A download, install and quick play around with a few epubs on Windows 10 all went smoothly.

Thanks as always to Diap and Kevin as always for your great work on Sigil!

I've tried editing about 8 epubs without using windbg and so far no unexpected closes.

Using 2.0.2 on 8 epubs went smoothly. (Using win 11 pro build 22621.2428)

A very big thank you for all the heavy lifting.

I think something is wrong in my case. When I tried to select files in the left pane using the shift + down arrow keys, sometimes it was not working, sometimes it was working, but I can't play it consistently. Finally, when I clicked on the save icon, it just closed the application.
I'm sorry I can't give more details, other than I'm using Windows 10.

Edit: Just to add that when I installed the new version the first thing that appeared was a Windows warning, something that did not happen when I installed the previous version again.

Edit: I'm very sorry, I think the first error is due to a glitch in my shift key.

The Windows warning typically happens when the new installer has not been seen enough yet. Either that, or your unnecessary (IMO) third-party Windows anti-malware is being overly paranoid/aggressive.

There is nothing structurally different about this installer in comparison to previous ones. The Sigil code-source changes compared to the last release are trivial. The main difference is a newer version of Qt6.

Try uninstalling your current version of Sigil and making sure its program directory is empty before installing 2.0.2. No preferences will be lost and hopefully Window's overzealous security "features" should be appeased.

Other options are to install Sigil using winget or Chocolatey. They both use the official Sigil installer, but they've scanned and approved it, so Windows doesn't pop a bunch of silly warnings about "unknown publishers" and "potentially harmful" programs when using their repositories. They both had Sigil 2.0.2 available in less than 24 hours after release.

Another way past that windows warning message is to click on "more info" and then it gives you the option to install anyway. If you are really concerned you can check the hash code before installing, but I've never had to do that with Sigil.

I've had one report where stupid Norton was blocking the Sigil 2.0.2 installation because the installer was trying to delete files from Sigil's own program directory. The Sigil installer has ALWAYS done that. And why would it be a problem in an in-place update/install?

The InstallDelete functionality of InnoSetup is standard, and Sigil has used it to create its Windows installers for years and years.

Just further proof (for me) that third-party Windows antivirus programs are a waste of time, money, and resources. They cause more problems than they prevent.

↑ ↑ ↑ ✔

I've removed one Norton Suite from a neighbour's PC, and 11 Avira's (from teacher's laptops at a local school) in recent months.

BTW Norton, Avast, Avira, and AVG are all Symantec brands, which has rebranded itself as 'Gen Digital'.

Sigil and Page Edit 2.0.2 installed fine for me.

I just updated today. All attempts to open ANY epub file crashes Sigil 2.0.2.

How might I re-intstall Sigil 2.0.1 instead please?

I never ever had any problems with crashing bugs in Sigil 2.0.1. But now, I can't even open epubs I previously used Sigil to edit.

After initially only updating, I think completely uninstalled Sigil, reinstalled Sigil, and restarted my machine. The problem remains. ALL epubs crash Sigil.

I use Vipre (antivirus). As it is very efficient, I tried turning it off. The problem remains.

I'm running Windows 10 on a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga.

Just reinstall 2.0.1. There is no upgrade/downgrade process for Sigil.

Sigil 2.0.2 updated its Qt to 6.5.3, so making sure your video drivers are updated to the latest version is always a good idea.

Sounds like broken system extension that generates thumbnails for the epub file type. Try rebooting with System Extensions off or in Safe mode.
