  1. Hello all, Sorry to revive an old topic. I am in the process of finding a new laptop to be our production machine, and I'm interested in an MSI laptop, specifically the MSI GL75 17,3" FHD 120Hz. So I found this topic discussing problems with the MSI. Did OP or anyone else figure out the cause of his problems? Was it that the 120hz display was causing troubles? The specs for the laptop I'm interested in, are as follows: MSI GL75 17,3" FHD 120Hz GeForce GTX1660Ti 6GB, Core i7-9750H, 16GB RAM, Anti-reflex, MSI Matrix Display, 120 Hz, 512 GB SSD - (M.2) PCIe - NVM Express (NVMe) , Windows 10 Home Advanced. Has anyone else had success using MSI GL laptops has production machines? Or would you recommend something else in this price range (max 2000$) Thanks!
  2. Hi there. I have a backup display machine I am trying to install and tweak win10 pro on. I have read and attempted to follow the official tweaking instructions, but I guess since they are made with Enterprise in mind - some of them wont work. For instance installing the recommended windows update (kb4090913). The error I get is " The update is not applicable to your computer". Does anyone have any success with tweaking win10 pro, finding an win10 update that is stable for running WO? Can you follow the official tweaking guide at all, or do I have to just wing it and do everything manually? Thanks! I've attached the system information (sorry for the formatting, quick copy/paste on a friday afternoon) sysinfo_backupWO.txt
  3. Sorry to revive such an old post, but the same issue happened again. (I work at the same theatre as OP) Last night during a show, everything was working perfectly until at the end a cue was not run on the display machine - but was running on the production laptop. Which to me indicates the same issue. I have not been able to reproduce this error though. Our network guy says the switches are running as they should, so he thinks the issue is with WO, the production laptop or the display machine. No error messages in WO or anything, nothing in the log. Is there any network (or otherwise) settings in the production laptop itself I should be aware of regarding this issue? Or in the display machine? I just want to eliminate that possibility before I go back to blaming the network/switch.. It is only on this stage with this setup of prod. laptop & display machine we've experienced this. On another stage we have a similar setup, but never seen this particular issue. Thanks for any pointers you might have.. Å
  4. Thanks for your help, everyone. I'm on day 5 now without the bug occurring so we may have found it. For posterity, what I did then was delete the tasks inn the task scheduler that nvidia had put there. For some reason it would not let me delete them directly there - so I had to go into windows/system32/tasks and delete them manually there. They did not reappear after rebooting. I did also uninstall Apple Software Update.
  5. The only item in the startup folder is Watchpoint. However, your tip about checking Nvidia led me to some schedule tasks. Namely: NvNodeLauncer, NvProfileUpdaterDaily, NvProfileUpdaterOnLogon, NvTmMon, NvTmRep and NvTmRepOnLogon. Also in the installed programs I find Nvidia Geforce Experiene. So maybe Nvidia is the culprit somehow? Which of these prosesses should I deactivate? I also found that disk defragmentation was enabled, scheduled for wednesdays at 4pm.. I've disabled this also, but it doesnt account for the times this bug's occurred not on wednesdays. I've attached a list of the planned tasks as well as the installed programs, if anyone has further suggestions as to trimming the computer. Some translation for the task planner: klar = ready, i kø= queued Utløsere = triggers Pålogging = Logging on Brukere = Users hver dag = every day. Sorry for the inconvenience of the norwegian language!
  6. I changed mine to Names today and still I got this bug, so I dont know.. I dont use any NDI or 3D projectors. Its just a basic 4 output normal show, 1 SDI input from blackmagic capture card. Whats weird is that when I opened task manager, there are 5 instances running. 1 of which is named just Dataton Watchout - not Watchpoint. They are all apparently running ("kjører"= "running"). And when I end the process "Dataton Watchout", all goes back to normal! The displays go back to showing whatever they are supposed to be showing in proper full screen mode, no nonsense. I've checked both the watchout logs and the windows event viewer - no one shows anything of note. Anyone got any ideas?
  7. Sorry for spamming both this thread and the other one with this image, but alas - the error happened again even after uninstalling what I thought were the culprits (iums and mse) operating in the background. As I gather from the thread about the minimized windows and latency bug, does changing from using the IP adresse to define the display to name help? Addendum: I see now in the Network window that the display machine does indeed have a Computer Name - but we've always used IP. Changed each display now to the Computer Name instead. Lets see how that turns out.
  8. Does it look like this? Because this is what happens on our display machine. They are also defined with IP and not name..
  9. I have now uninstalled both Microsoft Security Essentials and Intel Update Manager, so hopefully that will have a positive impact.
  10. Yes, so it would seem. Iumsvc is apparently the intel update manager or somesuch, and together with the antimalware I guess they are still working in the background. I will check if its possible to uninstall both or manually disable them from starting up. A colleague of mine working right now, told me it had happened again. When he now closed watchpoint on the display machine, he saw that it had opened up 5 other instances of watchpoint. Is this part of watchouts attempts to regain control or something? This must've happened overnight, because everything was fine when we left it last night.
  11. Thanks again for your follow-up. I did go through the tweaking list again, and the only aberration I could find was that it still was indexing the start menu. I tried to disable that, but couldnt figure it out. Where did you find the line of servicegateway.intel.com? I think the regular findings of Microsoft Antimalware is weird. Windows Defender, Firewall and Update are all disabled. Is Microsoft Antimalware a program independent of those 3 mentioned? Åsmund

  13. Thanks for your reply. So, the watchout-logs for yesterday (when I had the error) say nothing other than "Starting watchpoint" which I guess is logged after I restarted the computer. Should I assume then that watchpoint itself did not crash? Looking at the windows event viewer, there were loads of entries - but there were entries also on every day that seemed pretty routine. Like "Microsoft Antimalware has discovered an error by trying to update signatures" (translated from the - sadly - norwegian error log). Along with that one, were entries from something called "iumsvc 255". Each error entry from iumsvc notes that it cant find the event description for this event ID, but the following information was included: Exception : ('Device Profile Push Failure', ConnectionError(MaxRetryError(""HTTPSConnectionPool(host='servicegateway.intel.com', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /DeviceProfile/Service.svc/Rest/DeviceProfileManager?deviceId=73d6cf7b-56b6-41c4-9ca3-038c0f4ac9b7&DomainId=4E00205A-2AB1-4423-8F77-CC25B82CDE1D (Caused by <class 'socket.gaierror'>: [Errno 11004] getaddrinfo failed)"",),)) Looking at entries here on past days which didnt have any troubles, I saw that this one stuck out: Advarsel 18/10/2018 16:14:34 e1rexpress 27 Ingen "Intel(R) I210 Gigabit Network Connection Network link is disconnected.

I have attached the log from the windows event viewer from yesterday. It is sadly in norwegian, but the source IDs should be the same - as well as the error codes. Addendum: Browsed a bit further back in the watchout-logs and saw these: "Watchpoint exited abnormally (code 3), restarting" "Watchpoint exited abnormally (code 1073807364), restarting" But since they were not on the date I had the trouble, I disregarded them. But maybe interesting? 181018.txt
  14. I've had this issue a couple of times now. I was projecting an image across two displays, then suddenly the watchout-logo and the windows taskbar appear. Offline/online does not help, and I have to restart watchpoint. And when I do go online again after restart, the watchout-logo flashes a few times, then everything is back to normal. Today I was starting up the watchout project, went online and the same thing happened. Any ideas? Running 6.2.2, Win7 tweaked.
