Psychopy Experiment Freezing Once it is Running

Hey All,

I have been having an issue with an experiment I developed for quite some time now. I developed an experiment using the builder, and the experiment works fine. However, when I want to terminate the experiment the entire program freezes and I have to use task manager to end psychopy. It used to be that this would only happen if I would terminate early, but now it occurs even if I let my experiment run through to the end. I get no error messages, aside from a warning about the avbin (which I’m not using videos or sound, just simple text). All my data looks fine and the files save, but I am concerned about doing this on a regular basis. I am not sure if this is bad for my computer!

I would be happy to share my experiment if anyone would be able to provide insight as to why this is happening.

Thank you all so much, and I am loving this new discourse website!


What OS? What version of PsychoPy?
If the experiment runs to its natural end (you said you’re “terminating” the experiment) does it also freeze?
