[WD19] Debugger has slowed to a crawl - Solved

Startbeitrag von Al am 09.12.2014 09:12

Hello All

I am not sure exactly when it happened but my debugger has been on a go slow for the past week or so.
It takes about 4 seconds between either pressing F7 or clicking the "Step into" arrow before the next line of code is executed.

It is the same for the 32 and 64 bit versions of Windev and I am running the latest version -56s

Rebooting doesn't help and neither does turning of the antivirus (Avast)
The CPU goes from 0 to 5,12,13,11,0 % over the time it takes between first pressing F7 and the next line is ready to execute and I have 20+gb free RAM

Any suggestions ?


18/12/2014 Update:
I loaded Windev and the project onto another computer and the debugger ran as normal so it must be an OS issue.
Quite odd though because there are no odd process or services running on my normal computer and nothing chewing up RAM or CPU cycles that I can see.
I will roll back a few weeks on a restore point and see how that goes.

06/02/15 Update
Finally fixed this problem for good - I hope
It appears to be a registry issue as in trying to solve a different issue, I deleted the entire PCSoft registry and after that the slow debug problem was fixed.

It may be that we have to include a registry nuking as part of our usual (delete cpl, project.env etc) bag of tricks to solve unexplained problems ?

Al

Hi Al,

Have you tested this in a different browser. My first guess is there is some communication problem between WB and your browser. If it speeds up in a different browser then I would start disabling plugins for the problem browser until things speed up.

Cheers!

Hello Ken

Thanks for the thought but the problem is in Windev. It is project size related as small projects still debug quickly. With the large project is is getter slower all the time as the project grows.

It can't be lack of hardware, the windows index is 7.8, I have 32gb of Ram with plenty spare and an SSD. I may have hit some internal limit in Windev.

Hi Al,
maybe there is a broken variable or expression in the watch-list of the debugger.
This could also slow down debugging, while WD is trying to evaluate it every step.

Hello Arie

I checked that and even clearing them out and just inserting a STOP is just as slow.
Thanks anyway.
