    PWgen won't run. Error code: 0xc0000005. Details inside.


    Hello

    I'm having some troubles with a program called PWgen. I am unable to run both installed and portable versions.

    OS: Windows 10 Pro 64, Fully updated and patched.

    Emsisoft Anti Malware + WFC Control (binisoft.org) + HMP.Alert are installed on my machine.

    This is what's in the error log

    Faulting application name: PWGen.exe, version: 2.9.0.1, time stamp: 0x00000000 Faulting module name: PWGen.exe, version: 2.9.0.1, time stamp: 0x00000000 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x00001813 Faulting process ID: 0xc94 Faulting application start time: 0x01d3039aadc96d31 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\PWGen\PWGen.exe Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\PWGen\PWGen.exe Report ID: 0e7796bd-7860-4264-b354-52ea17db8bc6 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:

    I've tried sfc/scannow and it found no corruption.. Not sure what is the problem.

    Any help?

    Hi, the portable version 2.9.0 runs on my fully updated Win 10 (see my specs 'My Computer' for which build I'm using).

    Which is your build?
    (Windows key + R, winver)

    Suggest you try a clean boot and retry; if you are running the Creator's build or an Insider build I suppose there could be some incompatibility.

    windows - What exactly is the scope of Access Violation ? - Stack Overflow
    (Note - there are many duff web-sites which give spurious info if you search for 0xc0000005)

    Note that the portable version writes a dat file to where the exe resides.
