Problem in all versions post v 4.9 on W7
« on: January 15, 2021, 12:35:35 AM »
Been meaning to advise/address this issue for some time. I noticed on v the program kept creating an error and dump file in ProgramData which is somewhat unusual in and of itself and generally suggests a global issue.
Anyway, through some investigating, I was able to see the error is aimed squarely at the W7 permission profile file (attached). In the later versions, it is unable to be decompressed, causing the error. It is also only 32 bytes in size, so basically nothing. Version and previous have the file size at around 7.17 KB or 8.00 KB on disk (larger for later O.S.'s of course). So, it seems there is something to decompress and therefore works without error.
I have checked the latest version via the portable program (I haven't found any difference between the installed and portable versions) and it too has the W7 profile file at only 32 bytes.
Please let me know what you think.
