Launcher crashes on startup (0xc0000005)

Since latest update the launcher seems to crash on startup without any logs. Crash is visible in Windows Event Log with code 0xc0000005 which I believe corresponds to an access violation.

I also opened a support ticket and will report here if I get any response to that.

edit: And I’m using Windows 10

I have the same problem on one of my machines (Windows 7) : it happens only since the last update. Reinstalling everything, including the whole PC did not fix it. No issue on my Windows 10 and my windows 8 rigs though.

[EDIT : this time I had a log]

Same here, reinstalled and updated everything… filing a support ticket next

Please read this thread for fix! Evelauncher.exe - System Error

That thread only has fix for a Windows 7/8. This problem happens for me on Windows 10.

That fix is nort working for me. BTW how do you fill a support ticket. My win is dead now.

Only method so far that has worked for me is to download & install an old launcher and use that.

Where can you download the old launcher?

This should work (it will nag about updating, just cancel it). More recent one will work as well but thats the one I had in my download history.

I cant bealive but this was working for a 1min, launcher was up finally and start updateing, and then again stoped and that erroe 0xc000007b again. How to stop launcher to update to new version? But to update everything else?
btw do you know maybe number.exe of the more recent one?

Sadly no, that worked for me. It did crash on first run for some reason but worked well after that.

Well i can istall the old one, cancel the update, bur after i choose a caracter and try to log on, first i get error that cant write on disk, something with shared cashe, after that crashes again with old error 0xc000007b, and after that want start at all

Same problem here, tried multiple launcher versions and all failing the same way immediately after starting the EVE Launcher.

I’m on a fully up to date Windows 10.

Yup, I have been chatting with support on the issue but sadly no progress yet…

Same problem here. Windows 10 64bit.

Launcher crashes as soon as you start it, only shows up in EventLog. Filed a support ticket earlier today.

Downloading and using EveLauncher-1225328 from above link works, although if you let it update, it’ll crash again.

Same issue happens with the latest version?

Confirming the latest version fixed the issue for me. Thanks!

Still broken for me. Same instant crash as above.
