High CPU Utilization When Running Wpf(Windows Presentation Foundation) Application.

by Admin 23. September 2013 13:57
Symptoms: While running WPF application on .net framework 3.0 or 3.5 you sometimes receive a File exception format exception error or Argument out of range exception. Sometimes a file Wpf_fontcache.exe with almost 100% CPU utilization while looking at task manager.  Cause: Outdated Video driver which overwrites font cache stored in memory.  Solution:   Close All WPF based Application Stop Windows Presentation Foundation Font Cache Service from Control Panel Services.msc. Delete Fontcache dat file (Note: It is located in %windir%\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local folder in Windows Vista and Win 7 by default , %systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Application Data folder in Windows XP and in earlier versions of Windows. ) This is only for the temporary solution. For permanent solution download and update the latest video driver.
