Hello Jim,

Can you email me a backup of one of those tasks so I can try to reproduce/fix this? Stop the task, right-click and select "backup".

You can use the "old" history viewer instead. Select the menu
View -> Options -> History
and unselect the option "Use Quick History Viewer". Does the old viewer crash as well?

I'm also experiencing this running 4.8.8 on Windows 8.1 Pro, "old" history still works..


Also, "last message" does not display anything else than the first messsage after the task is launched, but it still runs fine.


Was able to fix the problem by copying the task and deleting the old one, seems like the history db got corrupted (?) cause one of my tasks gave me an sql error. All working fine no, for the moment :)


Sorry for all the updates! "Last message" and task history still not working, but tasks still run fine. No runtime or sql error when viewing history.
