yeah with latest master and the broken addon from the mentioned addon hash, it now properly fails , they have been messing with these tests a lot, guess it's fixed....

That is interesting, tests are passing nice for me on Linux. The stacktraces are mainly harmless, but would be nice to hide them so we can see actual problems.

little context, I was testing with artok (mac) and someone on linux, they had the same problem (presets being tested) but the test failed for them , passed on windows.

Sergey Sharybin (sergey) claimed T52239: [ctests] Failing tests get marked as passed..

Wouldn't really call it a bug: error happens in preset which is supposed to be ignored. The issue here is that script first imports everything possible and only then checks that script was a preset and to be ignored. Perhaps we should suppress import error tracebacks for ignored files unless we pass something like VERBOSE=1.

Robert Guetzkow (rjg) updated subscribers of T52267: Same bug different version.

According to @Antonio Vazquez (antoniov) the files did get saved and only the explorer didn't display them. So perhaps you're experiencing a different error?
Could it be that your HDD/SSD/USB device you store on have faulty sectors?

Sunday morning 11:17: I finished re-installing win10 from a backup and downloaded the updates and tried to reproduce the problem again but I was not able to recreate the same error. The screenshots that I gave you in this post was from July 16 2017 at exactly 10:23am (about 3 weeks ago) at that moment I did not have the time to deal with it, so I just came back to windows 7 (I always have a backup of the two OS and Linux).

sorry I forgot to had this: for the microsoft link about "explorer" I never saw it, but i did experiment those problems, but I had those problem with windows 7 and 10 at the same time, including copy/paste on USB thumb drive and external drive. My motherboard was the asus H87-Plus at the time and it had the reputation of having problems with USB, I send it to asus, gave me a new one, the problems where still there, changed my MB to an H97M-E that was recommended to me by my local computer repair store and I stopped having problems within windows 7 and 10 for the USB but the Blender problem persisted on win10. I spend so much time and money that I just gave up and stayed with windows 7 after my original posting (https://developer.blender.org/T50710)

Jean-Francois Tasse (jft_quebec) added a comment to T52267: Same bug different version.

I did it on win10 fresh install, only microsoft drivers, and during that period, since I first thought it was my hardware, I changed my motherboard, my SSD, sent my graphic card to gigabyte for a checkup, tested and stress tested my cpu and memory with legitimate software from intel etc... All of my hardware was double checked and I use only legitimate software, I do not run dropbox, onedrive, torrent or any others, and there is no skype or Steam games running in the background, my PC is for primarily for graphics :)

Joshua Leung (aligorith) added a project to T52267: Same bug different version: Platform: Windows.

This sounds like it's probably a general Windows bug - perhaps a strange combination of disk driver, internal caching/background threads, and/or potential interference from some third-party shell addon (e.g. dropbox, cloud sync, TortoiseSVN/Git, AV menu entries, etc.) is leading to a delay in things getting updated?

Well… then we'll need to add support for NTFS junctions maybe at some point. That is a TODO though (maybe some #platform:_windows dev likes to take a go at it? added a note to our TODO list), not a bug. Thanks for the report anyway.

Chris (crazychris) added a comment to T52191: CUDA support disappears when plugging in external GPU.

After playing around with this setup now for a day I just found this link
https://egpu.io/forums/implementation-guides/dell-precision-7510-akitio-node-galax-gtx-1080-hof-its-working/
where the user disabled the internal nvidia GPU and then the external GPU worked in CUDA-Z (!)
... and now it works in blender too!
(not a perfect solution but at least I didnt buy the Akitio +1080Ti for nothing - and maybe nvidia can fix this in the future)
PS: THX brecht for your help!

Chris (crazychris) added a comment to T52191: CUDA support disappears when plugging in external GPU.

Yes, drivers are from nvidia. Control panel shows version 384.94
BUT Cuda-Z says "no compatible CUDA devices found" when the external gpu is plugged in :-(
... but nvidia gpu monitor shows eg Chrome running on the GPU
any ideas?

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to T52080: File Permissions Bug in Windows - Blender ignores Windows folder permissions and fails to write in valid folders with proper permissions..

I think there are two distinct issue here. In T52036 it seems that Blender tries to use C:\ as the temporary directory. This report seems to be about NTFS junctions, which are a special type of symbol link used by Windows to move e.g. My Documents to another location.

@Bastien Montagne (mont29) , I think this bug(?) is quite old - back in 2012. I managed to find someone post a solution-ish for Windows 7.

James Fulop (Yam) added a comment to T51948: Pen pressure cannot be detected on Wacom Cintiq Pro 16.

I was testing with some different tablets and had a similar problem with a Wacom Intuos 4 Model PTK-640. After digging into it, I found the cursors being reported as values that aren't handled in GHOST. The following diff fixed it for me.


Looking into it more I think that there is a programmatic approach to knowing which cursors are active according to Wintab, using WtInfo and WTI_CURSORS, which might bullet-proof this more. I'll look into this more next time I have access to a bunch of tablets.

On the other end, since '@' file is written first, would be the first one to hit permission issue, so…

Bastien Montagne (mont29) added a comment to T52080: File Permissions Bug in Windows - Blender ignores Windows folder permissions and fails to write in valid folders with proper permissions..

Hmmm… the '@' file is a temp .blend file Blender uses to dump its binary data in, before renaming it to final file name - it avoids potentially running an existing .blend file whe you write over it.

Bastien Montagne (mont29) triaged T52106: Render window don't close from Windows taskbar thumbnail as "Low" priority.

Not sure we can do much here? It’s kind of Blender not having focus issue most likely, so it cannot handle own events, or something like that I’d guess… We need a windows dev to have a look at this, but would really no consider this as high priority issue.

First of all, when you do assumptions, you should speak more gently. Nobody should do what you say or want.
Second, Blender does respect permissions, I couldn't reproduce your bug. If I try to write to a folder I'm allowed to write in, it works, whatever folder/partition it is, if I'm not allowed it won't.
So you have to better describe your problem and speak normally.

I just found that problem for a project that I'm working one. There is any solution available or hack that we can do to solve the it? I see that the first report was done around 4 years ago, and blender 2.78 still don't recognise linked folders in windows 10.
