Process Hacker can kill my anti-virus software! Is this a bug in the anti-virus software?
No. Anti-virus software does not protect you from yourself. Please do not report these incidents as bugs because you will be wasting their time.
Symbols don't work properly!
Firstly, you need the latest dbghelp.dll version:
1) Install the latest Windows SDK (links are below).
2) Open Process Hacker options via the main menu: Hacker > Options
3) Click Symbols, and locate dbghelp.dll
Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 SDK: C:\Program Files\Debugging Tools for Windows (x86)\
Windows 8 or above SDK:
32bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.x\Debuggers\x86\
64bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.x\Debuggers\x64\
Secondly, you need to configure the search path. If you don't know what to do, enter: SRV*SOME_FOLDER*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols
Replace SOME_FOLDER with any folder you can write to, like D:\Symbols.
Now you can restart Process Hacker and see full symbols.
Why can't I build Process Hacker?
The most likely problem is that you do not have the latest Windows SDK installed.
Download: Windows 10 SDK
Is Process Hacker compatible with anti-cheat software such as BattlEye?
Yes, we have worked closely with Anti-cheat vendors and Process Hacker is completely compatible with BattlEye, EAC, PunkBuster and Warden.
However, Valve Corporation and the VAC team will suspend (and in some cases ban) your Steam account unless you close Process Hacker and disable KProcessHacker before playing VAC protected games. We do not know the reasons behind this decision since Valve has refused every attempt by our team to discuss this issue (going back to October 2015).
