Stuck on Initializing Application

I ran UDT once and on the second start it got stuck on " Initializing Application…" screen :frowning: Any workarounds for that?


We are not able to reproduce it at our end. Can you share the below details so we can check it on our end:
1. Are you able to reproduce it consistently?
2. UXP Developer Tool Build number
3. Operating system where it is reproducible

It looks like the pattern is:

  • Open XD
  • Open the plugin I’m going to debug
  • Start Developer tool and it stucks

Tool version is and OS is Windows:
|Edition|Windows 10 Pro|
|Installed on|‎11/‎2/‎2020|
|OS build|19042.928|
|Experience|Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0|

If you just launch the Developer Tool, does it hang then? If not, what happens when you then launch XD (does it then hang)?

The order you’re using makes me think you’re trying to debug an already-loaded plugin; the developer tool is designed to debug plugins that it loads. That means adding the plugin to the UDT workspace, then load and debug. Be sure that the plugin is not in XD’s develop folder.

Ah, I got it, so it must be UDT first, then XD. And good point regarding that plugin should not be in developer folder. I thought UDT check it when I point it to the manifest file. Thanks for the clarifications!
