I did not enable “OS file compression”. I enabled file compression exclusively for “awp.exe”. However, last night, my Windows system got automatically updated to the latest available build (19043.1237). And uninstalling a compressed “awp.exe” executable now no longer produces access violations. Prob...

I imagine you can't reproduce that error each time, despite file compression being activated. As I tried unsuccessfully to explain, these violation error messages are systematically displayed on my system each time I try to uninstall Atlantis and I have beforehand activated compression in the file ...

No, I do not have file compression on any of my installs or systems. And I doubt that file compression is the actual cause of the occurrence of that error on your end, either -- for this is how elusive it is acting every time... Coincidence does not equal cause.

To be able to fix any bug in any application, the developers must be able to reproduce the steps as described by end-users. Bugs that cannot be reproduced are quintessentially idiosyncratic.

If you get access violation messages just by launching Atlantis, it can only mean that your install of Atlantis is corrupt, or that your current Atlantis settings have hit on a bug. In which case, it would be much wiser to send your current Atlantis configuration file ("Atlantis.ini") to &...

The most likely culprit is your antivirus or “security suite” trying to be “helpful” and blocking Atlantis as malware or ransomware. Try registering Atlantis (i.e. its executable “awp.exe”) as a safe application with your security/antivirus application. For example, if you are using the AVAST antivi...
