Magician 6.2 won't start

Like everyone else Magician 6.2 won't load at boot. Downloaded and installed 6.1 and all is fine again. Running Windows 10 Pro OS build 19041.508 with an 970 EVO.

Does anyone ever check new software before pushing it out? :-)

Solved !!!    Windows security in Windows 10 2004 is crippling Samsung Magician and related Rapid mode.  I applied all possible exceptions and none worked. Solution: Install  Avast free Antivirus;  it's better than Windows 10 security and Magician 6.2 works like a charm.

Interesting. I use Avira instead of Defender and still have this issue. So you just disabled Defender and everything started working?

Nope.  I'm running ESET with Windows Security disabled and still having issue.  ESET is not detecting any conflicts and I'm running the whole shebang as administrator.

Hi, @userTeOo1KBPAu I had the same issue... and same AV, ESET.

I made some test and fixed disabling HIPS auto-protection.

 

Hope this helps

Cheers

Re: Magician 6.2 won't start

Well, thanks for the Info, and this is no reflection on you of course, just Samsung and their ridiculous lack of sense when it comes to update/application development.  No thank you, I'm not disabling a root function of my virus/malware protection to have this application run.  That needs to be addressed by Samsung.  Samsung, are you reading these posts?

 

Oh, and Samsung, your two factor authenticaion s*cks.  I had to use back-up codes twice now to login and never received the codes.  Yes, the phone number is correct.  Gees, get with  it guys.  Either get some decent developers or actually TEST your work.

Re: Magician 6.2 won't start

Not a solid solusion if you ask me - I have the same issue. Software like Samsung Magician should work with a "stock" version of Windows. version 6.1x worked just fine and have always been working fine. - My solution was to uninstall it, and forget about it, pc runs smooth and without any issues now Smiley Happy
