Additional: Alice is not installed in the program directory. I use the adalm1000 throug a usb 3 hub. Mayby this is a cause?
I only have one usb 3 connection on my laptop so i use the hub for a wireless keyboard and mouse and the Alm1000. When testing again i noticed that the crashing of Alice coincided with moving the wireless mouse. So i connected the Alm1000 directly to the usb on the laptop and used the touchpad of the laptop itself instead for using Alice. And it worked. No more crashes. Very odd though. And very inconvenient. I ll go looking for a Bluetooth mouse/keyboard.
Thanks for the replies.
I have no ideas on why this would be happening. I assume this happens only when the program is capturing data ( i.e. RUN button was clicked ) and not when paused ( STOP button was clicked )?
I don't have access to Windows 10 to try and reproduce this. I've left the program running for over an hour in older Windows versions with out any problems.
Thats correct. It crashes abou 10 seconds after run is clicked. For instance this is the case with chart recorder. I see a short trace and then it stops. Does the adalm1000/alice have problems with running through a usb3 (powered) hub?
If not could the antivirus software cause this? Pixelplus has no problem.
Again, I have not seen anything like this on Windows 8 so I can't say what would be causing the problem. 10 seconds seem like a very short time. Can you run the board directly from the computer and not through the Hub? Again, I've run the board with and without a hub without any issues. I assume you are running the latest ( 2.09 ) firmware version ( and ALICE with a date of 11/25/2016 ).
By the way the strip chart recorder uses threading in Python and I've seen it do strange things sometimes. Stick to testing with the main ALICE desktop 1.1 program.
Glad to hear that you have solved the mystery, ( and it's not the software ). You might try a different hub, maybe a USB 2 one. I have used a very inexpensive 7 port USB 2 hub ( ~$4.00 US ) with my Windows 2 in 1 tablet through a USB 2 go adapter without any issues. You might also try a different mouse, maybe a wired one?
