Workspace problems on Windows Update restarts

System: Windows 11, Accordance 14.0.9

 

This is not strictly-speaking a bug, but more of a usability issue.

 

These days, Windows gets updated quite a bit. The updates are automatic, and sometimes reboot the machine.

If Accordance is left open when such a reboot happens, the Accordance workspace sometimes becomes unusable.

Although Accordance can reopen a fresh workspace, the state of the last workspace needs to be re-created: Bibles and tools need to be reopened, searches redone, rabbit trails revisited, etc.

 

Windows apparently sends a notification to apps when it is about to reboot. See <https://stackoverflow.com/questions/981306/how-to-detect-whether-windows-is-shutting-down-or-restarting>. Would it be possible to catch this notification and do an orderly save-and-quit so that the workspace can be properly preserved across reboots?

 

Alternatively, saving and restoring the workspace state via the upgraded sync could also work. (Though if the workspace on a PC is corrupted by the reboot process, please don't propagate it to other devices via sync).

Remind me to look into this one in early July.

Back to civilization. I can look further into this. Do I just need to review your link?
