Hangs my PC App

  • Jonny

    I have followed all instructions and added my GoogleSyncClientID/Secret/KeePassUID to my local user KeePass.config file

    However when I choose upload, or merge, KeePass will just hang. The status bar reads 'Google sync started, please wait...' and the process then hogs my CPU, but nothing else happens.

    Any help?

    I have tried creating a small test file, but this too doesn't work. CPU goes wild, but there is no progress.

    Perhaps you can have a debug switch which can be toggled from Keepass.congig.xml so that a log file is created. This could be more helpful in finding what is (or what is not) going on.

    same issue:

    on "SAVE" or "SYNC" GoogleSync-plugin works fine on PC #1 fine, however, laptops #2 and #3 the status shows:

    • "Google sync started, please wait ..." AND (!) the app hungs up so that KeePass can only be aborted e.g. by the task manager (cancelling the KeePass.exe-process)

    • only on machine #2 and 3# I receive a confirmation google code to my mobile according to the 2-way-activation rule. However, NO WINDOW SHOWS UP TO ENTER THE CONFIRMATION CODE, although

    • Chrome and other applications (Google accounts in Firebird etc.) have been confirmed by the 2-way-activation on all machines.

    • all other programs work fine on the PC while KeePass is blocked

    All PCs work with Win7, keePass 2.26, KeePassSync 1.6, Chrome as default browser, same KeePass.config.xml and sAme GoogleSyncPlugin.plgx. On all PCs google-apps (like google-drive or gmail, MS-outlook etc.) work without addition prompts because all apps are confirmed.

    I have not read anywhere that KeePass GoogleSync Plugin is not ready for the 2-way-Google-access process. However, it seems to be similar to https://sourceforge.net/p/kp-googlesync/discussion/general/thread/e3a835a5/#00b1 (= on the to-do-list of https://sourceforge.net/u/drdi/profile/) except that neither sync nor upload nor download works. All three features got stuck ...

    In KeePass under "Help/Update Check" I get for all PCs in the "Plugins"-section
    Components="(?)Google Sync Plugin" (a "?" in a blue circle)

    wherelse KeePass shows
    Status="up to date

    Any ideas?

    This happened to my setup too.
    The fix was to set GoogleSyncShowAuthenticationForm parameter to true in KeePass.config.xml
    Then it showed a window with google login form, after which it started working again.

      Thank you for response - no difference changing GoogleSyncShowAuthenticationForm parameter to true. Nevertheless, thanx for the hint
