I uninstalled my V1 AxCrypt and installed V2 using AxCrypt-2.1.1474.0-x64.msi. When I try to use it, either by running the app or by using a context menu (right-click) I get the message “AxCrypt File Encryption has stopped working”. I am running 64-bit Windows 10. I tried it with AxCrypt-2.1.1474.0.exe – same result. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled, rebooting after each operation. I need some guidance here. Thanks.September 26, 2016 at 08:13 #4184
This is unusual. If you’ve tried the standalone version as well, that rules out problems with the Windows integration, so let’s stick to that right now.
If you start the “Event Viewer” you should find an entry there that matches the crash, and should give more information as to the cause. If you need assistance in how to do that, let me know.September 26, 2016 at 16:14 #4192
You were on the money! Excerpts from event log:
Faulting application name: AxCrypt.exe, version: 2.1.1474.0, time stamp: 0x57e7d2eb
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\LavasoftTcpService64.dll
I had LavaSoft’s Web Companion installed but it always crashed on boot-up (I unwisely ignored this). I just uninstalled it and now AxCrypt seems to work. Thanks.
BTW: I still don’t get AxCrypt on my context menu in PowerDesk. Where do I look for a solution for this?September 26, 2016 at 16:18 #4193
Great news, Dave!
To get AxCrypt into the context menu, two conditions have to be met:
1) You have to use the actual .msi-installer, you can’t just run the standalone version.
2) You must have Windows Explorer, or a compatible replacement of the right bitness. If your operating is 64-bit, your explorer shell replacement must also be 64-bit, and must be Windows Explorer compatible.September 26, 2016 at 16:34 #4194
PowerDesk is located in the Program Files (x86) folder, so I guess it’s not compatible. Thanks.September 27, 2016 at 12:34 #4203
I am having problem decrypting files using AxCrypt online manager on Windows 10. It pops up a message: “AxCrypt File Encryption has stopped working”
What should I do to decrypt my files?September 27, 2016 at 13:26 #4207
Start by doing what the other poster in this thread did to resolve his issue: Look in the Event Viewer to see what actually caused the crash.
