This is a confirmation/ repeat of a part of bug 312422
OS Windows 7x64
video ATI Radeon Mobility HD 5145 [NB: this is a renamed 4x sries, not a 5x]
Driver 8.692.1.0 22-01-2010
Crash happens on Digikam install 4.2(.2) , *and* uninstall 3.8, (back during original install too).
The crash happens after starting the installer, before "Choose a start menu folder". The install self finishes okay, and the program starts normally.
Catalyst control Centre: Host application error:
Catalyst control Centre: Host application has stopped working
crash report box offers options:
"Debug or close program:"
CCC.exe no debugger found
No registered JIT debugger was specified
It is not really a problem for me, as
- I haven't really used Digikam yet, .
- I do not use CCC,
- it only happens during (un)install and
- it is easy to restart ccc.exe
But I thought I call it in, in case there is a deeper cause that can help solve other problems.
Also I am curious about why, as I do not see a reason why it should take down the video driver control center.
PS: I had, at one time, had KDE for Windows installed to get Digikam (2x?), but it did not work as I thougt and I removed it)
PS: Digikam>Help>about> shows KDE platform version 4.10.2 , not 4.2.0
Please try again with the new digiKam 4.5.0 for windows
Thank you for taking the time to address my bug.
My apologies for taking my time to test, but I wanted to clean up my system a bit before re-installing.
Unfortunately, it does not seem to have solved the problem.
I aborted the install and tried again a few times after the CCC crash, but it keeps happening.
(at one time the error changed to " Catalyst Control Center: Monitoring program has stopped working. " in stead of "CCC - Host application has stopped working", but the next time it was back to the old one.
If you think it would help I could try to run a JIT-debugger - I don't think Windows has one installed by default.
(What is that Backtrace that Laurent Soron was talking about in the linked bug?)
Can I follow the instructions on this site for that?
I can not find it on the MSDN site as I can only find about JIT debugging for Visual Studio (which I do not have), a Tool menu that does not show, and a setting in DotNet framework that is not there.
I'll probably also try to update the AMD driver at some point, if I do I'll try to reinstall Digikam again. (I've been a little hesitant to update before as things ran fine otherwise, but maybe it's time...)
Okay. I have uninstalled Digikam with Iobit-Uninstaller, and manually removed all remaining traces from the old KDE from directories and register.
(I do not remember it crashing CCC this time but I might have missed it)
Re-installed Digikam, still CCC crashed.
Then I uninstalled again (normally, it did crash CCC).
I installed the latest Legacy AMD drivers (2013 x64). (It gave me OpenCL :-) )
Re-installed Digikam, but still it takes out the Catalyst Control Center.
In fact, the menu now claims to be actively searching for conflicting software before crashing CCC - is it supposed to put a log file somewhere?
Perhaps you could ask Laurent Soron (from the cited bug report) if he is experiencing the CCC crash still as well?
Let me know if I can do anything else.
This file still valid using current 5.8.0 pre release bundle available here :
Thanks in advance
This problem is not reproducible with 5.8.0. I close this file now. Reopen if
I can confirm that it is fixed ( for me) with 5.8.
Been over to win10 (Which did not have CCC), but recently went back to a clean Win7. It still happened with 5.7 but with 5.8 the crash no longer happens/ So something you recently did seems to have fixed it. :-)
