hi - the ui sometimes freezes when i go to add a custom study. i'm pretty sure its related to one my dlls but am not sure. thought the scenario below which i have during testing could be the cause.

i have 2 dlls in the data directory that have the exact same exported study functions - each dll has a different physical name and a different SCDLLName name. so when i go to add custom study, i see both of them. could this in any way you can think of cause the ui to freeze at times?

No, this cannot be the cause. There must be something else causing this. But we do think it is caused by a DLL.

Yes it does.

following up on this, just to make sure I understand - this implies that if I define a global variable in my study code, that global variable can be accessed from the study in a thread safe manner without requiring any special locking around section that access this variable - right?

Yes, this is correct.
