Using Rainmeter.API.LogF crashes Rainmeter

Post by death.crafter »

Using Rainmeter.API.LogF crashes Rainmeter sometimes, in C# plugins. I can't recreate the problem in a new empty plugin. Is this a known issue?

I have no idea, as I have never run into this issue with the logging functions. Normally, I would say maybe there is an issue with threading, but the log functions should be thread safe.

Even if you reference an invalid variable or something, it should still not crash (but usually will log gibberish) - at least I have never had it crash for "bad" data.

:confused:

Since you mentioned threading, I was using LogF in a function that was calling an async function. I will try it out tomorrow with an example plugin.
