@maximus10 The error codes for WMR are over here:

From the description on there, it sounds like it could be a graphics driver issue? Try updating or re-installing your graphics driver, see if that helps any!

@koujaku Tried all kind of drivers, last one and some stable one from the past.

Every time I reinstall the gpu driver the problem disappear, but after a restart or shutdown the issue come again.

I have seen that the issue come after the KB4023057 that I have installed the 20 th Feb.


Event viewer shows  that the problem is the DWM.exe:


The program dwm.exe version 10.0.19041.746 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Security and Maintenance control panel.

I reinstalled the gpu driver and the problem was fixed but after a restart or shutdown all the problems come back...

Reinstalled WMR portal with no luck.

@maximus10 Unfortunately, troubleshooting things of this nature might be a little beyond me! My recommendation at the moment would be to re-create the error code, and then report this via the Windows Feedback Hub.


If you can link that feedback item here, I might be able to push that around a little internally. I know our team definitely pays attention to WMR related feedback!
