Possible fix

Fix seems to be Fix problems that programs cannot be installed or uninstalled although I tend to use the no longer supported Windows Installer Cleanup Utility.

How to Install and Run the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility if Windows Installer Fails to Work - The Winhelponline Blog I have a copy if needed.

and reinstall this: Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64) from Official Microsoft Download Center

But that's just my take on it!

Aviator vs EMET

Aviator won't run unless EMET is configured as shown. Don't know why - it must be the way it's built!

Running under default settings:

Only one process appears

Running with some settings disabled (I don't remember the settings combination used).

Disconnect, Google Now and Hangout Services crash.

These worked:

I see three processes when it's up and running. Don't know much about them though. Took a look using Resource Monitor and Process Hacker. One runs at Medium Integrity Level and the other two at Untrusted Level. Can't make much sense of the rest of it!

The install video was of a Virtual Machine where the only other installed apps are VirtualBox's Guest additions and .NET 4.5.1. The DLL is there in the Aviator folder, but something fails when installing Aviator into a 64bit or a 32bit W7 pro VM.

I have sent an inquiry to Whitehat as far as that .DLL problem goes after installation. I installed Chrome (wasn't sure if Aviator had certain dependencies from it) but it did not resolved the issue.

I installed Aviator from a fresh install so the windows Cleanup Utility most likely won't help.

I'm on the train heading to work so I'm sorry if I miss a post already providing a solution to this problem.

Hi there.

if you need a secure browser there's only one type -- use an old fashioned paper ENCYCLOPAEDIA. No spyware etc -- just takes a bit longer to use of course and all the links aren't always available. 100% safe though. !!!

Using the Internet always carries a certain amount of risk -- just have a clean backup image that you can restore if you feel your system isn't working properly or has got some ad/trial/spy or other rubbish ware installed somehow. I don't like things like registry cleaners / system scanners etc.

Cheers
jimbo

No way.
You could get an infection from a paper cut
...or drop a book on your toes
...or the shelf could fall on you.

Aviator in VM

I get a similar issue but Aviator runs okay! Used VMware Player. Aviator installs no problem. I only get the error when I try to launch Aviator and then it still runs.
