HxD crashes at startup - pointer truncation error

Post by Madir »

Hi,

I used HxD (2.3) on my computer some weeks ago. Today I tried to start it and it crashes immediatly with the following message (german Windows).

Exception EOSError in Modul HxD.exe bei 00000000000452A3.
Ein Aufruf einer Betriebssystemfunktion ist fehlgeschlagen.

I tried version 2.4, but it doesn't work either.

I use Windows 10 Enterprise Version 10.0.17763

Thanks in advance

Hi, are you using the 64-bit version of HxD?

If yes, please let me know if this development version fixes the error:

Yes, I'm using the 64-bit version. And yes, the development build works!

Thank you very much.

Good to know. This was a pointer truncation error and the fix will be officially available in the next minor release.

Might I request an English (or even international) build of this version? My situation is nearly identical to Madir's, except that I am not fluent whatsoever in German.

Hi,

I just have a development version that has some unstable parts. The next release will contain the fix in all languages.

Alright. I can get by in the meantime with an interface in Deutsch (thank you for providing that build).

Looking forward to whenever the next version drops. 👍 Tempted to shoot you a donation.
