There is also a logical FLAW in USBRESMG.SYS in that it gets totally confused if two attached devices have the very same vendor and product id (yes, this happens, even with devices that look completely different !).
That typically leads to hangs/crashes when reading string descriptors. Would need to rewrite/change USBRESMG.SYS to also take the serial number into account (I think there even is a shitty Microsoft specific descriptor for that) to distinguish devices but oh well …

This is a very deplorable situation. Is there any chance that the problem will be fixed in your USBRESMG.SYS?

Hi Digi, ideally would be the info shown in the screen object. I'm currently using SNAP and it shows monitor, chipset, and memory.
....
Hopefully there's a similar way to query Panorama.

Thanks for the advice. I implemented this for a future version 0.0.6. But Panorama is installed on all my systems. Can you tell me where I can try to search for information to get such data from Panorama?

I can say from my own experience that it is a bad idea in general to directly reread descriptors over and over again.

You already talked about this earlier and I took into account your advice by minimizing the use of USBRESMG. Description strings for each device in HwE are read only once and stored to avoid repeated calls. The USBRESM$ file handle also opens only once.
Thanks for the advice!

The fix worked.  Hwmanager is now working great with ArcaOS's 32 bit USB drivers.

Hardware Explorer 0.0.5 ?

The problem is already known. There is a ticket 0002740 on the AN bugtracker.
A fixed driver USBRESMG.SYS is attached to this ticket.

Executing the usbresm.exe locks my computer up big time  which also requiries a hard boot.

Perhaps this is due to usbresmg.sys driver problems on your system. Make sure that this driver and other USB drivers (USBEHCD.SYS ?) are from the same source (Lars Erdmann / eCS / ArcaNoae) and same version. You can use the bldlevel utility. Look in config.sys where USBRESMG.SYS is loaded from.
There is only one USBRESMG.SYS on my system.  This is the bldlevel output.

Compare it with bldlevel data for ?:\OS2\BOOT\USBEHCD.SYS

This is as much as I can get before it locks the computer.

Devices 3

Device 1   Resource Manager handle: 0x3757
Calc. length 102
Vendor device: release: 044D:C52B:1203

This tells me that the usbresmg driver hangs on an IOCTLF_ACQUIREDEVICE request.

Yes it did it in earlier versions.  I did not test further at he time. 

I just tested and everything in the branches for this controller locks the computer also.  Selecting the ECHI_0 Enhanced USB controller itself does bring up its properties.  Everything in its branches locks the computer.

What about usbresm.exe output?

This is an internal camera and not a USB camera.

The screenshot shows that the resource manager considers this a USB device. Did you have this problem on the previous version?
Please send me the output of this utility:

New version:

http://os2.snc.ru/product-HwExplorer.html

Pay attention to the second page of the USB Info tab of the notepad of any connected USB device.
The utility for removing/installing the native and extended Hardware Manager has been added to the archive.
See whatsnew.txt and readme.txt .

Use HobbesIncoming to access all files in there.

hobbes.nmsu.edu does not work from Russia and Ukraine at all.

Very strange situation with hobbes.nmsu.edu. No access from Russia and Ukraine. From other countries there is access. Letters are ignored and not even accepted by the server. Does anyone have any info on this?

...tell me what you need to debug further and I'd be happy to track this down!

Please try the new version: http://os2.snc.ru/product-HwExplorer.html
Is this problem still in your system with it?

2) HW Explorer
- when executing the same navigation path as above nothins shows up, it is empty, however once I right-click and allow it to open up in it's separate window from that point onwards it's always pre-populated

The contents of the Hardware Explorer are filled during the initialization of the WPS object and when you go to it through the menu, the folder should already be filled.
I did not meet the described problem on my systems. It would be interesting to learn about this point from other testers.
