Hi All
I've downloaded OldTimer's WinPFind2 (v1.0.7) and extracted the files from the zip so that they are all in D:\WinPFind2 folder. When I double-click on winpfind2.exe I get an error message "Error reading MFileExplorer1.Directory: List index out of bounds (0)". If I click on OK, the main screen then opens with an hour glass cursor.
If I then click on Run All Scans (while the cursor is still an hour glass), I get "Access violation at address 0045929F in module 'winpfind2.exe'. Read of address 00000004".
Any clue what's causing these errors?
Thanks
Vino

PS I'm definitely not running winpfind2.exe from the zip file.

Hello Vino Rosso

Why do you want to run Winpfind2? Do you know how to use this tool and how to read the logs that it generates?

Hi quietman7
I'm an UnderGrad over at Malware Removal and have used WinPFind2 on victims' computers. ('KotaGuy posts information at MRU on WinPFind2 from Old Timer, including example logs which I admit I'm still learning to understand.)
I wanted to run WinPFind2 on my own computer to see what the victim sees but get the errors mentioned.
Can you help?
Thanks
Vino

Hi Vino. The error is coming from the program not being able to read the contents of the c: drive. Is there anything out of the ordinary regarding the c: drive (how is it formatted, partitioned, the contents etc).

Cheers.

Hi OldTimer
Many thanks for your reply.
The C: drive on my PC is a recovery partition of 10 Gig.
Windows (XP Home) and all my programs live on the D: partition which is around 40 Gig.
Winpfind.exe was extracted to a folder on the D: drive (D:\WinPFind2).
Thanks
Vino

Ok. If the C: partition is not accessible through explorer then that is why. The file browser defaults to the C: drive and if it cannot get to it then it will fault out. Once it does that nothing else will work either.

I was thinking of making some changes to the file browser anyway so maybe in a future verison that will be resolved. For now, WinPFind2 will simply not run on a machine configured like the one you have.

Cheers.

Thanks for explaining and answering my question.

An excellent program - I'll just have to wait for a later version to experience WinPFind for myself!

Cheers
Vino
