Winpatrol Explorer crashes on Recent
« on: May 01, 2015, 02:02:44 PM »
Updated to WinPatrol 33.5.2015.7 on my Win 7 x64 system.
But now when I open Winpatrol Explorer ( or right click the taskbar icon ) and choose Recent, Winpatrol Explorer crashes. I went back to an image from a week ago before the update, and everything is fine. But after updating WinPatrol, the problem is back again.
Uninstall/reinstall doesn't fix it either, and the uninstall tool crashes too !

I am not going to update on my Vista x32 system, and on my Win 7 x64 I am going back to my image again.
Not very happy with the latest releases !

Greetz, Red.

Just to make clear : WinPatrol Explorer only crashes with Recent, not with the other tabs/functions.

Hi, Red.

I was not able to duplicate the problem on Windows 7 Ultimate x64.  I tried both by launching WinPatrolEx.exe by selecting a different tab first (e.g., Options and Reports) and then selecting Recent, closing WinPatrolEx.exe and right-clicking Recent.  Neither crashed.  Although, the first attempt at launching WinPatrolEx.exe resulted in "Not Responding" and had to be closed.

Yes, that is what I mean. But with me it happens all the time, with ( only ) Recent !

Home Premium 32 bit - no problem clicking on recent tab and getting the contents displayed, done from all programs and right clicking the icon

Home Premium 64 bit -  same as above; no problem opening recent in2 different ways.
Home Premium 64 bit (2nd computer) - same

Pro 32 bit - no problem trying both methods.

Since none of my computers can reproduce what you are experiencing, you need to look at what else might be running that is affecting WinPatrol recent tab.

I can replicate this behavour, W7x64 HP, running as Admin, UAC off, Avast Free, MBAM Prem, MBAE free, WinPrivacy unregistered, WinPatrol PLUS.

Using Process Explorer, I don't see any 3rd party .dll loading with either of the WinPatrol .exes.

This is something new for me as well, I've probably not checked all WP tabs for maybe 2 weeks.

Red, how does your setup stack up against mine? Similarities/differences?

It seems that the forum has been set back. Darabase problems ?

As I recall the missing posts...

Although most of us couldn't duplicate the exact symptoms experienced by Rednose.....
At least three of us could make Winpatrol Explorer "crash" by right-clicking, or left clicking, one of the processes on the "Recent" tab.
It's didn't happen every time, but it happened often enough to be considered a problem.
As I recall users of both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 were included.

In my case, I also noticed that the "Recent" tab took much longer to open than other tabs. I don't recall if anyone else mentioned that.

And also the UAC "unknown publisher" prompt that pops up when I open the program.

RE: http://www.landzdown.com/winpatrol-help-information/release-33-5-2015-12-available-fixes-crashes-in-recent-tab-and-more/?topicseen
Downloaded and installed version 33.5.2015.12

The "Recent" tab didn't seem to take nearly as long to load.
I was able to left-click various processes and access the "Plus info" without a problem.
Right-clicking didn't trigger a crash.

Since it didn't happen "every time" in the previous version, at this point I'll just say "so far so good".
