[hpsdr] Closing PowerSDR and cuSDR programs crashing

Hi Doug,


I'm running the program from the default install location (I used the
installer from the OpenHPSDR downloads page for 2.2.7). In my case that is
"C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenHPSDR\PowerSDR RX2 (W5WC)". I checked %APPDATA%
which in my case is: "C:\Users\watson_d\AppData\Roaming\FlexRadio
Systems\PowerSDR RX2 (W5WC)" for the database file by renaming its parent
directory  to "___PowerSDR RX2 (W5WC)___" and copying the whole program
directory from " C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenHPSDR\PowerSDR RX2 (W5WC)" to "
C:\Amateur Radio\Hermes\PowerSDR RX2 (W5WC)". This solved the crashing :-).
The only thing remaining is that is still asks me if I really want to run
the program every time I launch it. I can live with that, was just curious
if it was me only or if others noticed the same thing.


Thanks for the quick response.

Hi Dave,


The trouble you are describing could indicate that the database.xml file has
not been deleted by PowerSDR. Please look at the directory that holds the
database.xml file and insure it is deleted.

It may still be a permissions issue since you have similar trouble with


If PowerSDR is asking you permission to run this is an indication that the
directory you are running them from is not safe. I get this when I run
PowerSDR from a network drive.


Did you use the installer program for PowerSDR?

Is anyone besides me having issues closing the PowerSDR and cuSDR programs?
I'm using Windows 7/64 bit on an 8 core 8gb RAM, Dell Studio XPS 8100. When
I close any of the HPSDR programs they open a dialog stating they have
crashed and want to know if I want to debug them. I have this problem on
both versions 2.2.3 and the new 2.2.7 of PowerSDR. It must be something I
set in the configuration or something particular to my Windows setup. I did
do a full database reset which didn't help. I do run just about all the SDR
programs (Genesis, SoftRock, Flex, Rocky ...) so I'm thinking it might be
some DLL in another PowerSDR branch in my path but thought I would check
with this group to see if it was unique to my setup or if others are
experiencing the same issue. The only real problem this presents is that the
programs don't store the configuration options I have selected across
sessions. The crash at the end must be happening before it has a chance to
write the config to the storage location being used. This means I have to
reconfigure them each time I launch them. One other thing I have noticed
that is different about the HPSDR programs is that they always ask me if I
really want to run them when I launch them. None of the other SDR programs I
run do this. One other thing that may be significant is that usually I'm
running multiple instances of SDR programs at the same time (Flex, Genesis,
PowerSDR-IQ, HPSDR...).


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
