The Software Crashes

Does the Software Crash upon Launch?

If the software simply fails to launch, or crashes immediately upon launching, please follow the solutions listed in the support article below.

Contacting Support

Contact Us From Within the App

If the software can start properly, but crashes during operation, please first ensure that you are using the latest version of the Logic 2 software. If that doesn't solve the crashes, please feel free to reach out to us from within the app (if the app allows). We will follow up with your request via email.
When contacting us from within the app, we will be interested in the following information.
  • Which product(s) you were using when the software crashed
  • Indicate if this is a new problem or if you have always experienced this problem.
  • Describe what you were doing when the crash/bug occurred. For example, did it occur at the beginning / during / after a capture? Is the crash/bug repeatable? If so, what are the steps leading up to the crash?
  • Include any other relevant information not listed above that might help us uncover the bug. The app allows you to submit a screenshot of the app-view in case that helps.

Contact Us via our Contact Form

If the software crashes prevent you from sending in your support request, please contact us directly with the following information.
  • The information requested above under the "Contact Us From Within the App" section
  • Your machine ID (instructions below)
  • A copy of the software logs generated by the Logic 2 app during the crash. On Windows, they are located below. You should find files with names like "graphio-2021-11-11--09-43-49.log." The log files are named after when the software was started. We would like to get the logs from when you experienced the crashes, but if you're not sure which ones those are, feel free to zip and send us the whole set.

Common Solutions

Please try the following solutions first before contacting support.
  • Remove all active protocol analyzers
    • This solution may help when the software crashes immediately after the Start button is clicked, and might indicate a buggy protocol analyzer.
  • Remove unused channels
  • Disable 'Decoded Protocol Search' (Options -> Preferences -> Capture Tab)
  • Run the Logic software as administrator
  • Delete the settings.xml file. It may be corrupt. See instructions below.
Before you can find and delete settings.xml, make the file visible first.
The settings.xml file can be located below.
