Description

Using AdiIRC 3.0 64-bit on Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit. AdiIRC silently closes with no error messages of any kind. Is there a way to enable a debug log?

AdiIRC doesn't just close by itself, it also asks whether to close or not first.

What were you doing at the time of the close?

Are you sure it's actually closed, e.g are there a AdiIRC process in the task manager?

Do you have any programs that modifies windows default behavior?

You can try check your Event viewer for any .NET related hard crashes.

If you are using any scripts or plugins, I suggest disable them all, then enable them one by one until the problem occurs.

You could also try backup and remove config.ini, then slowly change options until the problem occurs.

I left it overnight like always. When I got up, the task-bar icon was not underlined, and clicking it resulted in AdiIRC opening normally. There are no other adiirc processes in the task manager. This happened at least 4 times so far.

I do not have any programs modifying Windows' behaviour.

I am not using any scripts or plug-ins.

Reproducing this is rather hard because it usually happens after a few days. I will attempt removing config.ini, I guess.

That does indeed look like a hard .NET framework crash which indicates this is some kind of bug in the .NET framework, the dll causing the crash seems interesting though.

I don't know all the places where the .NET framework uses CRYPT32.dll, but it probably does for anything related to SSL.

Do you use a SSL client certificate by any chance, also is it possible this is happening at a time when AdiIRC is connecting to a SSL enabled server?

Just to rule out any known .NET issues, you could try run this repair tool https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30135.

Also you could try update to 3.1 beta (perfectly safe), it's possible something was changed so the error doesn't trigger, you can get it by typing /betaup.

Also I have seen some random hard crashes on unstable overclocks, is your computer overclocked by any chance?

#4

Updated by Rei Kamigishi 3 months ago

I am indeed using TLS (connecting to a ZNC instance). The .NET repair tool found no issues, it seems.

My PC runs on standard clock speeds, I have never seen any value in overclocking and it would likely introduce issues into my work on FreeBSD's kernel and my C# .NET projects.

I will try updating to beta.

#5

Updated by Per Amundsen 3 months ago

Good to know it's not a corrupt .NET installation and not a overclock issue.

Just realized that your hard crash is silent which is not normal, usually there is a popup dialog which explains the program crashed with the same information as in the event viewer, but if you are a .NET developer, you probably also have visual studio and/or a debugger installed, which should trigger a ask to debug on hard crashes.

It's a very puzzling issue.

#6

Updated by Rei Kamigishi 3 months ago

Yes, I do have VS2017 installed and it is indeed a silent “disappeared from task list” crash with no pop-up.

I could try starting it from a VS debugger session I guess?

#7

Updated by Per Amundsen 3 months ago

You can try, it should give a assembly trace when it crashes, unfortunately I am not very good at reading assembly, but maybe there are some more clues in the trace.

#8

Updated by Rei Kamigishi 3 months ago

Amusingly enough there was nothing in VS. It just went back to Ready state after the same crash on beta.

The program '[25288] AdiIRC.exe' has exited with code -1073741819 (0xc0000005) 'Access violation'.
The program '[25288] AdiIRC.exe: Program Trace' has exited with code 0 (0x0).

By the way I think I have never had this issue in 2.x.

That is very bizarre, never seen that before.

Unfortunately without a stack trace or a disassembly trace, there isn't enough information to figure out the cause.

You mentioned 2.X didn't have this issue, you could downgrade for now, just replace the current AdiiRC.exe with one from https://adiirc.com/download.php?o=true and disable update check in options -> General.

I found this on stackoverflow: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/41768523/unhandled-exception-calling-certcreatecertificatechainengine-function

It seems there may be unitialised members in a TLS-related class somewhere?

#11

Updated by Per Amundsen 3 months ago

AdiIRC does not use this function, it's possible the .NET framework does, but that's out of my hands, also keep in mind many AdiIRC users including myself uses TLS to ZNC servers or directly for weeks at the time with no problems,

Without the trace, it's hard to tell if it's even related to TLS.

It did produce crash dumps though it had a default of 1 dump per exception; I will wait for another crash to see if there are more.

I can then archive and upload the crash dump if that will help.

Attaching the report produced by the tool's analyser.

#14

Updated by Per Amundsen 3 months ago

The call stack didn't reveal much, except it seems to be happening in a thread, which might explain why there is a lack of .NET stack trace.

I'd like to see the dump if possible, you can email it (or a link to it) at .

#15

Updated by Rei Kamigishi 3 months ago

I have sent the link to an archive with the two dumps from the same crash.

According to the debug service there are lots of unhandled exceptions happening during the client's startup in mscorlib etc. but I am guessing those are completely unrelated.

Also: I switched to the 32-bit version of AdiIRC and so far it has yet to crash.

#16

Updated by Per Amundsen 3 months ago

The minor mscorlib exceptions are normal.

That is odd considering the 32 bit and 64 bit is exactly the same, except the 32 bit is forced to run in 32 bit mode.

Thanks for sending the dump file, I tried to find some clues, but i am unable to understand the disassembly, I will try to learn how to read it but it will probably take a while, meanwhile you can keep using 32 bit, 64 bit has no advantages.

There doesn't seem to be any information in the dump related to .NET which I find very odd, unless they are in the "?? ??" entries.

#17

Updated by Rei Kamigishi 3 months ago

I guess I will go back to 2.x since the 32-bit version just closed on me too. Thank you for the suggestions nevertheless.

I also ran memtest recently and there seems to be nothing wrong with my PC's RAM… I suspected hardware issues but it's just AdiIRC acting like this. I will try reinstalling Windows somewhere in June to exclude software issues as well.

#18

Updated by Per Amundsen 3 months ago

If you have the ability/time, It would be interesting to see if running it in a virtual machine like hyper-v, vmware or virtualbox on your machine triggers the same issue.

#19

Updated by Rei Kamigishi 3 months ago

A small update: I have not yet got a VM running but today something really strange happened: I had two instances of AdiIRC 3 beta running, one the usual way, the other with no windows whatsoever. Both instances crashed at the same time.

#20

Updated by Per Amundsen 3 months ago

When you say no windows, do you mean you no Server/Channel windows? Different config file as well?

Also, was it at your local time 00:00 by any chance?

I have been looking for threads/timers which could involve any type of tls, one of them is update check, maybe try disable it for a while, see if it helps.

#21

Updated by Rei Kamigishi 3 months ago

Yes, no windows open whatsoever.

The other crash did not happen in crypt32.dll, however, just like in three of the cases listed in reply #2 above. I will try to get dumps for this simultaneous crash.

#22

Updated by Per Amundsen 3 months ago

Very interesting, that makes me believe this is not related to AdiIRC but instead maybe the whole .NET runtime is crashing and then throwing a error in whatever module the .NET runtime was using at the time, e.g reading irc messages through ssl in the readthread,

Assuming you are using .NET 4+, do you have any other .NET 4+ apps running, if not, could you try having something like https://getsharex.com/ running in the background and see if it also crashes at that exact time?

#23

Updated by Rei Kamigishi 3 months ago

ShareX is running 24/7 and had no crashes so far. It's all getting really weird, to be honest. Maybe I should really do a complete Windows reinstall to exclude any issues with the OS itself.

It may be that the 1803 update is at fault?

#24

Updated by Per Amundsen 3 months ago

I don't know if something broke in 1803, but I am running I and smany other users are running it without any issues so far.

Instead of reinstall, I would suggest trying a virtual machine, e-g virtualbox and hyper-v are both free.

#25

Updated by Rei Kamigishi 2 months ago

Had no chance to get Windows 10 installed in a VM yet but I used imagecfg to restrict AdiIRC to single processor mode (no SMP) and it has not crashed for a whole week so far with 3 server connexions and update checks enabled. It seems like it is indeed a race condition.

It is still very weird that it still happened with update checks off and with no windows/connexions open.

#26

Updated by Per Amundsen 2 months ago

Wow that is the weirdest workaround I have ever seen in a .NET program, very hard to imagine how SMP could be a factor in this case.

Glad you found a workaround though and I am sorry you are having such a hard time with AdiIRC.

#27

Updated by Per Amundsen 2 months ago

Also to satisfy my curiosity, is this some kind of dual XEON system, or a NUMA/AMD cpu ?

#28

Updated by Per Amundsen 2 months ago

Wonder if this is related to your issue https://aloiskraus.wordpress.com/2018/06/16/why-skylakex-cpus-are-sometimes-50-slower-how-intel-has-broken-existing-code/.

Relevant change from https://github.com/Microsoft/dotnet-framework-early-access/blob/master/release-notes/build-3621/dotnet-build-3621-changes.md#clr

Improved spin-waits in several synchronization primitives to perform better on Intel Skylake and more recent microarchitectures. [495945, mscorlib.dll, Bug]

#29

Updated by Rei Kamigishi 2 months ago

That would be really weird as I use an Ivy Bridge CPU (i7-3770K). Not sure if race conditions can actually happen because of longer spin-wait timers; pointer assignments should be atomic no matter if locks/semaphores are in use or not…

As I see this, a pointer operation stops being atomic and a thread running on a different core accesses the pointer midway through something like a null assignment (the first 32 bits are already changed and the last 32 are due to be changed in the next opcode in the pipeline), possibly failing a null check and then de-referencing it with a half-broken address or just straight trying to de-reference a null pointer depending on whether the pointer value is assigned to a different pointer before a check, or just checked by itself.

The real puzzle here is why does mscorlib fail at thread safety and concurrency so spectacularly and only in this particular application…

#30

Updated by Per Amundsen 2 months ago

Funny because I have been developing AdiIRC on a 3770k since 2012.

Lots of things are not thread safe in .NET, proper care must be made, but in all cases I have discovered, the .NET framework throws a proper exception/stack trace, it never hard crashes into windows.

Anyways I just noticed that post and it got me thinking, worth a shot :)

#31

Updated by Per Amundsen 2 months ago

I made a build which disables most timers and threads I could think of, maybe let it run for a while with no connections and see if it crashes, https://adiirc.com/build2/AdiIRC64.exe.

Got it and will do, thank you.

It still crashed in the same manner.

I wonder if this is some .NET bug? Is this build targeting 4.7.2?

#34

Updated by Per Amundsen 2 months ago

It's compiled for .NET 4.5.

Have you tested the .NET 2.0 version https://adiirc.com/AdiIRC64_20_3.1.zip ?

I have a test build for .NET 4.7, but it's broken atm, will add a link when I get it fixed.

#35

Updated by Rei Kamigishi about 2 months ago

The .NET 2.0 build crashes as well.

I found these threads:

Both describe crashes in crypt32.dll happening with .NET 4.x and 2.0 applications that ran fine on 1709.

It seems it might actually be a bug in crypt32.dll… What if I put the 1709 version of that DLL (if I manage to find it somewhere) side by side with the .exe? Would it load it over the system-wide one?

Update: it will not, probably needs app.config.

#36

Updated by Rei Kamigishi about 2 months ago

Attaching 1709's crypt32.dll for reference in case it would be possible to make an app.config that would force loading this. I am, sadly, not well versed in these…

#37

Updated by Per Amundsen about 2 months ago

Those forums posts makes it more likely there is a windows and/or .NET bug in 1803, but not for everybody (maybe limited to windows server version).

AdiIRC does not target crypt32.dll directly, it goes AdiIRC -> .NET framework -> Windows dll's.

Guess we have to wait and see if microsoft fixes it.

#38

Updated by Rei Kamigishi about 2 months ago

There is also the mscorlib.dll crash but I am guessing it is likely triggered by crypt32.dll (either of them changes some shared pointer in a non-atomic way).

I guess I will get by with imagecfg for now. Thank you for your help with this.

#39

Updated by Rei Kamigishi about 2 months ago

Regarding crypt32.dll replacement (for debug purposes): I think it could be possible to get it to use a local copy, but that would require the application to not have a manifest as per https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms682600

#40

Updated by Per Amundsen about 2 months ago

AdiIRC does not load/use this DLL, the .NET framework does.

To test this hypothesis you can install Windows 10 build 1803 in a virtual machine to isolate it from any non windows related issues such as installed programs/tools/libraries/settings etc. If it crashes in this stock format, you can install Windows 10 build 1709 in a separate virtual machine to see if there is a regression.

These test tells us everything we need to know.
