These two problems puzzle me. These tasks are handled by the installer. I'm using "Inno Setup" which is very popular. I will try to find out more about this.

Could be the same problem as 3.1

Do you have any files with filenames that use unicode characters? Unfortunately Flash Renamer does not handle these correctly, and the message you describe probably indicates this.

Please try this for me: Open the program folder where Flash Renamer is installed. Rename the file "FlashRen.exe.manifest" to "_FlashRen.exe.manifest". Now start Flash Renamer and see if the problems still exists.

Next, please also try to add a DEP exception for Flash Renamer and see if this helps in any way? Here are images to show how to find it:

Press Windows+Pause ...

... go to advanced ...

... and to dep ...

Is your Windows modified/hacked in any way?

Thank you for reporting this to me. I will do my best to fix the problems!
