Crash/BSOD on Windows 98

Recommended Posts

A bug to myself! lol

 

 

BDS2006 exe's that are then compressed with UPX are crashing under this OS. I guess it would also effect 95 and possibly Windows Me.

 

As ImgBurn.exe is compressed by UPX, you need to decompress it.

 

You can get v1.25 from http://upx.sourceforge.net/

 

Extract the upx.exe to the same folder as ImgBurn.exe and run the following CLI.

 

Upx -d ImgBurn.exe

 

All will be well in the world once you've done that.

 

 

 

The next release will not use UPX - I'll probably use PECompact instead (I've tested that and it works ok).

Thanks LIGHTNING UK! - This fix works fine on my old P3 computer running Win98SE...

I did realize that UPX was that simple to use.

 

Strangely enough it helped me solve another problem with the latest ImgBurn. Since i updated to vers 1.2.0.0 none of the Disk-Image icons would appear correctly for the types that were associated with ImgBurn. I was wondering if my firewall didn't like icons that were compressed inside a *.EXE after i started investigating.

I havn't noticed problems with other applications using UPX so i wondered if it had something to do with the version of UPX used to compress the file.

 

But now that i know how to expand the file everything is working nicely! :)

 

Great application! Thank you.
