Hi guys, please run the Help > Check for Updates menu in RC17. Obviously you should get "no updates" message, but more importantly you should not get a crash.

If you experience a crash, please share any details about your network configuration.

Many Thanks!

Works fine, but I never had the crash to begin with, so this is expected.

Windows 10 Pro 20H2 with latest updates.

I've always used Check For Updates and never had a crash, but just to confirm it continues to work as expected in RC17. :)

Please don't shoot the messenger - but Scrivener still shuts down after about 8 seconds. Sorry! I was so hopeful after reading the replies that have gone before.

Give some more info! Which version, 32 Bit or 64 Bit? Which version of Windows?

Thanks, SimWriter!

Could you please upload the last two *.dmp files from the "minidump" subfolder inside the installation folder and a log file generated with ScrivenerLog.bat.
