Title: mgalaxy.exe is not responding
Post by: jbenscoter on July 28, 2019, 10:05:18 AM
When I exit mGalaxy, I'm getting a windows error:

mgalaxy.exe is not responding
-> Close the program
-> Wait for the program to respond

This happens even if I never run an emulator.  If I just start mGalaxy, then immediate exit, I get the error, so I don't think its related to my MAME emulator.

I'm running mGalaxy v7.5 on Windows 10 Home v1903, Build 18362.239.

Did you install inside "Program Files"?

No, it's installed in C:\mGalaxy

1. Could you try to run it with Administrator rights? (to check if this is a permission concern)
2. Which theme are you using? (if you're running the Premium version, could you try to switch to the 'Base' theme?)

1.  Tired this, same problem
2. Was using premium, switched to '"Base" and still have the same problem.

I've attached errors logs from the event viewer, if that might help...

I'm having exactly the same issue.  Every time I quit mGalaxy the app freezes, then I get the Windows 10 app not responding dialog.  Doesn't matter how long mGalaxy has been running or what was done within it, it always freezes on quit.

Does mGalaxy resides in "Program Files" folder..or out of it?

Has anyone found a fix for this problem?  I just downloaded mGalaxy and am having the same problem.

Hi:

Have this problem of freezing when mGalaxy exits have been resolved?

--I run it with Administration rights
--It is installed in Destop (where the program itself installed)
--I use the free version with Base Theme (which is the most I like)

Eeeeevery time I exist mGalaxy, it freezes and I have to press "Ctrl+F4" and choos "Close the program"

I used mGalaxy 6.3 version and it was running perfect

What can I do?
TIA

I've built a beta that should address this problem. Download the archive and extract its content into the mGalaxy folder (and choose to overwrite files)
