    Hi,

    Thanks for letting us know about this problem. I really appreciate this.

    We just released a Fiddler beta with the fix. You could get it by clicking on Download beta here -https://www.telerik.com/download/fiddler. If updating is not an option you could use the noversioncheck command line switch when starting Fiddler to avoid this problem.

    Sorry about the trouble.

    Although I have disabled update checks by setting the following registry keys I found earlier, Fiddler seems still to check during startup and throws an exception:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Fiddler2]
    "CheckForUpdates"="False"

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Fiddler2]
    "BlockUpdateCheck"="True"

    Awww, Fiddlesticks!

    The current beta release fixes the issue. When will the next version (containing this fix) be released?

    Hello,

    Rather unfortunately, we cannot commit to a specific date. We are trying, however, to release a new version every couple of weeks so teh wait should not be that long.
