I have been running WW for several years now without problems, but lately it has not been much fun since the GetFile.exe crashes on my machine (Lenovo X60s, XP Professional well patched every possible way, 2.5 GB memory). It is the well known “memory could not be read” error.
I have opened up the Windows firewall for GetFile.exe without any success, and the error can easily be reproduced by opening up the main WW window asking for a manual update. It is always the instruction at “0x010013ae” that tries to read “0x01120028”. However, new weather data is loaded so outside contact is successfully established. Automatic updates take place every hour.
Receiving the GetFile.exe error every hour is an ordeal and will at one point make me stop using the good WW. Any ideas for how to get rid of this error anyone?
GetFile.exe is new to me, but I just encountered it when checking the task manager about a different program I am running. I saw it briefly in the task manager; it didn’t cause any problem, but I hadn’t seen or heard of it before. Googling it brought me here.
I do use WeatherWatcher, love it and have been using it for a few years, so thought I’d register and reply so that I can be updated on this.
