Eraser 6.0.8 problems in Windows XP


New Member
When I open Eraser 6.0.8 (stable) in Windows XP, I keep getting an error message that reads "The First/last16KB erasure method requires another erasure method to erase the file. This must be set in the Plugin Settings dialog." Then Eraser shuts down. Has anyone else had this problem? What can be done to fix it? Thanks for your help.
This is not one I've seen before. Does this happen as soon as you open the Eraser window? If it does, does context menu erasing work? Also, what default erasing methods are you using? And is the Eraser settings window populated with erasing options?

If the Erasing options are blank, you need viewtopic.php?f=35&t=5473. Otherwise, delete the HKCU\Software\Eraser registry key to reset all settings.
