EmClient does not start, crashing in DB Rebuild

EMClient.exe will not start up. When I run it, it attempts a DB repair but crashed before the app can start. This is the exception:

Faulting application name: MailClient.exe, version: 7.2.35595.0, time stamp: 0x5cdd2ba2

I have the some problem - “checking for corupted database - failed” and here are some details

I don’t think the two issues are the same.

Paul, your best bet is to download the current version of eM Client from https://www.emclient.com/download and see if there is any difference. 

V, unfortunately if there is an issue with the database that cannot be corrected, then your best option will be to delete the current one, and either start again or restore from your most recent backup. To delete the database either rename or delete the C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\eM Client\ folder. You may have to enable hidden items in Explorer to get there.

Thank you very much.

I did install the latest version which was able to plow through the DB repair task just fine.
(i have emails dating back to 1992, so huge db files !)
