is there a way vvvv terminates when the user presses the power button of the computer? I’ve tried to use the /shutup commandline switch and also writeprotected the patch, at least I’m getting no more save confirmation. Also I tried to tweak the registry with keys like “AutoEndTasks” and “EnableForcefulShutdown”. But still when I press the powerbutton the renderer dissapears and a windows error shows, saying that vvvv (or whatever it random name is) has interrupted the shutdown process.
Any help is vvvvery apreciated
please see https://discourse.vvvv.org/t/10996 try latest alpha and report back here if that solved your problem.
OK, after one day I found a solution now.
The registry mods in the referred thread I did before and this didn’t help. Also I don’t want to use an alpha version (personally I like them, but to release software as an everlasting beta is strange enough and for production sets I want stability over all).
So here is my solution:
I write a kill-batch file withh
start c:\windows\system32\taskkill.exe /F /IM vvvv.exe* /T
then I run that script automated at shutdown time via gpedit.msc > Computer Config > Windows Settings > Scripts
Often it helps to get a second opinion to get to a brandnew idea.
Reg tweaks worked for me in windows 7 home. gpedit.msc is only available on windows 7 professional.
That’s interesting, for me the Registry tweaks didn’t work on Win 7 professional 64Bit with beta31 x86. I was told the problem is from an updated 3rd party library. How long are your words?
