Manga database and Kuroneko reader both failing to start.

Post by UGLY » Fri Mar 18, 2022 10:17 pm

Hello! Neither Manga database or Kuroneko reader will start, and just crash before anything pops up, and in event viewer both throw two errors,

Faulting application name: Kuroneko Reader.exe, version: 1.2.3.6, time stamp: 0x59be529b
Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 10.0.19041.1566, time stamp: 0x0833f2d4
Exception code: 0xe0434352
Fault offset: 0x0000000000034f69
Faulting process id: 0x1008

Application: Kuroneko Reader.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: exception code e0434352, exception address 00007FFA79504F69

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!

Thanks for the detailed report!

The errors here are very generic (the error code basically states that an error has occurred and little else). Checking Event Viewer was the right move-- If you locate the events pertaining to these crashes, do you see any more detailed information there?

One thing I'd suggest trying is opening "config_reader.ini" in Notepad and setting the home directory ("HOME") to something else, like an empty directory, just in case it's running into problems trying to read from the default directory. If that solves it, that lets us narrow it down a bit.

Where would config_reader.ini be? I cant seem to find it anywhere.
EDIT: I'm now even more confused. Everything works fine on a VM running the same OS. Turns out config_reader.ini did not generate yet, so I copied it over but still nothing.

So it's crashing before it even gets far enough to generate the configuration file, huh. It's probably failing when trying to create and then load the default configuration, then.

The only obvious potential point of failure is when it tries to load the contents of the "HOME" directory, which defaults to C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Downloads\Manga. I don't know if you tried what I suggested already but: After copying the configuration file over, manually set the "HOME" directory to an empty, existing directory.

Tried that, and still no dice, wont work even in safe mode, the only thing I have yet to try is just reinstall my OS.

Edit: I just decided to bite the bullet and reinstall my OS and that fixed it, thanks for your help though, its appreciated!

Well, that's a hardcore fix! I respect the intensity, lol.

Glad it's working now, though! Thanks for the update.
