arma3server.exe crashes since the last update

« posted: Feb 08, 2015, 07:07 PM »
Hello fellow wastelanders ,

Since the last update my server exe has been crashing randomly from time to time ... in most cases it runs fine for a few days , but every now and then I get a server  crash...

Now this is fine and the scripts "should" restart it , however when the process just sits on the windows error screen the script doesn't actually think the app has closed and doesn't get restarted ...

so how do I actually check if the process has crashed or stop that windows error reporting screen from coming up , blocking the server restart - I am checking the logs now to see what's causing the crashes .

You should be able to disable the "Debug / Close Application" dialog by setting the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\Consent
"DefaultConsent"=dword:00000001

If the setting does not exist then create it.

Also, on your automatic restart scripts, something i do is:
Code: [Select]
TASKKILL /F /IM "arma3server.exe"

Which will forcefully close any arma3server running process.

Will the regkey force the application to shut down on crash?

It makes it so the error prompt doesn't show
