SETISpy crash on WinXP???
just fresh install WinXP Pro on my new XP machine. whenever i started SETISpy, it crashed??? however, SETIDriver is still running, and running fine tho. i've heard SETISpy isn't completely compable w/ WinXP, is it ture? if so, what other alternative GUI monitor i could use to track my progress?? i love SETISpy, and i've used it on all of my machine. so, if possible, i would really like to keep using it.

I had the same problem on other Os's as well, but more since XP. I do the same thing, just close 'em both, and restart until it works. Sometimes it does take a few tries tho

From the SETISpy homepage:
Thanks to everyone who responded to my request for information on how to improve SETI Spy's stability under Windows XP. Unfortunately, I have to come to the conclusion that SETI Spy is not completely compatible with Windows XP. Setting the compatibility option to Windows 2000 and disabling visual themes may help, but you will probably still experience crashes, especially if you have SETI Spy start up automatically. Due to other commitments and interests I will unfortunately not be able to fix this problem. Please consider SETI Spy 3.0.7 the last release. The SETI Spy source code is available as described in FAQ 4.1. My apologies to the very loyal SETI Spy user base out there. I had a lot of fun developing and supporting SETI Spy, but after 27 months it is time to move on to other things.
If some one knows Delphi, they could try to correct the compatibility issues.Have you checked the Forum policies?!!!!! Do it now!!!!!

Mine would do this too. Close and restart would always work. It doesn't happen anymore though and I don't know why or what fixed it, but I am happy about it.

Used to happen in Win2k, it would take about 5-10 re-starts to get it working. It seemed to clear up after installing DirectX 8.1, strange but trueAsus P5W64WS PRO E6600@3612Mhz Stock Voltage

yeah, sometimes, it just run ok w/ crashing. and i already deleted it from the startup folder too.
well, i guess we all have to settle w/ it for now until someone could modify the lastest version to make it more compatible w/ XP. (anyone???....)
