Recently we have seen a lot of codes used to unlock our products being offered for discounted prices. Almost all of them are bought using stolen credit cards. These codes will all be blocked by our systems and you will have to try to get your money back from the seller, we are unable to assist in these matters. Do be very careful when you see a deal that is almost too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

Winch X Error

Recommended Posts


After many many years using WinchX! with no problems, it now fails to load.

This is most probably caused by a recent windows upfdate for Windows10


I get "WinchX! has stopped working" error message

My Windows Event log shows the following.

Anyone got any ideas on how to fix this?

Please copy the line below into the address field of Windows Explorer:




There you will find a number of directories named "WinchX.exe_Url...". Delete them all and try again.

Background: These directories store the configuration through WinchX!' user interface (one directory per released version). If such configuration got corrupt, WinchX! may fail upon start. If missing, the settings directory will be created new automatically.
