UI Freeze on Scheduled Execution


Recommended Posts

Whenever Retrospect 7.5 runs on my latest-patched winxp sp2 machine on a daily schedule, the backup runs fine, but the UI freezes (or at least refuses to "repaint" itself). This is causing me big problems as I can't see the currently executing jobs or any important messages (such as insert another tape!).


Backups are all working fine - and the UI is obviously still receiving input as I can click on the place where the menu should be, and the menu drops down (but renders only the separators - so I have to remember where the exit link is and guess what the messages that popup in message boxes are saying... not ideal).


It's fine when I run and execute a manual backup - the UI freeze only arise when the program and backup runs from a scheduled execution.


I've searched the web and the support forums and can't find any other mention of it - anyone have any ideas or similar problems and solutions? I've also just updated to the latest Retrospect driver to see if that makes any difference.


Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the suggestions.


I have got a dual monitor setup with Dell E196FPs (Flat panels). This is driven by both fairly standard cards with nothing out of the ordinary drivers (windows update) although I guess the two graphics drivers could be causing some problems.


Disabling the second monitor has no effect, and running Retrospect in both screens (so I guess using different drivers to render the screen) has no effect either - still freezes up.


Main monitor is on Radeon X300 SE 128MB

Secondary is on an older Nvidia Gforce 2 MX 100/200


Turning off hardware acceleration on both has no effect either so not sure if this is related to the graphics drivers or some other problem...
