I’m starting a thread about this error because it’s still happening with 2.0.4. Ever since 2.0.2 crashed the first time it tried to pulse, versions 2.0.2 and beyond crash when starting (unless I delete whatpulse.db). So, unless I stick with 2.0.1, I have to pulse before every reboot, delete whatpulse.db and lose my offline stats, then enter all my settings again on startup.
I think it’s a problem with my WhatPulse account itself, because it’s affecting both systems. Maybe the developers could reproduce the problem if they try to connect to my account.
I have not had any problems with random crashes or applications conflicting with WP. The 2.0.2 crash on pulse that started this problem was the first crash I had.
Good to know I’m not the only one, but I have the problem only with my Win7x64 system, the laptop and server which both run Win7x86 have Whatpulse installed and working with the new 2.0.4 version. Before 2.0.4(since 2.0.2) I couldn’t run on either system.
have you checked what other possible differences these systems have?
maybe it’s something like java or flash? or maybe win updates? anything that is running on your x64 system that isnt running on the x86 ones (that could cause the crash)?
I guess I will join the discussion. I’m running 2.0.4 but since 2.0.2 the application refuses to start up on Windows boot. This is the same issue as everyone else. On this account, I’ve ran on x86 Windows XP Professional SP3 (on a domain), on a laptop running x64 Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, and this machine which is running x64 Windows 8 Professional. The Windows 8 won’t even give me an error message. The application just won’t open period. The Windows XP lags out until I hit the spacebar to get rid of the WhatPulse message and the Windows 7 machine doesn’t lag out but the same error appears.
Same issue as everyone else, crashing on startup both Windows 8 64-bit and Windows 7 64-bit. On Win7 it gives me an error that the program has stopped working, on Win8 it just ‘lags’ my mouse movement for 1-2 sec and then whatpulse.exe disappears from process list.
On Win7 it hangs my mouse completely for a few seconds before crashing and showing an error message.
