Sysplant is not handling sysfer injections correctly when the target executable has no explicit Import Address Table set and the file section containing the import directory has a VirtualSize of zero. Applications with the above factors will crash with access violation on Windows 10 if Sysplant is running.
Issue is fixed in 14.0.x onwards. For 12.1 please follow the below workaround.
