you have removed or replaced the default printer drivers, that was the workaround.
