What causes this alert/warning?

Applixure Agent is monitoring the time in which the GUI -based application responds to Windows events (keyboard events, mouse events, paint messages etc.). If the software does not response for over 10 seconds - the same threshold Windows's shell uses for detection - to any of the messages then the application is detected as being non-responsive. 

Threshold values

  • More than one non-responsiveness event per week.

How should I react?

Non-responsive applications typically indicate GUI applications that run I/IO intensive operations on a UI-thread which will block or disrupt the message processing of messages from the Windows. This is problem with the internal architecture of the application that only the vendor of that application can correct in the code.
