Forums -> UltraMon™ -> Ultramon 3.0 Beta 2.1 fatal error crash on Vista

I'm getting a regular crash on my dual monitor setup;

Source file .\sysmenu.cpp
Line: 328
Return value: 0
Last error: 1456

The taskbar still stays spread across my 2 monitors but the app is gone from the system tray.

Does this happen as soon as you open the first application after starting the system, or only when you start a specific application?

I also get a crashed UltraMon which I have figured out happens when I am using MS Word 2007 with Adobe Acrobat 8.0 plugin turning the on screen document into a .pdf document. Shortly thereafter Word hangs, and then parts of UltraMon start to go. By going to Task Manager, processes, I end both UltraMon entries, and then start it up again. It works fine until the next time with Word and Adobe.

Which version of Windows and UltraMon are you using?

So far I haven't been able to reproduce this issue, I tested with Word 2007, Acrobat 8 and UltraMon 3.0.2 on 64-bit Vista.

It doesn't seem to correlate to any specific application on my PC, it just seems to crash on a regular basis. Lately I've been getting a general error message from Vista saying Ultramon has stopped working and Vista is searching for a solution...

As I said initially, the task bar still stays across both monitors, it's just the application has disappeared from the system tray.

me too...

on startup I will get a "Stoped working" error message.

if I then re-start all seems to work normal.

this is Vista Ultimate x86 on a sony Vaio VGN-FZ140E
4 gigs of ram installed (I know I only see 3, just simpler to buy 2 of the same sticks)

laptop screen is wide screen, ext screen is a samsung syncmaster 930b

also the extra buttons on the top of a form sometimes start at a strange location to the left ofthe form and on a re-size will float over to the right side... funny to watch it happen!

Please send me a crash dump. To do this, don't close the error message, open Task Manager, select the Processes tab, then right-click the application which crashed (for example UltraMon.exe or UltraMonTaskbar.exe) and select Create Dump File from the menu.

If the file is not too big, please e-mail it to Otherwise let me know and I'll send you a link to upload it to our server.

Using the 3.0.2_en_x32 version of the driver on Vista Business, I get an UltraMon crash every time the screen resolution or color depth is changed.

Please post the error message you get.

You requested the details of the crash that I alluded to above. Here they are.

I am running Windows Vista Business, Service Pack 1 (but the error was happening before SP1, too.)

NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GS using NVIDIA forceware drivers, version 169.21.

The error is "UltraMon has stopped working", and the problem details are:
