  2. [UWP] all UWP application windows are not displayed anymore after a lot of start/kill of any UWP application

    Hello,

    This issue seems linked to the Windows Anniversary Update (build 10.0.14393,
    also reproduced on build 14905.rs_prerelease.160811-1739) and the new UWP lifecycle introduced with it, since this issue was not there before.

    The test scenario is simple:

    1. start any UWP application (in my example the windows calc.exe, the default Windows 10 calculator application)

    2. wait 0.5 second

    3. kill the same UWP application

    4. repeat the 1-2-3 steps 5000 times

    This scenario is basically reproducing an automated test environment.

    The expected result is that the tested application will always be displayed correctly.

    The actual result is that the tested application is not displayed anymore after a various number of loops (between 200 and 800). It looks like it is running in the background since the process can be seen in the task manager.

    When the UWP application window can't be displayed, the scope of the issue is much more important: no UWP content can be displayed anymore (Edge browser or Windows settings, etc).

    The way to recover from this is to log out from the user session and log in again.

    Here is a python script to reproduce the issue:

    Is it a known issue ? Any way to work around this (this is blocking our UWP automated testing environment)?

    BR

    application auto start?

    The application normally need to has a setting menu to enable or disable its auto-starting during boot. you could download some task management utility to kill it if you would not like it running.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
