Kleopatra crashed with qwindows.dll.
Testing, NormalPublic


I have a user that uses GPG4Win and Kleopatra. When they try to create a key pair through the gui, it disappears/crashes.
Have removed and reinstalled the software. This is a newly imaged system. If they use the command line to create a key pair, it works fine.
This what I have in the event viewer:

Any ideas? Is there any other info needed that could help move this along?

there was an issue that has been fixed in 3.1.14 which was creating problems / crashes when the home directory of a user had a unicode character in it. So maybe your one user had such a username?

Could you please retest with the recently released version 3.1.14? Thanks!
