Dopamine

Recommended Posts

For a little while now I've been having problems opening Dopamine, with the process just hanging and/or just a black screen. It had made me stop using it cos I couldn't figure out why, but I have just discovered it is because it's conflicting with MSI Afterburner. Once I close that Dopamine opens.

 

Has something changed that might have caused this? I was running the latest Release build.

Hi. Sad to hear that another application caused Dopamine to misbehave. It wasn't my doing though. A bit of searching on the web shows that this is not an isolated case. Other WPF applications also fail to work because of MSI Afterburner/Rivatuner. I have no idea what these tools are for though (overclocking?). It seems it's those developers that would need to whitelist Dopamine or something at least.

 Thanks for the reply mate. It's not a big deal now I know what's causing it. The only reason I thought to check Afterburner was because I had the same issue when trying to use Handbrake (encoding software) and found the solution online.

 

 I'll have to see if there is a beta version that might fix it !

Cheers.
