I use 8.1 so that's not a problem in itself (though I did have problems with 8.0)
Do you get the segvio before or after you ener your password?
In any case, we can only offer guesses (security product nuking the client because Windows UAC doesn't feel it was installed "by an admin" for example), but we might be able to guess less if you send us a copy of your log file.
To do that:
* shut down the There Client (already done! :-)
* start the There client and run until the crash
* find this file:
hey guys im coming back to there.com after a few years and i just bought a new comp running windows 8.1 i downloaded there client and as soon as i try to log in it gives me a segmintation violation sometimes it also tells me its a kernel.dll thing ive tried changing to ogl from dx8 and nothing ive tried updating all my drivers and nothing ive tried updating flash and same nothing can some one please explain to me what im doing wrong and/or is there a easy fix or even if not easy is there anything i can do to rectify this problem. i just want to play there again so please help me if you can=) thx Read More...
There are two kinds of log files you can delete. The first is the normal log file
It starts out new each time you launch the client and grows as things are logged.
If you run the program long enough, however, that this primary log exceeds 1GB in length, it is closed and renamed, and a new There.log is started. If you leave the client running for days and days, you can generate quite a few of these even under normal circumstances.
These renamed spillover logs are never deleted automatically, and you are always free to delete them at any time.
The MYSTERY is just why some people seem to generate much more log than others. Presumably there is some innocent action in the code that just logs a lot more than it needs to. Unfortunately, to determine if this is the case, we need to see the log in question (and it doesn't seem to happen for us). But since by definition such logs are a gigabyte in size, we are not prepared to receive any such file for analysis :-)
So we're waiting for some nerdy type with the proper tools to let us know what the noisy logging is, if any...
The spillover logs will have names like:
and again, delete 'em when you see 'em, and if you're a nerd who notices you can generate a gigabyte of log in less than an hour, and you have tools suitable for grepping huge files, feel free to look for suspiciously repetitive logging and let us know about it, thanks! Read More...
