I have uploaded a new msi package of DeVeDe 3.16.9 Build 2. It has disabled the percentage progress on what I believe is everything and now only has pulsing progress bars. This should alleviate all dead lock issues when running DeVeDe on Windows; at least I hope it does as I hardly ever run into the issue it is hard to tell. Over the coming weeks (months) I am hoping to re-enable the percentage progress bars. I figure it is better to have working program then one that only works partially.
