Chitubox causes Substance Painter to crash when opening a file. Mouse freezes when changing UI regions in chitubox.

There appears to be a strange conflict with substance painter and chitubox.

Does chitubox do something to win10 explorer / shell? Some known issues with substance painter is custom windows shells.

Everything is updated to the latest versions including chitubox, nvidia drivers, win10 etc.

I can only use substance painter if I uninstall chitubox.

Chitubox also freezes for a second when moving the cursor between the different UI regions inside chitubox.

    Same, if I install Chitubox on the same system that Substance Painter, this program crash when I try to create a new project and open the windows explorer to select a file. I think that this is a problem with the miniatures of the 3D files that Chitu show us or any incompatibility with the thumbnail viewer for the explorer. Sorry, i don't know where is the origin of the problem. Thanks for all!

    Hi guys, install Chitubox 32 bits version (I have win10). No more problems between Substance Painter and Chitubox for me. Regards!

    Please disable the thumbnail function in chitubox, we are looking for the reason, but my computer can indeed use two software at the same time (thumbnail can also be used normally).
