I've tried to add some apps in C:\Games\ folder to ignore, so I created a new group in "Ignored list" called "Games" and tried to add C:\Games\ to the "File Path Pattern" field.
And after pressing OK it just crashed my whole system, but without any BSOD or anything (been a while since I've seen this happen). I had to hard-reset. I tried doing it again same thing, but now apparently it also saved this setting, so it'd crash on every boot, had to safe-boot and uninstall it.
Any idea what can be behind these awful crashes?

I have a bunch of AppCrash_StrokesPlus.exe_c2cddb77fbfcef9573903fbd9099b82c7c14ab2e_4911a0eb_271b4582
folders in c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ with one Report.wer file like this one http://pastebin.com/d0vcCeTt

There is also one with a 90Mb memory dump memory.hdmp and a few other files

That's not a valid regular expression, which doesn't surprise me that it would crash. Not because it should crash, but Boost doesn't seem to handle bad regex patterns very well...nor did I code the proper exception handling either, to be fair.

I'm on my phone, so I can't give you a good pattern right now, but Google regexlib. Go to that site and use the Regex Tester to create a good pattern. Though something like .*games.* will work, though it could match on some paths you don't want matched.

The only way to get things working again would be to edit your StrokesPlus.xml file, find your pattern and just replace it with an empty string.

Ok, no problem, I know a great site regexr.com that has a beautiful regex validation interface, just didn't know that a simple path would need regex.
Still, would you kindly try to put an exception for these syntax errors they shouldn't really crash the whole system.

and I now see that "fields are for regular expression matches" staring right at me

The new version/rewrite I'm working on will be much more resilient and graceful :)
