I have a user of one of my applications that is getting exceptions when his W10 PC has been running for a couple of weeks or more. The exceptions are only in my application and often occur when he hovers over the main menu items. Once the issue is seen, he can restart my application and reproduce it over and over. Rebooting the PC however sees everything return to normal.
I always shut my PCs down at the end of the day, so they’re always pretty clean / fresh when I’m trying to track down reports like this. I’ve never been able to reproduce the exceptions he’s seeing.
How common is it for people to leave their PCs on for weeks / months at a time? Does anyone have any ideas on how whatever baggage Windows is collecting over the weeks can cause an issue with my application?
I’ve asked the user to check free memory both up startup and when he’s getting the exceptions. Could it be that RAM is getting fragmented by other applications (he seems to have a lot of Chrome tabs open) and mine is having trouble getting what it needs?
