I've run EAC for years with no problem. New computer with Windows 8, which i HATE, is giving me troubles.

Install works fine. No errors.

But once I try to open the program I get the "Access Violation" error. "Unhandled exception" at "6AF2ADF0"

Only when I click "OK" in that error box does the ECA is starting up window close, but the program has not opened.

.NET Framework 3.5 is installed.

new WnAspi32.dll added

new cygwin1.dll added

Still not working. Help!

You can delete EAC settings from the registry by first opening regedit (hit Win-key, type regedit, hit enter) and navigating to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AWSoftware and deleting that AWSoftware key.

Event Viewer is fastest to open similarly from the start screen search. Just type eventvwr.msc and hit enter. Double click Windows Logs and select Application under it. It should list your EAC troubles with red stop sign followed by text "Error". These reports can show crashes that have happened without any visible window on screen and may mention dll file names that are causing the crashing.

By more info I meant simple things like what version of EAC is that and did you try it before putting random dlls into its dirs. Also the installer has plenty of plugins you might have tried it without.
