Win 8.1 client won't start if EMET's EAF is enabled

Win 8.1 client won’t start if EMET’s Export Address Table Access Filtering is enabled for syncthing.exe.

Not sure if I’m posting this issue in the right forum. Most Win apps work with EAF enabled.

I can confirm this in Windows 7 as well. Noticed it some time ago.

While most Windows apps will run with the EAF mitigation enabled in EMET, there are several high profile peer to peer applications that do not, including Skype and DropBox. See here:

I don’t think this is a serious shortcoming or security hole in Syncthing. I simply disabled the EAF mitigation and moved on.
