This issue only happens with the x64 version, not with the x86

I think I'm currently working on something that should fix your issue.

However I'm not completely sure that the problem itself is our fault. I see that you have ObjectDock, Start8 and Asus Xonar Phoebus running. It would be interesting to try without those and see if the problem still happens. If the problem goes away, try re-enabling those programs one by one until you find which is causing the issue.

Start8 seems to be the problem, If I stop Start8, mpc-hc starts every time.

Not sure why they hook in every program, maybe you can report this issue to them?

In the meantime, I think starting MPC-HC with /nocrashreport should fix the problem even when Start8 is running. I am working on an improvement which should fix the issue without needing this at all. I still think Start8 is doing something wrong though and my change would just hide the problem but not really fix it.

Reported to Start8

comment:7 Changed 21 months ago by andrés suero

If I kill Start8 or Xonar Phoebus, then the problem is resolve, stopping ObjectDock does nothing.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from accepted to closed

In 49069a:

Upgrade DrDump so that the crash reporting dialog can be improved.

  • The crash reporting dialog will not be started from the crashed process anymore so that it is completely safe.
  • The crash reporting dialog now completely replaces DrDump confirmation dialog
  • MPC-HC can now be restarted from the crash reporting dialog.

Fixes #5450 and #5479.
