Fails to work, Crashes, w/ Win7-32bits...

Reported by: Czerno Assignee:

Module: Adblock-Plus-for-Internet-Explorer Keywords:

Ready: no Confidential: no
Tester: Unknown Verified working: no
Review URL(s):


Complete failure with :

  • Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate 32 bits,
  • processor AMD-Athlon XP, (has no SSE2, just in case...?)
  • IE11 without any prior add-ons; BHOs are NOT disabled in Internet Settings.

ABP versions : tried current 1.3, beta 1.4, older 1.2 : same punishment!

Problem Details :

ABP Install is (silently) incomplete, no lists downloaded,
NO "patterns.ini" created; "Settings.ini" as hereunder


  • Oddly, Setup interacted in French, although Windows system locale=en-US.

(used some geolocation ? some systems setting?)

  • after so-called "successful" setup, and BHO enabled in IE11,

yet nothing ABP-related in IE, status bar or otherwise.
No lists appear to have been downloaded.

  • ABP doesn't suppress advs (obviously) BUT the BHO crashes,

randomly during browsing and *always* upon closing IE11.

  • Only disabling BHO in IE11 (and subsequent removal from control panel)

cures the crashes.

Sample app crash report follows :

This is the first time we see an issue like this. Could you please elaborate what do you mean by: ABP Install is (silently) incomplete. Does the installer give you any error code? Can you please run the msi installer from here: (not an exe) with these parameters:
adblockplusie-1.1-x86.msi /L*V "C:\Temp\msilog.log
This will produce a log file of the installation process in c:\Temp\msilog.log. Please attach that file to this issue.
