I share George's thoughts. I also run 8.8.9, although I have PC set to run both. Ver 9, in my opinion, was released too soon. Great vision for new features, but they're not there. What we have in ver 9 is a stable platform, but inferior (again, in my opinion) to version 8.8.9. I don't regret paying for the upgrade because I have confidence the developers will eventually fix the product and deliver the new features, but that seems a distant future. For now, I use 8.8.9 with occasional forays with ver 9.
Having said this, I cannot answer the original poster's question on stability. He may want to try version 9 in trial mode. That requires backing up current version first, but if 8.8.9 isn't working, that seems a way forward. Good luck. david
Have you tried deleting config.cdb I had a violation issue too, now it gone! It also fixed my very long startup and shutdown of the bat! config.cdb was first 1.5 gb now 33kb now that saving space hahahahaha

Did the crashes happen at startup? If so, /nologo has probably solved them for you.
No, the crashes didn't happen at startup. At the beginning I had the feeling it was better but as you said it didn't solved the issue, apparently it's back 2x already today and it's only 10AM. I posted a ticket with support

hope it works for you too!
Mine is 220kb. Do you know what it contains ? Last time it was updated appears to be more than 1 month ago right the day I installed TheBat on that new notebook
corobori2005 I also started to get access violation errors with 8.8.9 on Windows 7 (had 7.4. before). It always crashed after "Processing folder" dialog showed up - which I don't know why it started, when I had this func turned off. Anyway 9.1.6 solved that problem, now on W7 it's going without problem. I'm just missing small icon panel toolbar. Maybe that suggestion would help?
Guys, I'm not using encryption, and still can't find config.cdb anywhere in account's folder or even The Bat! folder in Program Files... Today BAT crashed twice - with error access violation and also new error "Invalid pointer operation."...
Are you positive? Suggestion: Go to Options | Preferences | System and check which folder is your "Mail folder". Then open Explorer (or a file manager), go to that folder and look for files named config*.* there and in its subfolders.

OK Daniel, I found it in %APPDATA%\The Bat!\ and deleted config.cdb so we will see. Meanwhile I sometimes get another error "invalid pointer operation", well maybe that will be also solved by removing config file.
