Scala Player Application Monitoring
« on: August 06, 2012, 06:11:05 AM »

I have installed Scala Player 5 on win7 64-bit platform. The application keeps on crashing now and then, with the message: "The Program has encountered the problem and needs to close. Sorry for inconvenience."

I want to develop the windows batch file script which can monitor that crashed state of the Scala Player 5 application so that I may know in time when the crash occurs.

Can any one help me with how I can accomplish that. I think even the basic way to monitor an application running on windows can be suitable; then I will map that specifically for Scala Player 5.

I will be very glad to receive help from you.

i think a better solution is to disable the application error reporting interface, so if scala for same reason crash it would automatically restart the pc.
you can disable it by modifying a registry key. You can create a .reg file with text below and then execute it:

Code: [Select]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting]

SInce "Player Health Monitoring" in Content Manager5 will already tell you when a Player crashes--the "even better option" would be to figure out why the Player is crashing on your platform.

There obviously is something wrong with that system:  OS Load, OS Configuration, Device Drivers--there is something wrong with that machine!
