It is freezing pausing because the Daktronics scoreboard is reset by the Moscore code in error when leaving the Tools/Options panel

possibly by the Custom Feature code , or Time clock settings

The message report says it could not write to schedule, Venus 1500 ver 4 has a different path for the schedule. I have a working copy of Venus 1500 v4 if you need it to test (I know that because I am not connected to a sign in this example,3301,3303 errors the write for dimmness and write to schedule errors will happen because of no physical connections.
If you have a plan on how to best troubleshoot this issue can you write it down and I will go to the track and use it to test the issue.

When you did the tests for exiting tools options on a Daktronics matrix display, Did you have a USB to rs232 cable in the appropriate comm port? I find this is necessary to duplicate the issue

It looks like the problem you are describing is in fact a new bug, unrelated to this one. Unfortunately i have no rs232 adapter that will work in windows 8 with which to test. Perhaps you can hit the 'pause' button in the debugger when this happens and then report the file and line number where the breakpoint hits (long shot).

Message:
Re Fix #221 Program pauses because scoreboard gets disconnected when closing options form every time.
Scoreboard type action was still being executed which also causes reconnect, but it only shows up when there is a commport device attached.
Also log Directory.XML to debug possible new daktronics schedule file layout.
