Task Manager crashing - how to solve 08 January 2013, 22:39
I'm using the 64-bit version of SoftPerfect RamDisk in Windows 8.
When a disk is mounted, Task Manager often crashes when I open it. Sometimes when it doesn't, Disk 1 is noted as: "Disk 1 (C:, F:, F:, F:)". Seems like Task Manager is not processing the RamDisk properly (F: drive is my RamDisk).
Any way to fix this?

The problem stopped after I dismounted then remounted the image and ramdisk. Now it works fine with taskmanager. I not sure but maybe ramdisk clobbered memory space of Taskmgr.exe when first created. In any case, all works fine now even before installing the new update. Though of course you may prefer to update - I will do it a bit later.
