DTS-HD Master Audio v.2.6 issue with Wi-Fi adapters

I became aware of this problem only two days ago, after installing v.2.6 on an ancient laptop running Windows 8.1.

The symptom: the job queue never starts, the mini-window only says "PENDING".

The workaround: disable the Wi-Fi adapter before using the encoder.

The solution: replace the original DtsJobQueue.exe with the fixed one. :-|

P.S.: I also discovered that the file dtshd.exe must be run in compatibility-mode (Windows 7 or earlier),
otherwise the splash screen will not be shown and the encoder's GUI will start minimized to the taskbar.

This is good to know for when (if ever) upgrading to a newer windows version. Still on 7 now.

Thank you.

You're welcome.

Many for the useful information.

Which makes me believe the infinite-loop induced by, let's say, network-related factors, was less of a bug and more of an intentional "feature"
(read: a design flaw).
The "feature" was introduced in version 2.5 and was NOT fixed in (removed from) version 2.6.

F.W.I.W....

Code:
DOUBLE_FIX_DTSJOBQUEUE.EXE
000418E5: 79 EB <== time-bomb fix
00083F2E: 6F 6D <== Wi-Fi fix
Since Wi-Fi cards are the norm for laptops,
we would like to know what was the ""reasoning"" of D.T.S. when they introduced the laptop-unfriendly feature, ooops, "bug", in the latest versions of the encoding suite.
🤔
