if I open a new instance of Touch, set the perform window comp to open on monitor 1 (I’m on a 3 monitor setup) and click “open as separate window” I get a blank perform comp window and all of TD freezes permanently.
I just recently upgraded to win 11, and did not have this issue on 10. So it’s entirely possible this issue is not a TD bug, but wanted to bring it up regardless. It’s also entirely possible it’s just me, as I also reformatted recently and upgraded a bunch of hardware.
Is anyone else who’s taken the plunge to win 11 experiencing this as well? It’s very reproducible for me.
What else is strange, is if I hit f1 the above settings work fine and I get a perform window in monitor 1.
Then if I hover over that perform window, and hit “f10” for a floating network window, it crashes same as above.
If I set my perform monitor to 0 again, and go to perform, and then hit f10, I get that second window no problem.
I can then move that floating network or the perform window up to monitor 1, and everything still works fine.
I am on Win11 and I cannot reproduce so far (any of the issues you describe).
Do you have any specific settings on the window COMP other than the monitor number change? Can you test the file I attached and tell me if it occurs and if I am missing anything on the window COMP ? Same by pressing F10 while hovering the widget.
Good to hear it’s not a straight up Win11 thing then. Sounds like it’s a me problem
your example causes a crash for me as well. Same with F10 over widget.
Gamebar is working/functional, not sure how to turn it off, but it shows up with windows + G
Gamebar is set to not record in background.
no discord overlay, and it’s also closed atm.
nvidia ingame overlay was enabled, but I disabled it, no change.
gpu drivers are up to date (496.49) , that hardware is constant from before my reformat.
Is there a way to get some kind of error message, attaching visual studio to TD or something like that? I did install a new mobo, so entirely possible some bloatware that came with that. Nothing obvious is jumping out at me yet though.
Trail of breadcrumbs for anyone else running into this problem - @JetXS was correct about motherboard bloatware crap
Specifically in my case was a service called “Nahimic Service”.
Has something to do with audio related bloatware surprisingly, not so much video. If you are checking out the z590 or zXXX lines of asus boards just be wary of that stuff. Great hardware, but some of their official driver / software installer packages must come with some of this stuff. Uninstalling doesn’t always remove all of these gotchas. I couldn’t find this particular application in program files or anywhere else, but it’s pesky exe file and service still persisted.
to fix it, I went to services.msc, stopped that service, then closed that window, opened up cmd as admin, then ran this:
As bloatware is a recurring issue for many users, as a documentation RFE I would suggest we start building a wiki page listing the names of known bloatware which can disrupt TD. Then in the future we can just send a link to that page to any user on the forum who experiences freezes/stutters as something to try first (next to upgrading their drivers) @JetXS and also @ben has seen many of those bloatware issues in the last years, perhaps with a 30 min dig on this forum we already have the beginning of a list.
