Description

Windows XP SP2+Hotfixes .NET 3.5SP1 Eraser 6.04.875

Eraser randomly crashes when wiping files in explorer via the context menu.

Error message is:

AppName?: eraser.exe AppVer?: 6.0.4.875 ModName?: kernel32.dll
ModVer?: 5.1.2600.3119 Offset: 00012a5b

An annoying fallout from this is Eraser loses _all_ scheduled tasks.

  • Milestone set to Eraser 6.0

It's really unpredictable, as if it's got a mind of its own. My own debugs trace it to the pipes used for I/O, but it's still inconclusive. I'll look into it.

I've rewritten the Eraser inter-process communications in source:/branches/eraser6/Manager/RemoteExecutor.cs@928 to source:/branches/eraser6/Manager/RemoteExecutor.cs@984

Do reopen the ticket if it still doesn't work properly.
