(Client 0.11.12 -) Client 0.11.14, Windows 10 1709 - Reboot (or other power event) fails

  • Same problem again: 1135

    I started with a fresh Windows 10 1709. In the beginning the client initiated power events successfully.
    Then I started to rebuild my machine. And now after a couple of apps like browsers, java, office (no regedit or something comparable at all) the reboot fails again.

  • client 0.11.15

    Power events are executed on many (most?) machines again! Thank you for your work!

    @TrialAndError phew, I’m glad the issue is mostly fixed. Thanks for helping me debug it!

  • client 0.11.15

  • On the “fresh” Win10 1709 switching to “Delayed” worked. The client 0.11.14 executed power events again.

    On the “old” Win 10 - no change. And either with 0.11.14 nor the nightly any events a logged in the Windows log files around the time the error is logged in fog.log.

    @TrialAndError could you perform a few debugging steps for me? It’d help narrow down why the shutdown is failing:

    • Check the Windows log for any reported issues around 17.02.2018 23:46
    • Set the client to Automatic (Delayed) startup, and see if that solves the issue
    • If both of those fail, try running this build instead: https://build.jbob.io/Client/nightly/02-18-2018-powerdebug-01/SmartInstaller.exe . It will hopefully log a more specific error message, but you’d need to first uninstall any existing client on the machine, and reset encryption data on it before installing
