I respect your opinion, but I feel compelled to note that your
experience doesn't seem to be universal.
I start RDi first thing in the morning and keep it open and running
all day long.
I have not had RDi lock up in a very long time.
I reboot my PC on Microsoft Tuesday, otherwise, I hibernate it.
As I type this, I have Firefox running with 9 open tabs;
ACS with one 5250 session;
Navigator SQL tool with one session;
Excel with 2 spreadsheets;
2 Windows Explorer sessions;
Trend Micro antivirus;
a pile of corporate mandated services that always run.
I have a 5 year old, 32 bit Win 7 machine.
Task manager reports 3071 MB physical memory, 87% used.
115 processes, 35% CPU.
87k handles used across 1813 threads.
The PC is busy. It takes a good solid minute to open a new
spreadsheet (zero rows) right now. My hard disk light is on more than
it is off - the hard drive is chirping away in there, brrrrt, brrrrt,
brrrt, pause. Despite that, RDi 9.5.1 has been running without issue
since I upgraded it from 220.127.116.11, and that ran for months and months
and months before that. The last time I had an RDi abend, it was my
fault for mucking around in .properties files.
I don't know what makes your environment different to mine. I've had
really stable WDSC, RDP, and RDi installations for as long as I can
remember, both at work (multiple employers; different base loads), and
I'm not arguing or disagreeing with you -- I unequivocally believe you
are experiencing fragility! I just want you to know that there's at
least one person whose experience is quite different. RDi just runs
and runs and runs for me. I use debug all the time. I have split
windows open right now. I'm just getting into code assist, but that
too seems fine here.
I fervently hope that you can find the root cause of your situation.
