It's the most wonderful time of the year - Santalytics 2020 is here! This year, Santa's workshop needs the help of the Alteryx Community to help get back on track, so head over to the Group Hub for all the info to get started!
I am using Windows 10 insider preview (pre release 181205-1436). This has happened to me at-least 5 times. Whenever I use the browse tool, and zoom in some of the plots, my PC crashes with a blue screen of death. I have analysed the memory dump file, and can say with certainty that as per the memory dump file details, Alteryx is causing Windows to crash.
Has someone else faced the same issue? Any fix around this. I am thinking of appearing for the Alteryx core exam and am afraid that my PC might crash during the exam.
If possible, could you also upload a copy of the issue you are encountering? In case the above article is not able to assist you, I would like to see what kind of data size you are working with as Alteryx is memory intensive on your machine.
I cannot capture a screen-shot of the issue as my PC instantly crashes upon reproduction of the issue. I cannot use the task manager to stop Alteryx as my PC crashes and reboots.
I thought upgrading the graphics drivers would solve the issue for me but it didn't. The problem still persists.
One possible reason could be that I am using an Insider Preview version of Windows. However, this issue only occurs with Alteryx and no other program. I may try upgrading to the next Insider Preview version to see if it solves the problem.
As per your other query, the data size I am using is really tiny. Also, the issue is not related to the data size, as it happens with almost any workflow or data where the browse tool is used. It happens while zooming out and then re-zooming in on any of the plots. A couple of times it has also happened while resizing the configuration window.
I am using Alteryx 2019.1.4.57073. I am attaching a zip file which contains the System Dump files after the PC crash and a sample workflow with which the problem occurs.
I can't find system and application tables. I did find some log files in "Z:\Users\mausam\AppData\Local\Alteryx\bin\log". But all of the log files are of an older date. So, no log files were generated for the recent PC crash.
