Unable to interrupt Igor process after some time
Tue, 10/22/2019 - 11:06 am
Lately I encountered an issue with interrupting Igor process (aborting).
In a program with some XOPs which talk to the GPU and a digitizer, initially when Igor was first started, say, if I perform a 10-trigger long acquisition loop, I can stop the acquisition mid-way by clicking the abort button. Also, when the process starts, I can see the Igor small, black and white cross loading icon, as well as a counter I implemented on the Igor panel increasing.
However, usually after using the Igor for a while, if I start the same 10-trigger acquisition, the Igor window will look like it is not responsive. However, the actual process is still running and it finishes in a similar amount of time as usual. The difference is that the Igor loading icon does not appear, and there is no way I can abort the acquisition.
I am not sure what was triggering this, great if you can provide any ideas. Thanks.
