#1493 TeXnicCenter 2.02 64Bit freezes on save/end of compiling


Dear Developers,

inexplicably I was experiencing regular freezing with TeXnicCenter 2.02 64Bit on a Windows 8.1 Pro Update laptop, using MikTeX 2.9 64bit as well as SumatraPDF as a viewer.
(Post processing is set up for the nomenclature package and glossary package)

  • TeXnicCenter would freeze on saving
  • TeXnicCenter would freeze at the end of compiling
    The freezing was not related to the size of the document or the number of files.

-> Reinstallation of TeXnicCenter has not resolved the issue.
-> Reinstallation of MikTeX did not solve the issue.

The issue was not present from the start (when I first installed TeXnicCenter 2.0.2 64Bit), I suspect it may relate to some runtime or similar which received an update at some point.

A temporary workaround which works for me is using the 32Bit version of TeXnicCenter which has no problems.

    I'm experiencing the same with TeXnicCenter 2.02 stable (64 bit) using MikTeX 2.9 and SumatraPDF. Freezes randomly for 5-20 seconds when saving and compiling independently on project. I've tried with three different projects.

    I just reinstalled TeXnicCenter and MikTeX but it made no difference.

    However, I tried running TeXnicCenter as administrator and I haven't experienced any freezes since.

    Edit: I'm running Windows 7

    I am experiencing the same issue, with TexnicCenter 2.02 stable 64 bit, Miktex 2.9 and using sumatrapdf.
    The 32bit version works without freezing for me.
