Crash and Hangs Error on WACK, How to know which part that error? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm testing my app using WACK. And there is error about crashes and hangs 

    Crashes and hangs

    • Error Found: The crashes and hangs test detected the following errors:
      • Application MYAPP_1.0.0.49_x86__tpwhrydx7cmnw was detected by Windows Error Reporting and experienced a crash or hang.
    • Impact if not fixed: An app that stops responding or crashes can cause data loss and is a poor user experience.
    • How to fix: Investigate, debug the executable(s) in question to identify and fix the problem, then rebuild and re-test the app. 

    But I don't know which part that cause this error, how to trace / debug this?

  • Check for two things, if you are reading large amount of data on launch try using Extended splash screen, also check if your app suspends and resumes properly, you can use the new Debug Location toolbar and Suspend/Resume buttons to simulate this behaviour and test your logic.

    Hope that helps.
