Clamwin crashing, unable to locate directory.

I have clamwin version 0.88 installed on Win2k sp4.

Symptoms
1. Crashing on most options.
2. Crashing when I open outlook with message like "Unable to access file "C:\Documents and Settings\Me\Local Settings\Temp\bla some tmp directory\image001.jpg - Virus deleted by clamwin.txt"
3. Unable to send any message with attachments.


In reviewing what I have done over the past weeks I correlated the installation of cwrsync to the start of the problems. Reviewing the Clamwin faq's showed there needed to be an entry for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cygnus Solutions\Cygwin\mounts v2\/tmp. As per the faq I created the required entry. Clamwin still crashed, cwrsync fine.

I disabled the cwrsync service, crashing stopped.

I have noted there are different versions of cygwin1.dll from the clamwin install to the cwrsync installation. Cwrsync has a version of 1005.19.0.0 and clamwin has a version of 1005.18.0.0.

Has anybody experienced this problem ?

Can I simply copy the cygwin1.dll into the clamwin directory ?

Is there something about the required registry entries I am missing ?


I would really like to keep both cwrsync and clamwin running, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

FAQ: http://www.clamwin.com/content/view/77/27/
if the other cygwin1.dll is newer (as it appears in your case) then you should copy it over cygwin1.dll in clamwin directory.

Alch,

Thanks for the help.

I copied over cygwin1.dll and all seems to be fine so far. Guess I should have gone further into the faq's.


Thanks again.
