@galakanokis ran into an issue where Cortex wouldn’t launch on a system where he had just installed it. There was not error message that would pop up, but in the Application section of the Windows Logs it showed this cryptic error:
Application: Cortex.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception. Exception Info: System.IO.IOException Stack: at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32, System.String) at System.IO.FileStream.WriteCore(Byte, Int32, Int32) at System.IO.FileStream.FlushWrite(Boolean) at System.IO.FileStream.Flush(Boolean) at System.Diagnostics.TextWriterTraceListener.Flush() at System.Diagnostics.TraceSource.Flush() at MtiFilm.Core.Extensions.LogMessage(System.Diagnostics.TraceEventType, System.String, Int32, Int32) at CohogGui.App.Main()
Turns out that the
c:\temp\myListener.log file had grown to over 100G from running Convey over the years which uses the same underlying logging system.
After deleting all the files in
c:\temp the application launched successfully. We also ran disk cleanup on the
c:\ drive and removed all temporary files, as I have seen that cause issues for some processes in the past, though it didn’t have anything to do with this particular issue.
