Seems WhatPulse doesn’t like a lot of RAM, after upgrading from 6GB to 18GB the app refuses to start with an “WhatPulse has stopped working” error.
I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled it
I’ve cleaned out all associated files and tried to run it clean
I’ve tried various compatibility modes, with and without admin privs
It worked flawlessly before the upgrade without any special settings, now it won’t start without an immediate crash. No debug files are created. Icon pops up in taskbar but disappears after crash. Tried memory testing tools to see if RAM is faulty, no errors found, and no symptoms with any other software (so far). All my other systems run Win7 x64 also but not with more than 6GB RAM except for this one.
OS: Windows 7 Pro x64
RAM: 18GB (worked fine with 6GB)
Sys: Intel i7-950 with DEP support
DEP disabling won’t work with this app.

Not sure if the crash issue for me was related to Memory or what not but I uninstalled and then I went to C drive. → Users → Username → appdata → roaming.
Then deleted / renamed whatpulse folder and then reinstalled.
It is working now.
