Error Description:

If you are receiving this Exception EAccessViolation error when opening EasyWorship 7, this will occur on any computer running Windows 7 or older version of Windows. Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 7 in January 2020, so we no longer support EasyWorship on any Windows 7 computer.


The main resolution for this issue, would be to upgrade to Windows 10 or Windows 11. That will no longer cause you to receive this error message. If you will be upgrading to Windows 10 or Windows 11, you may want to backup your EasyWorship database just in case any of your files are deleted during the upgrade process.

Here is a link to an article to help you backup and restore your EasyWorship database:
