StableBit Scanner come with a large set of diagnostic tools built in, in order to make troubleshooting and resolving problems easier. If you encounter a problem using Scanner, depending on the nature of the problem you may want to employ a particular troubleshooting method.

We encourage everyone to participate in the BETA and report issues that they encounter by following the instructions outlined below.

Here are the various ways to troubleshoot StableBit Scanner and report problems:

Error Reports / Event logs

When to use

You're sure that StableBit Scanner is not running, now you want to submit an error report.

Error reports are written when Scanner encounters exceptional conditions that prevent it from functioning properly. If such a condition occurs then Scanner writes out an error report file and issues a windows event log entry.

System Crash

Dashboard Freeze

When to use

The Dashboard freezes while you're interacting with StableBit Scanner.

You can log into your server with Remote Desktop and take a memory dump of the Dashboard process and then upload it for analysis.


System Freeze

When to use

StableBit Scanner is installed and you experience a system lockup and you suspect Scanner to be the cause, or when you cannot connect to the Scanner service at all, even after resetting the settings for Scanner.

Windows can be configured to collect a full kernel memory dump in case of a system freeze. These dumps should be sent to StableBit support for analysis. We look at every single dump sent.
