Coollector doesn't want to start after the May 29th update. If I reinstall the version on the website, it works fine, but when I open Coollector it starts updating and doesn't work afterwards.

Read in another topic that it had to do with dual monitors? I do have dual monitors.

There is no process running from Coollector in task manager. When I click the .exe you see it very briefly in task manager. Shuts down almost immediately.

I disabled my second monitor. Only use it to watch things in the background. Reinstalled, worked fine, but after it updated it wouldn't start again. Very strange.

Using Windows 10 Pro, updated to the latest version.
Use NOD32 antivirus, but can't find anything in the logs about Coollector.

I'm releasing a new version to fix this bug, sorry for the inconvenience.

In fact it's an incredible story of bad luck... I'm using an exe packer (UPX) to save about 10MB in file size, I've always done that and I've never had any issue with it.

All of a sudden, for an unknow reason, the exe stops working after it's packed, I've discovered it after releasing this version, and that's what happened with the user in the other topic. The app stopped working not because there was a problem with the code, but because of that packer issue.

I don't know why life is so hard with me those days, I'm a black cat, it's bad luck after bad luck :cry2:

The new version is now released.

In your situation, the easiest thing to do is to replace your Coollector.exe with this one:

Thank you very much for reporting this issue and once again all my apologies :worried:
