I ran into a really strange crash with DBVM. Steps to reproduce:

1. In System Properties, go to the Environment Variables dialog and create an entry under User variables for "HOME=c:\home"
2. Create directory c:\home
3. Start DBVM, crash.
4. Reboot, remove environment variable and start DBVM again... No crash.

I've tested this on two PCs now, but can anyone else confirm this?
What could be causing this??

Not sure. Perhaps cheat engine crashes because of it during the wait for dbvm to launch, and then it returns things go wrong

Or perhaps there is a bug with the way dbvm allocates memory and an environment that's 12 bytes longer completely screws it up ?
(when 6.4 is released I'll give it a closer look again)

Ok I have no idea what was going wrong here, but now I can't reproduce this crash on my laptop anymore. DBVM is working fine there. Sorry for the confusion... Smile
