WIFi Guard crash   20 May 2015, 03:59

I've been using v1.05 since it was released and all was well until about 8 weeks ago. Now it crashes when I touch the Title Bar (e.g. to move the window). I get a popup with a red X and text "Control-C hit. Press OK to ignore and risk data corruption. Press Cancel to kill the program." I can't find any posts about this. I've completely uninstalled, wiped, and reinstalled with no resolution. Is it just me?

I never heard of this issue before. I will be able to provide a debug version shortly, though it may not be WiFi Guard's fault. Have you installed any new software recently that could interfere?

I regularly install many new pieces of software smile

Well then it must be the payback buglaugh

Try one of these builds, either portable or installer let me know if it helps.

32 bit portable works! Problem still apparent with 64 bit portable and installer version.

Most likely it means some other app's DLL is loaded in the WiFi Guard process space and something doesn't work right, I guess in this case I recommend to stick to 32-bit portable version.

Can I force the installer to install the x32 version?

No as far as I know, but you can extract the 32-bit EXE file from the installation package using this tool and manually place it under Program Files\WiFi Guard.
