After a couple weeks of working fine with Tortoise 1.6.2, I installed the latest 1.6.6 again, and the lockups returned in just a few minutes. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Tortoise 1.6.6 as suggested, and the lockups remain as before.
I’m running XP, so the dump link doesn’t work for me, and I installed userdump8.1, but can’t make it do anything. No matter what I tell it to save, it does nothing.
I did notice that XP’s error reporting saves the dump files temporarily, to allow you to send them to MS, and I was able to save those files, and will be sending you an email Jon.
I’ve now removed Tortoise 1.6.6, and installed 1.6.3. As I mentioned, I couldn’t find a copy of 1.6.2, so I’m really hoping 1.6.3 works. If not, I have to reinstall my last image backup to get back to 1.6.2.
