EN for Windows vers 6.19.8555.0 quickly crashes and can't open it again after crash

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I have Windows 10 Pro version 1803 and Evernote for Windows version 6.19.8555.0. Until a few days ago my Evernote for Windows was working fine. Now it keeps crashing and then I can't restart it. I have already uninstalled it and then re-installed it, and it didn't make a difference. After a reinstall it starts up once, but then soon crashes, and I need to uninstall it, and then re-install it, again.

I reviewed another thread in this forum and someone suggested downloading EN for WIndows from the EN site. But when I go to the EN site to download EN for Windows, they redirect to the Windows store. It doesn't seem like there's a way for me to download EN for Windows without getting it from the Windows store.

Has anyone else had trouble with this latest version for Windows -- version 6.19.8555.0?

Hi again. I posted this on Reddit's EN sub as well, and a kind soul sent me the link to the next version of EN for Windows, available from EN instead of from the Windows store. And it works like a charm, so the new version (6.20.2.8626) has solved my problem. Phew! I wonder why Microsoft doesn't have this latest version in the Windows store. Odd.

Hi.  Glad you got this resolved.  Evernote.com is always the place to get the most up to date version from - Third Party stores like Microsoft and Apple want to 'vet' their software before they offer it to the public,  so it always takes a little longer.

Thanks! This time around I got the latest EN for Windows version from a kind person on Reddit. The URL had 'cdn' in it, which I hadn't seen before. In the future, where do I go on the EN site to get the latest versions of EN for Windows? And is there a way to get updates from EN when the latest version is available? With Android it's easy because I get an automatic update. But it seems that with EN for Windows, I have to proactively monitor the EN site to find out when the latest version gets released. Thanks in advance for any guidance you may have about these things. 😊

To check for updates yourself: Help / Check for updates

To have Evernote check for you automatically: Tools / Options / General --> [ ] Automatically check for updates

Just as a note to that... Sometimes EN will rollout with a smaller auto-update initially (for instance, targeting 5%) and then increase when few/no problems arise. The auto-check is subject to that limited rollout. When you manually check, the limited rollout is ignored. (So, yes. Sometimes EN won't tell you a new version exists - but if you manually check (magic!) a new version is there.)

Good to know (though I'll probably forget)...

But this is a rare case -- sort of a cautious rollout, I guess -- wondering whether this is aimed at specific classes of accounts, or first-come-first-served on auto-update events, or just random, or something else? My curiosity aside, the general case still stands, though.

Thanks for the insight.

Not sure the actual logic (that's on the server), but I think it's random based on the user id. (I know I implemented some A/B tests in the code that did things like account numbers ending in <specific digit>) Generally, you want random - but reproducible!

Got it. I suppose you could also just do a hash of the account number using a random seed value (that's retained for reproducibility), which might make it easier to produce a specific percentage that's not evenly divisible by 10. But yeah I get the idea.
