HeidiSQL Does Not Start

sparks's profile image sparks posted 2 months ago in General Permalink

System: Win 10 HeidiSQL:, 64 bit

Starting HeidiSQL stops right away with following error (in event viewer):

Faulting application name: heidisql.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5df15ee8 Faulting module name: unknown, version:, time stamp: 0x00000000 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x00000000264435e0 Faulting process id: 0x1014 Faulting application start time: 0x01d5b0fd1e71fb87 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\HeidiSQL\heidisql.exe Faulting module path: unknown Report Id: fdeb1855-600b-453c-9cf0-bb3e381cdec0 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:

Any idea what goes wrong? Thanks, Sparks

No idea, sorry.

Is it a "normal" Windows 10?

Please also try using build 5771, the official release.

Hi ! I have the same issue.

But I think you cannot solve this one easily...

System: Professional Win10 (version 1809, OS version 17763.864) 64 bits. Office laptop (so surely modified Windows or intrusive softwares by company).

Under the event viewer:

Problem signature:

  • P1 : heidisql.exe
  • P2 :
  • P3 : 5e0f8036
  • P4 : StackHash_9b53
  • P5 :
  • P6 : 00000000
  • P7 : PCH_8B_FROM_ntdll+0x00000000000A02B4
  • P8 : c0000005
  • P9 : 0000000000000008
  • P10 :

Very similar stack for the version. Differences:

  • P2:
  • P3: 5df0c449

And now the fun part...

Version Portable/Installed bits Does it work
10.2.5599 Installed 64 Yes
10.2.5599 Portable 64 No
10.2.5599 Portable 32 Yes
10.3.5571 Installed 64 No
10.3.5571 Portable 64 No
10.3.5571 Portable 32 Yes

I don't know how to install a 32 bits version on this 64 bits OS.

But with these results, my guess is that some office checking software does not behave well while watching HeidiSQL execution, and must have different behaviour between 32 and 64 bits... Yay -_-

Please let me know if you want more info.
