Yeah, I hear ya, me too..But here's how I can make PXOC crash all day, every day, and on demand with versions 6.2.6, 6.2.7 and also with the Beta versions in between in both Win7 and Win10..Older versions work fine.
1. Create a profile/profiles and save it/them
2. Assign a 2D and/or 3D profile in the Profile tab
3. Close Precision and then open again so the profiles/settings stick
4. Run the GPU-Z Render Test or a 3D app or even open Edge or Internet Explorer or Windows Photos
Doesn't matter if PXOC starts with Windows or I start it from the desktop shortcut..Doesn't matter if PXOC is minimized to the System Tray or not..Doesn't matter if PXOC is set to Start Minimized or not..Sometimes the crash takes like 15 seconds or so and sometimes it happens immediately.
The problem is somehow related to the 2D/3D profiles and/or the Settings being activated or not..The problem goes away when no profiles are assigned, or when opening/closing the Settings (gear button) if 2D/3D profiles are assigned.
In Win7 I get the error popup shown in the attachment below and no solution from Win7 is offered.
I hope these findings can prove useful to the development team.
Thanks for the directions, I could reproduce this using GPU-Z atleast, crashed nearly immediately on PrecisionX_x64.exe.
I only wiped my settings and then created 3 profiles with the same info.
Assigned different profiles to 2d and 3d profile, but also happens using same profile.
I currently have renamed the OSD server executables so they can't be doing anything.
This is what the Windows logs had to say about it:
Faulting application name: PrecisionX_x64.exe, version: 22.214.171.124, time stamp: 0x5af10c52
Faulting module name: PrecisionX_x64.exe, version: 126.96.36.199, time stamp: 0x5af10c52

My guts are telling me that this has to do with how Precision XOC is loading its settings currently.
As we've seen before the first time you open the settings menu, there's a delay before it opens.
If settings is left unopened, things like Thermal LEDs currently do not update.
Now, we have 2d and 3d profiles which the program has defined profiles for, but without opening settings first, it is unable to change from profile state in the main Precision XOC window.
When the program detects the other 3d profile kicks in due to load from opening certain applications, it hangs.
You can see the same delay occur in Precision XOC like settings if you start it and directly click on one of the profile buttons.
Something is definitely messed up with how settings are currently loaded at program start-up and its breaking all sorts of things.
Maybe its done to lessen the initial start-up time of the application, but it seems its not the right way as of now.
Either way good find. PS:
GPU-Z could use a bugfix too, pausing the rendertest keeps using processor power for no reason.
Was support for Logitech G19 keyboard removed with this version? The OSD is lacking any sort of interface with my keyboard.
I don't think it was done intentionally, but since EVGA has their own keyboard now they might have made specific changes which breaks the old keyboards support.
