EPF freezes since installing 3.30.1.0 update - solved

Postby coric » 15 Oct 2016, 04:12

I'm running Windows 10 Pro x64 (1607). I just installed EPF 3.30.1.0. It freezes as soon as I select a project and click the Update toolbar button. I have no more info beyond that.

I reinstalled 3.30.1.0 and it didn't help anything. EPF was fine before installing 3.30.1.0.

Restored EPF 3.30.0.0 and it works fine.

Does anyone else experience this one? I tried updating all my projects - worked perfectly. Can you send me your project file to support@exisoftware.com for tests? Also, what about starting a new project in 3.30.1.0? Does it work for you?

Still freezes even after I create a new project (brand new--I don't mean cloning an existing project).

Just emailed an EPR file to you.

Thanks.

I found the problem. It was Microsoft EMET. Specifically, the SimExecFlow mitigation.

I have EMET 5.5 configured for EPF.exe, since EPF accesses untrusted data. For some reason, 3.30.0.0 worked fine with this EMET configuration, but 3.30.1.0 does not. But once the SimExecFlow mitigation is disabled for EPF.exe, the issue goes away.
