Hi,

After updating Windows 10 to 1709 and installing latest security updates, Actual Window Manager now crashes every time on startup:

This appears to be because of the latest security update that forces mandatory ASLR, as in:

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/srd/2017/11/21/clarifying-the-behavior-of-mandatory-aslr/

FYI, I did NOT make the registry change myself, a security update must have.

Workaround:

1.) Search in Windows for: "windows defender Security Center"

2.) Click on the second icon from the bottom: "App & browser control"

3.) Scroll to the bottom and click on: "Exploit protection settings"

4.) Click Program settings and then the "Add program to customize" button

5.) Click Choose exact file path

6.) Pick ActualWindowManagerCenter.exe

7.) Scroll down to: Force randomization for images (mandatory ASLR)

8.) Check: "Override system settings" and se t to "Off" and click Apply

Do the same for ActualWindowManagerConfig and ActualWindowManagerShellCenter64

Now Actual Window Manager works again without crashing.

Please fix,

Will

Hello, Will

Could you name the exact number of your Windows 10 build (type winver in the Search field of the Windows Start menu, press Enter. The Window containing the build number will appear).

What version of Actual Window Manager are you running?

Does the problem depend on how Actual Window Manager is launched - automatically on system startup or later manually by clicking its icon?

Best regards.
