Thank you for the crash report Marco,

Could you please send a mini-crash dump:
  • In Everything, from the Help menu, click Check for updates.
    ---wait for Everything to crash---
  • Keep the crash dialog open.
  • Download Process Explorer from Microsoft:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/process-explorer
  • In Process Explorer, select Everything.exe (If there is two, select the one using the most memory)
  • Right click Everything.exe and under Create Dump, select Create Mini Dump.
  • Choose a filename and click Save.
  • Please send this file to support@voidtools.com

voidtools.com is under a bit of load today.

This crash occurs when voidtools is overloaded and returns an error page instead of the update information.
I will work on a fix.

Thank you.

No need for the crash dump at this stage.

I have found the issue and will post a fix soon.

  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab on the left.
  • Check Check for updates on startup.
