Workaround: RH7 hangs when opening topics

Hi all,
I didn't turn up any threads about this particular workaround
while searching the forums, so I wanted to post this in case other
RH7 users are having the problem I was having.
I was experiencing hangs and crashes while opening topics. I
would double-click a topic, get the hourglass icon on my mouse
pointer, and then RH7 would become totally unresponsive, forcing me
to kill the program.
The problem did not happen with all topics, nor did it always
happen with the same topics, which made it tough to diagnose.
However, I stumbled upon a workaround. When RH7 hangs while
opening a topic, I can get it to "unhang" simply by closing Outlook
2007, which I usually have open at the same time. I just close
Outlook, wait a few seconds, and the topic opens in RH7 after a few
seconds. I then open Outlook again.
There seems to be some sort of conflict between these two
apps, though I have no idea what it could be. In any case, this
workaround has saved me lots of hair pulling!

I am working directly on the PC to which RH is installed, and
I am not using source control.
I tried the sample projects and had no problems opening
topics, though there are also times when I have no problems opening
topics in my own project (as I mentioned, the bad behavior doesn't
happen consistently).
Maybe certain characteristics of my project are contributing
to the problem. The project was converted from RoboHelp X5, for one
thing. It's also large (>50MB), and the topics are all in one
directory instead of being organized into subdirectories (something
I'm hoping to remedy when I have time; I inhereited the project
only recently).
Still, I don't see how any of those issues would be overcome
simply by closing Outlook.
It's pretty odd.

  • JDeveloper 11.1.2.3 hangs when opening project from JDeveloper 11.1.1.6

    Hello! I have a problem here which I can't solve. I also asked this question here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14365031/jdeveloper-11-1-2-3-hangs-when-opening-project-from-jdeveloper-11-1-1-6/14369211#14369211 . The whole story in short. I have a JavaEE client-server project in JDeveloper 11.1.1.6, where it works like a charm. Recently I had to upgrade JDeveloper version to the latest 11.1.2.3. The first problem was that the standard procedure of migrating project from the older version of JDeveloper to the newer one did not help: IDE was hanging forever all the time with no apparent (for me) reason, log file was silent about that. Then I tried another way: I just created the same project from the beginning and put there all necessary source files, libraries, set project properties etc. Still nothing, but now found the way to obtain a kind of error at least. I ran C:\Oracle\Middleware\jdeveloper\jdev\bin\jdev.exe from the command line and got the following (e.g. when I started running debug):
    Jan 16, 2013 8:52:09 PM oracle.ideimpl.runner.StarterFactoryDescriptionImpl logError

    Jan 16, 2013 8:52:10 PM oracle.ideimpl.runner.StarterFactoryDescriptionImpl logError

    But I don't know what could be the next step... Could anyone help me? Thanks in advance for your attention!

    Hi,
    not sure if you have a support contract or work for Oracle. In both cases the best option is to file a bug (service request)

  • Photoshop CS3 Hangs when opening files

    PS hangs when opening, duplicating images. The longer it's on the longer the wait. I'm talkin' 15 - 20 seconds. Deleted the prefs multiple times.
    Anybody else having this problem?

    Set your default printer to something local, that is actually hooked up.
    When Photoshop creates the document, it asks for the default printer information - and your printer driver is taking a nap while trying to connect to the printer.

    What kind of advertisement?  In Adobe Reader?  Can you post a screenshot of that: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1070933
    Regarding the crash, can you try disabling Protected Mode through the registry: download, unzip, then run the registry script https://files.acrobat.com/a/preview/49eeb48b-07c5-4502-984c-8a25259914fa

  • Microsoft Word Hangs When Opening Document From SharePoint 2010 Document Library

    I am running into an issue where Word hangs when opening certain files from a document library.  When the issue occurs, Word opens and hangs at the Downloading <Doc URL> stage.  I have tried disabling the SharePoint plugins in IE and that
    makes no difference.  I can download a local copy of the file and open in just fine.  The file in questions exists in a separate document library where it can be opened just fine (The file was copied to the library where the issue is occurring by
    a Workflow).  The issue also has only occurred on .docx files and not .doc, however, not all docx files are having the issue.
    Does anyone have any thoughts on what might be causing this?
    Thanks.

    Hi,
    According to your post, my understanding is that when you opened a certain files from a document library, it hanged at the downloading stage.
    I tried to reproduce the issue, after coping by a workflow, the .docx files opened well in my environment.
    Did the issue occur in other documents libraries? You can copy the files to a new documents library by workflow, then check whether it works.
    For more details we also can check the SharePoint ULS logs.
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS
    Have you check your IE settings (Tools->options->connections->LAN settings->uncheck Automatically detect settings).
    Please also use fidder tools to detect the process. You can download it by the following link.

  • Dreamweaver hangs when opening

    Running DW MX 2004, with updater 7.0.1 applied, on a Sony PC
    with Win XP, DW hangs when opening. I have waited as long as 10
    minutes to see it it every responds, and it doesn't.
    I have to CTRL-ALT-DEL and terminate the application. When
    re-opening, it opens normally.
    Not connected to a network, site files on local C drive.
    It seems to have started happening after applying the 7.0.1
    updater.
    Anyone have any solutions to this?

    Hi JillTW,
    DW 7 had some serious time lags. Search the
    Macromedia.Dreamweaver groups on
    Google's groups for slow DW and look for postings over a year
    old. The fixes
    they discuss may help solve your lockup problem.
    If you are working on a large site, 10 minutes might not be
    enough time for
    DW 7 to resolve cache issues. Look at your Task Manager to
    see if it is
    working (high cpu usage on Dreamweaver.exe) or not
    responding. Even if it is
    not responding a high CPU usuage may mean it is in progress
    and just
    ignoring the keyboard/mouse.
    Also, you might want to try to clear the site cache (or just
    check its
    size - a little one should not take long to process even if
    corupt) before
    starting DW. Adobe tells how to remove the cache here:
    http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=5989f7f4
    Look for the cache in: C:\Documents and
    Settings\<user>\Application
    Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX 2004\Configuration\SiteCache
    The file is named: {yoursitenamehere}.dws
    I suggest moving it to another folder for safe keeping until
    you know if
    this is the problem.
    Upgrading to DW8 is a major improvement in speed.
    Best of luck,

  • Dreamweaver CS6 hangs when opening file

    Starting recently Dreamweaver CS6 hangs for 30 seconds or more, sometimes saying not responding, when I open an HTML file. It appears to do this when the file contains links to external places. To test I created a file that contained nothing except the "new HTML file" basic headers, saved the file, then opened. This test file did not hang.
    I have tried the registry fix "ResolveRemoteURLToIPAddress FALSE" and deleting the personal configuration directory (with Dreamweaver closed). Neither of these solved the problem. Dreamweaver still hangs when opening a file.
    Any other ideas?
    Barry.

    Once the document opens, check the code for any protocol relative links (links that start with // rather than http://) and change them to http:// links, at least during development. It is a know issue to Adobe and will cause what you describe.
    If you don't have any protocol relative links, links to third party sites can cause issues from time to time if their servers are slow or have any kind of conflict with your network. Unless you absolutely can't, you may want to copy those external scripts to your local site and link to the local versions instead, again, during development.

  • InDesign CS6 (8.1) hangs when opening documents, intermittent

    InDesign CS6 (8.1) hangs when opening documents, intermittent, and a document that hangs InDesign, after restarting InDesign, will open fine. I found the following track, Re: InDesign CS5.5 Not Responding  for instructions to "force a hang into a crash" and am posting the crash logs to  pastebin.com
    This is the sample process report OPI_Sample9MAY15 - Pastebin.com
    This is the corresponding InDesign Crash log OPI_InDesignCrashLog9MAY15 - Pastebin.com
    I am hoping that someone might be able to read the logs and tell me what is causing InDesign to hang
    For more background information we are using Mac OS X 10.10.3, Within indesign we are using an editorial management software called "NewsEngin GPS" that utilizes Rohohiko's ADIP ToolAssistant plugin and an advertising management plugin "Pagelink" from Mactive/NewsCycle Solutions. These are the only 3 third party vendors that are being used and of course all claim that their products separately are stable under Mac OS 10.10 and InDesign CS6 v8.1.

    Did you try to export the INDD file to IDML, open that and work with the new files?

  • Hangs when opening project

    Hi,
    I created a project with about 6h footage, all P2 files. Recently, I got a new PC and moved the hard-drive from the onld one (where the project was created) to the new one. When opening the project, the progress bar "jumps" to ~80% and then remains there. I waited over 3 hours, it has no CPU nor I/O Activity at all. The GUI is responsive, I can press canel. I also tried to import the project into a new one with the same result.
    The project was created with CS 4.0.1 and on the new PC I have 4.1.
    I have another project, which contains AVCHD-Footage with only 10mins lengh. This one works perfectly.

    Or do you mean to Adobe?
    Yes
    You are only calling attention to your own OE and showing them there is no bug at all.
    From my point of view, this is a bug. I'd expect a $1000 software to pop up a message, saying that the paths have changed and the media cannot be found. Just like it does when a file is missing. But it just hangs, doing nothing. The fact that I found a workaround (changing the driveletter) helps in the 1st place, but one should not be forced to keep all projects on the same drive letter they were created.
    Whatever is consindered a bug finally, I think it's helpful for adobe to know about this behaviour.

  • Project Professional 2010 and pwa hangs when opening a linked project from PWA on Project Server 2010

    When I open a linked project in Project Professional 2010 from PWA, Project Professional 2010 hangs with the "Links Between Projects ..." dialog box open.  Unable to move or close the dialog box.  Unable to move or close Project Professional
    2010.  The PWA tab on internet explorere is frozen and unable to access although other tabs in IE are accessible.  End up having to reboot to close down project or force the process to end.  I suspect a hidden dialog box is the culprit maybe
    the scheduling conflict dialog box but am unable to access or switch and cannot confirm that there is another dialog box.
    Has anybody else experienced this problem?
    Thanks,
    Julie

    I have seen it hang when trying to open a project schedule even with no external links.
    Project 2013 Pro, Link to schedule is on a PWA on a Project 2007 server.
    If Project 2013 is open before clicking on the link, there is a long delay and the project schedule opens up in the web tab where the link was selected. If Project 2013 is not open, it just hangs and has to be shut down via the task manager.
    No idea why. I can create a link to the shared volume and that works OK. But if I actually try to open MS Project by clicking on the link to a .mpp file it never opens in MS Project.

  • Adobe Acrobat hangs when opening PDFs even after reinstall

    Hello,
    I have 2 new Dell systems that are having issues with Adobe Acrobat.  When opening PDFs, either from an email attachement or file from our server, there is a brief hang that lasts 10-15 seconds, during which Acrobat is unresponsive however the workstation continues to respond.  I've since uninstalled/reinstalled, still no luck.  I've also run updates. Problem unresolved.
    Any ideas

    One of our users is having a similar issue with Adobe Reader 9.2 hanging.  Adobe Reader will eventually open after about 5 seconds.  I've found a work around where if I leave a .pdf document open, any other .pdf I click will open up fine (but a .pdf needs to be left open in Adobe Reader).  This is happening only with one user.  Some of the things I've tried that have not worked: repairing, uninstalling/reinstalling, deleting temp files, opening the file with a different account/profile, downgrading to Adobe Reader 8.1.3.  Anyone have any ideas?  This is only happening to one user at my company.  I've searched the forums here and it looks like other people are having similar issues but there's really not a solution to this.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

  • Hang when opening PDF

    I have a PDF authored in Pages and "printed" to disk that is file shared to my iPad2 via iTunes.
    When I open it in iOS, Reader hangs: sometimes displaying a blank page, but other times it omits elements of the document, sometimes displaying a blank second page.
    When this happens, tap to reveal the index does not function and closing/re-opening the Reader comes right back to the hang state.
    After several minutes the PDF will finally display and the app resumes normal function.
    I have resynced and renamed the PDF but have not figured out what is causing the hang on opening.
    Anyone recognize this bug?

    Is it possible to share the file? This sort of issue is usually file specific and we can often fix the problem if we have the file.
