Re: Sometimes Shutter freezes if the action is close window

Thank you very much!
I will use it, if Shutter should freeze again.

Re: Sometimes Shutter freezes if the action is close window

Great news (problem identified and you can fix it with changing the window enumeration method):
Today it happens and I got a problem signature. It is the reader_sl.exe process (Adobe Acrobat SpeedLauncher, which can't be disabled anymore with version 17.8.30051/2017). The reader_sl process doesn't start with windows anymore. It seems to be, that it starts now only before Adobe Acrobat Reader will search for updates.

Then I have used your command line enum tool:
enum1: shows all windows but didn't finished (no command prompt after all windows are listed!).
enum2-4: list the same windows and then the command prompt.
enum 5: list the same windows, but without its title names (only the numbers).
enum 6: list more windows, but also without any window titles.

I have tested it also with my autoit script and this has worked at the same time (while reader_sl.exe process was running and Shutter was freezed). It seems to be, that autoit uses one of the enums 2-4.

Edit: If I kill the reader_sl.exe process while shutter is running and freezed by the dropdown menu of the "close window" action, it works immediately and shows all open windows.

Re: Sometimes Shutter freezes if the action is close window

That is excellent news!

The alternative window enumeration method has already made it into the latest release candidate of Shutter v4.

You can download it here:

Please give it a try, but note that it has just undergone a migration to a completely new development environment, so it might have few kinks.
