Dexcontrol.exe dies after return from full-screen Direct-X

Postby MikeB » 07.06.2012 12:19:04

Dexcontrol.exe terminates and refuses to run after return from Direct-X full screen - for example: Phoenix RC Sim v4, Trackmania, rFactor.

In the plugin settings tab, Dexcontrol is unchecked and cannot be checked. Dexpot must be restarted for Dexcontrol to start working again.

The same Direct-X apps run in windowed mode don't produce the problem.

Windows 7 x86
Intel x4500MHD integrated graphics with latest Intel driver
Dexpot build 1.5.99.2003 but previous version did the same thing

Log starting at mode switch (from Trackmania) back to desktop and native resolution...

The repeated Schautostarte: C:\Program Files\Dexpot\plugins\DexControl.exe | entries are me clicking on the Dexcontrol plugin checkbox.

Do you get some kind of error or crash message?

Nothing visible at all, but the crashes are in the event log:

Code: Select all

Faulting application name: DexControl.exe, version: 1.0.0.1, time stamp: 0x4fce28be
Faulting module name: DexControl.exe, version: 1.0.0.1, time stamp: 0x4fce28be
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00006542

Faulting application start time: 0x01cd45b2309ae00f

Report Id: 01c02a0f-b1b6-11e1-b545-00018079177a


Older ones (previous build I believe) have the fault offset at 0x000064b2

Nice - that seems to have done the trick.

Not a single problem with around 20 attempts. Previously it was almost guaranteed to crash.

Thanks for that :)

This works for returning from fullscreen apps (thanks btw!) but recovering from standby (atleast on Windows 8 RP) kills it.

Ok nvm that previous post. Its something weird going on. Occasionally (and not related to standby oddly enough), I can't check the plugin for dexcontrol (all others work). The fix seems to be to start dexpot, open a command prompt at the dexpot plugin directory and manually launch dexcontrol.exe twice. First time it doesn't do anything but the second time it launches the utility.

Strange behavior. I will investigate more and update.
