Autorunsc and Autorunsc64 crashing when processing logon startups RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Since upgrading to autorunsc/autorunsc64 version 13.90 I am experiencing consistent crashes when attempting to process logon startups.

    Steps to reproduce:

    Run autorunsc.exe and have it process logon startups (-a l)

    What happens:

    autorunsc sends no output, and no errors are sent to the console.

    Why I think it is crashing when processing logon startups:

    Running autorunsc with all options *except* "l" does not cause it to crash.

    autorunsc.exe -s -m -a bcdeghikmnoprstw

    I am not allowed to post links, if someone could allow me to I will post a full crash dump and an example WER file.

  • I've documented crash details/dumps in another Autoruns TechNet thread while helping a user troubleshoot a symptom of this.

    Based on some variance between my results and what was reported by another user, I assumed the bug was not the result of a specific ASEP having an issue. However, I'll check this and report back.

    UPDATE: I ran autorunsc.exe v13.90 with -a bcdeghikmnoprstw (no "l"/logon startups). I can confirm that autorunsc.exe will not crash/generate an error report when login startups are excluded. With this considered, it seems almost certain there is an issue with the logon ASEP parsing/reporting.

  • Mark & Luke just pushed Autoruns v13.91 to https://live.sysinternals.com which resolves this issue :)
