We have started using animated GIFs heavily in Teststand popups for about the last year and half. As we have used this feature more and more, we have had more and more reports of Teststand hanging after acknowledging the popups.
The problem is very intermittant. But it is reproducible. See attached files. All the sequence does is call a non-modal teststand popup over and over that displays an animated image. The popup is set to timeout after one second (just for convenience of reproducing the problem). The sequence consistently hangs within a couple minutes. Behavior is the same in the sequence editor or the CVI user interface. If the sequence is changed such that no image is displayed by the popup, the sequence does not hang.
We are using Teststand 4.0.1f1. Let me know how to resolve this, as it is quite a major issue with us.
Any help appreciated.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
