Attempting a search causes app to crash

A couple times a month I will do a search in the client. Today I went to do a search and as soon as I start typing in the search box, the app freezes then a few seconds later crashes.

I even tried to use the advanced search and again as soon as I type in the search box, it freezes then crashes.

As a start, you might want to try upgrading to the current version from (Release History | eM Client) and see if that will resolve your issue

Interesting. I clicked on the “check for updates” multiple times and it said no updates. In the past, It would also prompt to install an update. Clicking on that link, I see there have been 3 updates since the one I had.

I installed the latest version and search is working again. Thanks.

I’m having almost the same problem. I also did not get any notifications for new updates to install, even when I manually checked for updates from within the eM Client app. I downloaded the most recent update from eM Client’s website and have isntalled it, but my problem persists. The app still crashes whenever I try to search for soemthing. The only difference is that it looks like I have to hit “enter” to initiate the search before the app crashes. Just typing in the search field doesn’t seem to trigger it, unlike jst3761’s case.

Is there anything else I can do to fix the problem?

Thank you,

You can send me an email at [email protected] and let me know the email address you entered in the crash report. I will have a look and see what the issue is.

The error in the crash reports is: database disk image is malformed

You can try closing eM Client and opening a Windows Command Prompt. Not a powershell, but a command prompt.

Paste in this command including the leading "

"C:\Program Files (x86)\eM Client\MailClient.exe" /dbrepair

When that is done, restart eM Client, and try the search again.
