EcereSDK not opening/working on Windows 8.1

Postby jonaspm » Wed Feb 11, 2015 9:57 am

Hi Jerome, redj and everyone! :D

I have a problem... it seems that EcereSDK is not working on Windows 8.1

I don't know if it's just my computer or if it's happening on every Windows 8/8.1 installation.

Here are my computer specs:

EcereSDK v0.44.10

Hi Jonas,

Sorry you're running into issues with Windows 8.1.

We definitely want to help you out!
Could you post some more details to try to figure out what's going on?

Also if you can manage at all, I would invite you to join #ecere on irc.freenode.net as this may require a lot of back and forth. Also, the community is quite lively there at the moment so it's a good place to hang around!

Cheers,

Jerome

Note that I successfully ran Ecere without any problems on Windows 8.

I've ran into issues on someone's Windows 8.1 laptop though and was quite at a loss to figure out what was going on, but it related to building applications if I recall correctly.

Well, basically EcereIDE won't start.

I double click on the shortcut icon to ide.exe but in the Task Manager the process ide.exe flashes (opens but closes again).


I have tried Windows 8.1 backward compatibility with Windows 7 and Vista without success...

Also tried running with admin rights but didn't work either :/

Any ideas?

Hi Jonas,

Can you come on IRC or are you on Google talk?

The forums are not a very good place to diagnose such problems.

I would ask you to try other Ecere executables to see if they start, from the command-line, starting with 'ecc' for example.

Hello Jerome! Today I couldn't join you on IRC but i have another issue to report...

After installation of new v0.4.11, the IDEs about dialog still shows 'v0.4.10'

I don't know if this is a real mistake or if it's normal...

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jonas,

Does the about dialog say: 0.44.10-40-g1a195e7 ?

I believe I made a mistake when building the installer, I had not tagged the release yet.
I will rebuild and re-upload the installer to fix that, but it is otherwise the exact same thing, so no worries.

commit 1a195e724ae8119a9822e386514111d31de74fd2 (tag: 0.44.11)

The '1a195e7' is the beginning of the hash ID for 0.44.11.

Thanks for letting me know!

And I hope we can spend some time together soon to resolve the Windows 8 issues you are having.

Best regards,

Jerome

Hi Jonas,

No you can't see messages on IRC unless there is a public log available.
This is why most people just always stay on IRC.
This is not really feasible with the Web applets though, so you're better off using a client such as mIRC on Windows or XChat on Linux.

Regards,

Jerome
