Summary0000693: Crash just by selecting "Identification"
DescriptionI don't know what just happened to my madVR configuration but ALL my profiles just disappeared except one. If I click "Add profile"... it does nothing, and when I try to duplicate this one madVR crashes...

I'm using 165, but tried 164b and the same. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, same. Tried restoring default settings... same.

If I restore default settings, uninstall it, delete all the files, extract them from a new zip (even tested madVR09217, apart from 164b and 165) and install them again (with no settings.bin file).

Then I do the install.bat, open madHcCtrl.exe and when I try "Add Profile"... it does nothing.

I also made sure that there is no HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\madshi\madVR present...

If I start from scratch my devices are not detected anymore, so I "Add device" and test profiles creation. First one is created, then trying to add more profiles using "Add profile" does nothing.

And if I use my settings.bin backup, where I had 3 profiles for "Epson PJ", now only 1 appears and it always crashes just by clicking on "Identification":

Steps To ReproduceIn my case, just clicking on "Identification".

Does this still happen with the latest madVR test build?

(Just unzip these files over the official build.)

Yes. I was using 165 since you released it. Tried 164b and 09217 and all behave the same.

It was working until 2 days ago. I've been getting crashes in "Identification" for a long time, but other than that it was working ok.

I installed some AMD motherboard drivers, Nvidia 527.56 via NVCleanstall (after using DDU) and some Realtek drivers. But I'm not sure how any of this could broke madVR that much.a

Also tried changing installation from "C:\Program Files\MadVR" to "C:\MadVR" but keeps happening all the same.

It seems that the crash happens when trying to parse the EDID block. I'm not sure why. Are you using an EDID override?

reporter   ~0002946

Yes, I am using a custom 1080p 59.938Hz resolution made in CRU to avoid dropped frames in PotPlayer. I also deleted the HDMI resolutions from the Extension Block.

What happens if you remove the custom EDID override? Does the problem go away then? If so, maybe putting it back afterwards solves the issue?

Same. Even if I "Reset All" to defaults in CRU and restart, "restore default settings.bat" in madVR and "install.bat" when I launch madHcCtrl.exe it doesn't detect any devices, and if I create a new one and create a profile, it also does nothing when clicking "Add Profile" again:

and if I "Duplicate Profile" it crashes as usual:

Attached is the new Crash Report.

More info. If I move the custom resolution from "Detailed resolutions":
to the "Detailed resolutions" INSIDE the Extension Block:
then madVR allows me to create new Profiles and even duplicate them without crashing, BUT it still crashes in the "Identification" section:
