    Hello guys, new member here with a tinywall 2.1.8 problem in need of a fix (running on Win10 latest)

    I have been getting intermittent crashes on boot, the program stops (but can be restarted successfully always). I did a search and found some similar posts but no answer. Sorry if this has been resolved before.

    I have the full logs from the event viewer and the errorlog from /ProgramData/tinywall and can post them if need be.

    From the error log:

    ------- 08/27/2017 15:53:34 -------

    The event viewer log has similar language in it about the crash error.

    Application: TinyWall.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
    Description:

    Exception code: 0xe0434352
    Fault offset: 0x0000000000033c58
    Faulting process id: 0x1074
    Faulting application start time: 0x01d315f780cded9d
    Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\TinyWall\TinyWall.exe

    Is this a known error with a fix? Thanks all.

    Do you have Hyper-V installed as a feature?
    Try uninstalling HyperV then reinstalling Tinywall

    Thanks for the suggestion. I wasn't sure but after checking Hyper-V is not on my system.

    Have not seen this crash for awhile now, seems to be around windows update timing. I do not have the creators update yet, dreading all that I will need to fix after that one hits.
