Random Explorer++ crash version 1.4.0.801

Post by tallguy297 »

Has anybody noticed that Explorer++ version 1.4.0.801 crashes randomly?
It doesn't matter what file is open of even if the explorer window is doing nothing, it will close itself and the log report doesn't explain why.

Any thoughts??

OK, experienced the exact same thing, but only on one of the two machines I have it on.

1. Running the program on two separate machines, both running Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18363.836] x64
a. Dell Inspiron 13-7359 Laptop , Intel Core i5-6200U
b. Gigabyte GA-B85-HD3, Intel Core i7-4790S
(Neither is overclocked.)
2. Explorer++ versions 1.3.5.531 x64 and 1.4.0.1637 x64
3. On the Gigabyte machine ONLY - Explorer++ just closes (both versions), even when it's idle. It dies as if it had received a quit or close command.
4. Have been running it for 2 days in the "-enable_logging" mode and there's never a dump file created in the Temp folder, or anything in the WER logs.
5. Works perfectly on the Dell, I leave it running all day just to see what it'll do compared to the GA.

David, overall I love the program, it loads just as fast or faster (without logging) than Windows Explorer, uses less resources, does more, and works great.

Thanks and Cheers!

I've had success stopping the crashes by doing a repair scan on my desktop computer.
Copy these commands, save them as FixWin10.cmd, then run it from an administrator command prompt.

@FixWin10
@echo=on
attrib -r -s -h -a C:\Windows\Logs\CBS.log
del C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
attrib -r -s -h -a C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\DISM.log
del C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\DISM.log
pause
chkdsk /scan
pause
dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
pause
dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
pause
dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
pause
dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
pause
sfc /ScanNow
pause
wmic recoveros set autoreboot = false
pause
wmic recoveros set DebugInfoType = 7
pause
bcdedit /enum {badmemory}
pause
exit

It will probably take about an hour for the entire command script to run.
Reboot the computer.
If you don't want a fresh copy of the CBS and DISM logs you can delete lines 3-6.
If you don't want to have to intervene by striking a key after every step you can delete all the "pause" lines.
