I am trying to setup eraser and a task to erase a database on a server I am taking out of service. To learn how I setup the program on a server with the same equipment and OS.

I have deleted most everything except the OS - Windows Server.
I made a task to erase the free space.

When I try to start the task it crashed with the popup and following error.

(I ran Eraser as Administrator)

Here is the error. Can you help?

This might be an issue with .NET runtimes - try running windows update.

Did the eraser process start and crash or just not start up at all?

Eraser launches and runs.
I add a task to erase unused space.
When I try to run the task I get a popup Windows Box Fault:

I am sorry for the lengthy lack of response. Unfortunately customers set my priorities and my backup server took backseat.

Can I restart this thread?

If so, I just downloaded the latest version; 6.2.0.2970.
Installed, without a problem. Its an HP DL380 with two SCSI raids and 36GB DRAM.
The OS is:
Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 Enterprise
Version 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2 Build 6002
FixPacks are up to date.

I created a new task to erase unused area on the D: drive, checked erase cluster tips, ran immediately.
The drive is NTFS, capacity 2.72TB, free 1.51TB. It is an HP Raid5.

The popup box:
Eraser has stopped working

I have screen grabs of each step.

Any help will be appreciated.
