Where did Callstacks go from the Hopper logs?


If you upgraded from an older version of Hopper to a more recent one, you probably noticed that the callstacks are gone from the Hopper logs.


We made them optional for two reasons:


1. Printing out callstacks slowed down the run significantly


2. They did not provide a lot of value, because the callstacks were printed out at 5 minute intervals and not at the points of interest


If you feel that you can benefit from these callstacks you can turn them back on by passing /d to Hopper.exe. To pass a switch to hopper you can use the debugger’s target window. If you don’t have a debugger attached you can create a link file that passes the switch to Hopper.exe. MSDN has instructions on how to create link files here

    But we still found call stack in SOME hopper run. We were using hopper from Sep 07 LTK.

    Is there situation will automatically turn on that ?

    @modern911, ah yes it does it at the begining and the end of a run only but it doesn’t do it every 5 minutes anymore.
