VeraCrypt v1.4 opens web browser after boot


Once you've upgraded to v1.4 and restarted your system, VeraCrypt attempts to open a link to a page with the list of changes in the new release. On my system, however, VeraCrypt simply opened Google Chrome at its default page ( and nothing more happened.

Just a tiny, unimportant issue but I thought you might want to know :-)

P.S. And thanks for a great piece of software!

What happens when you performing the following in the GUI?

Help > Version History

That works as it should - I am immediately taken to the Version History page using Google Chrome.

Is your VeraCrypt configured for a different language other than English?

Settings > Language

No. But my Windows itself is a Danish Windows 8.1 x64.

Just upgraded to v1.15 of VeraCrypt and this time the post-boot web browser opened at the correct page.

Don't know if the problem has been fixed or if it was caused by some other factor outside the control of VeraCrypt.
