Update: Problems with the Windows 10 Creators Update

The issue related to the bluescreen on Windows 10 Creators Update is caused by a high nesting of controls (stackoverflow, microsoft support). Previously, exceeding the maximum nesting level was rarely encountered and a warning was issued in the worst case. Since the Windows 10 Creators Update, the maximum nesting level is much lower and exceeding the maximum immediately results in a bluescreen.

To avoid exceeding the maximum nesting level, HeuristicLab can intercept further nesting, by opening a new Tab instead, as soon as a defined nesting threshold is reached. This threshold can be changed by selecting View -> Change Nesting Level... in the menu bar of HeuristicLab (implemented in #2788). For users that have the Windows 10 Creators Update installed, we recommend a maximum nesting of 25. Additionally, HeuristicLab now detects whether the Creators Update is installed and issues a warning if the nesting threshold is too high.

To enable the user-configurable nesting threshold, please download the latest HeuristicLab version (HeuristicLab stable branch binaries).
