Access violation in Vista

  bjk 08:41 19 Jul 2008

Never happened before in my Vista. I downloaded and installed MailWasher Free (Vista compatible) from When starting the program two error messages show up: "Acces violation at address ....... in module MailWasher.exe. Write of address 0000044C" and "This code was written for a version of the VCL in which ScaleBy() does not alter the constraints. (C:\Work\Delphi\Projects\MailWasher\app\src\MailWasherCommercial. pas, line 1541)"
Anybody understanding these messages? Is this a Vista problem or a MailWasher problem? I have un-installed the program and deleted the programs registry entries. I appreciate comments.

I don't think its a Vista problem because I have Vista and Mailwasher and I have never experienced this problem.

I'm puzzled by this:

My copy on Vista installed itself in
C:\Program Files\FireTrust\MailWasher Pro

Did you change the default location at the time of installing?

Hi daconnor,
Thanks for response. I did not change the installation, it installed itself exactly as you say. Still this strange behaviour. I know MailWasher Pro very well, I have it running for years on one of my desktops running XP Pro SP2, never, never had problems. This time I would like to run this free version on my new HP laptop with Vista Business, but the program will not work properly. I don't understand the meaning of this strange path, C:\Work\Delphi\etc, what is this? I don't have any folder with these names.

Have you set MailWasher to bounce unwanted mail?

If you have turn it off and see what happens.

These error messages showed up at the first startup of the program, i.e. I had not reached to configure MailWasher to bounce.

OK, but now I'm struggling to suggest anything.
