    Desktop Notification Tool

    ryanbrothers

      I am new to the forums and I am not sure if this is where I am supposed to post.  I have a large television in my office that is connected to a windows 10 desktop that I use primarily for Solarwinds NOC view as well as desktop notification tool to play a sound when a node goes down.  Over the past few weeks I have been getting a .NET Framework error every time a node goes down as if when the program was trying to play the sound it had some issue and ended up crashing.  Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated.

          I have found a work around for this problem.

           

          I changed in the preferences the notification items from X to 100.  It appears that when more than X notification items appear that is when the error occurs.  I normally don't have 100 notifications in a day, and since it automatically reboots each day I have not had a single problem.
