First of all, thanks for a great program. I'm still learning to use it, there is SO much here to learn, and so many different ways to do it, it'll take me a while before I can get it all down. Plus, as a new Astrophotographer, my data sets are limited.
I'm getting computer lock ups, randomly and unexpectedly. I have a Windows Pro machine, upgraded from Win 7 Ultimate, AMD quad core Phenom II running at 3GHz, 8GB of RAM, several hard drives. StarTools is running on the boot drive. I've gone through the drives and optimized them, so it shouldn't be the drives. Actually, before, I had the program running on a separate physical hard drive, and it also exhibited the same behavior there, as well.
I use a hardware monitor to watch the core activity, and at times I've seen all four cores max out at 100% utilization, but during that period, no lock up. Yet, this last time, I had a LRGB, no Luminence, loaded, and I started the AutoDev process. Hardware indicator was anywhere from 4% on one core to 50 something on another, and just lock up.
Since the program runs without installing itself, I created a new directory, and run it from there, but it does the same thing.
I am open to suggestions.
Thank you in advance!
