GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 781979
service crashes on windows
Last modified: 2021-05-25 11:21:33 UTC
When I am installing spice-webdavd version 2.2 on microsoft windows 10 guest, the webdavd service is installed and started, but after a minute or so it stops.
Windows event log shows an application crash with error code 0x80000003. Even starting it manually with spice-webdavd -p 9843 --no-service does not work, because it constantly displays warnings/errors about error reading from handle.
I can confirm this bug, with the same reproducer.
Version 2.2 x64 on Win 10.
Same problem occured on me:
Guest - Windows 10
Host - Manjaro linux Gnome Edition Stable Branch
Gnome - 3.24.2
Gnome-Boxes - 3.24.0
Spice - 0.12.8
Spice-webdavd service on guest - 2.2
I also created spice channel:
<target type='virtio' name='org.spice-space.webdav.0'/>
<address type='virtio-serial' controller='0' bus='0' port='2'/>
I confirm the bug.
In my case the service stops after a few seconds.
Tested on Windows 7 guest running on Fedora 27/Gnome Boxes 3.26.
This bug is still open, as webdavd is still version 2.2.
Don't know if it's useful, in Windows Event Viewer I found this error log:
C:\Program Files\SPICE webdavd\bin\spice-webdavd.exe
GNOME is going to shut down bugzilla.gnome.org in favor of gitlab.gnome.org.
As part of that, we are mass-closing older open tickets in bugzilla.gnome.org
which have not seen updates for a longer time (resources are unfortunately
quite limited so not every ticket can get handled).
If you can still reproduce the situation described in this ticket in a recent
and supported software version, then please follow

Thank you for your understanding and your help.
