EMET 5.5 Unhandled Exception RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I right-click on the EMET icon (v5.5) and select "Open EMET", I get a "EMET Service status is: Not Running" dialog.  Retry simply redisplays the dialog.

    If I select "Cancel", I get an unhandled exception dialog:

    The stack trace is:

    System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Let me know if you need further details (I wasn't permitted to upload images).

    Pressing "Continue" seems to show the GUI, except with the System Status pane with a large cross in it.

    Is EMET still working effectively?

  • Try uninstall it and restart your PC and then reinstall it.

    Did you installed any program before problem started?

  • Same issue here.
    Simply re-installing does not solve the problem.

    OS used is Win10 Enterprise IoT (LTSB), so a fairly old version of Windows 10.

    The issue will only come up once the default for Maximum Security Settings is used. I am still in the process of manually dialing in the configuration to a point where I can identify the trigger. This is a clean system, part of development efforts, no applications installed yet.

  • Thanks, but that didn't have any effect - the error still occurs.  It seems to only be a display issue - the protection still seems to work - so I'll leave it there.
