Peer Guardian 2 exception error


PeerGuardian is a free, open-source application created by Phoenix Labs capable of blocking both incoming and outgoing connections based on IP blacklists. It can also block custom ranges depending on the user preferences. Unfortunately this program has been discontinued and the developer recommends current users to migrate to PeerBlock which is based on PeerGuardian 2.

Because there is no clear error number mentioned in the dialog box, the exception error is more of a bug in the program. That means if it is a bug then the next possible version will surely have all the bug fixes. I’ve already seen similar exception errors happened in different users and there seems to be no clear solution.

Your first option is to reinstall it. Uninstall PeerGuardian, restart your computer, and then install PeerGuardian again. See if this works. If it doesn’t, download the latest version from PeerGuardian Latest Release. You may also visit PeerGuardian Files to see other versions of PeerGuardian that includes versions on Mac OS X and Linux.

And since Phoenix Labs already encourages migrating to PeerBlock, you can download it from PeerBlock 1.1 Stable.
