Putty Crashing on Windows 7 64bit
When using Putty to SSH into a Linux server, while running XMING to display XWindows, when switching between Windows Windows and the PUTTY terminal window, sometimes PUTTY is frozen. Sometimes the application I switch from is frozen too.


We are running:
OS: Win7Prox64bit
SSH: PUTTY 0.60
XServer: XMing 6.9.0.31

Any ideas?

Maybe Win7 is too new for it. Try the putty.exe / properties / compatibility settings.

Please elaborate upon what you mean by "Try the putty.exe / properties / compatibility settings."
Thanks.

Right click on putty, choose Properties, then Compatibility tab. Tell it to run under XP emulation.

Thank you. I will try that. Meanwhile I found this site: http://www.softpedia.com/reviews/win...w-107245.shtml referenced the same problem.
Our employees get this message to: "SSH, Telnet and Rlogin client has stopped working"

I will what you have suggested and will report back. Thank you.

Issue still continues...
The issue still occurs even if set for XP mode.

Running Putty in Compatibility Mode is not the same as XP mode. Which did you try?

I run putty just fine in Windows 7 64 bit but I don't run xming nor do I know what it is.

Compatibility mode ... options:
From the Compatibility Tab on the properties Window of any given executable, you may check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for" check box to enable compatibility mode. The drop down menu below it allows you to select:
Windows 95
Windows 98 / ME
Windows NT 4.0 SP5
Windows 2000
Windows XP SP2
Windows XP SP3
Windows Server 2003 SP1
Windows Server 2008 SP1
Windows Vista
Windows Vista SP1
Windows Vista SP2

What do you mean by your post Squashman?

That is not XP mode. That is the compatability setting.

Ah yes. I see. I apologize for the typo. As directed by lunarlander, I tried the Compatibility Mode with the XP3 option.

Are you suggesting that I try downloading and running XP Mode?

resolution was to stop using putty and start using Xshell by Netsarang. Netsarang also offers an entire Xmanager package that includes both SSH and X. Seems like both are really nice software packages and work very well so far in testing.
