    A new version is out which possibly fixes the windows 7 issue. I say possibly, because I have no way of testing it right now ;) So please let me know if it worked.

    Sadly no, as this is a standalone app, there is no way how to transform into a simhub dashboard

    v3.0.0 was just pushed to the autoupdater
    - Telemetry Viewer: This version contains the first release of the telemetry viewer application, which can be used to analyse the data that get captured while Second Monitor is running. The capturing of data needs to be enabled in the options first.

    More information at the wiki - https://github.com/Winzarten/SecondMonitor/wiki

    Could you please upload the log files? (there is a button in the settings that will open the log directory)
    Thank you

    I'm still looking at the crashes, but from the logs it looks like the app wasn't able to create a map, because there wasn't a clean lap. Could this be the case? If not, then the r3e invalid lap reporting in telemetry is broken. :-/

    But I've noticed that you have documents synchronized via onderive, which is a scenario I really havne't thought about. As the telemetry files can get quite big. This is something I would need to solve. If you want to change the directory Second Monitor uses, then open the Settings.json in the same directory, as the log files.
    And edit the value for "ExportDirectory":, by default there should be "%MyDocuments%\\SecondMonitor2", replace it for something else, just be sure to use double slash (\\) instead of the one.

    Also if you can get the next crash, please attach another log, maybe I'll see additonal information.

    Damn, this could be quite hard to investigate, as logs are not of much use there. I will hop into MP the next few days and hopefuly I will experience the same behavior.

    Edit: And if somebody else has this problem, then please, let me known.

    I've reverted most of the interal changes done to the app with the telemetry viewer updated and made an experimental installation with those changes here :

    Could you please try it and see if it solves anything?

    Thankefully, this time a proper error is present in the log, and I think I finally know what is going on. I think you can temporarily work around the problem by going into the settings and turning telemetry logging ON.

    Somehow I forgot that the same data are used for map building, so if the telemetry logging is not turned ON, the application will crash when trying to create a new map. What is worse, my changes in the new version caused the error to get lost, and the application enters a limbo state :(. It should be easy to fix, but it might take a day or two, as my IRL is quite packed now.

    Thanks a lot for the patience and help with getting to the root of this problem. :)

    With the help of the last log I was finaly able to reproduce the crashing/freezing.
    A new version has been released in which it should be fixed. The experimental build should pick-up the new version as well.

    So, now we can get the second step :)
    Can you install an option that the user can specify the folder for the telemetry data?
