a2start beta 10204 crashed trying to start a custom scan


Recommended Posts

Win 8.1, 64 bit.    Unfortunately debug logging was not on, after yesterday's experiments.

I used the GUI to try to start a custom scan, loaded predefined scan settings, and clicked NEXT.  Immediately got a "Emsisoft Security Centre has stopped working" pane, [with the usual misleading info that Windows is going to phone a friend and see if they can fix it (which has never ever worked for anything as far as I know)].

I was not offered a chance to send a dump to Emsisoft.   Windows did save a small crash dump - I'll PM its location to @Frank H

I always start my custom scans (usually done once per week) by importing settings, and what's more it's normal for me to import first a set of settings I don't plan to use, then import the set I do wish to use.  I know that's odd, but I do it because it means I always see something change in the GUI regardless of whatever was displayed before the import. 

I have a scan running now, which I started in exactly the same way as this morning's attempted one... except this time I do have debug logging on...

This happened again this morning, albeit with a slightly newer version of a2start.  I've PMed Arthur with the location of the dump, debug logs, eventlog records etc.
