the .59 isn't launching on my computer neither. The splashscreen flashes for a split second, and then the process terminates.

Using winXP SP2, have ghostscript installed. No firewall, no antivirus, no antispyware nor anything like that. Running as an administrator.

Tried that, and it's still not working. Still getting the same flashing of the splashscreen for a split second.

I was wondering, did you do any changes in .58 that could have the origins of this problem? the .57 works just fine. It's the 58 and 59 that are buggy. Thanks a lot for your time.

have you deleted the whole c:\Program Files\ComicRack and installed it new? .57 works this way and anything newer won't?
Do you have a special path d:\Program files or whatever?

Well, tried deleting everything comicrack related and reinstalled. The problem's still there. As for a special path, no, I only have C://Programfiler (The standard programfiles folder for norwegian versions of XP)

Hi,

I have exactly the same problem. Only .57 works. I have tried .58, .59. .60 and .61.

I just see the splashscreen for a second ... and then nothing ...

I have seen this kind of problem before with an application trying to write some startup data without having the permissions to write them. But I am administrator on my local machine ...

Nor are there any messages in the event-log.

I have Windows XP SP2. I have done all the things you wrote in the previous posts cYo ... but nothing works.

Is it possible fo you to add some debug information that writes information to a txt file so that I can help you to pin down the location in the code where the program just stops?

Best regards,

- G.I.

when i look into the changelog only language support was added between .57 and .58.

try to delete the languages folder in the comicrack installation.
you can also try to delete the scripts folder.

I hope this is not a widespread problem and you two are the only vocal about it...

ok, I found out a little bit more, and with debugging you might be able to figure out what is going wrong I think:

I am also from Norway, so in regional settings I use Norwegian. When I change this to Enligsh (US) version .61 works as normal.

Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Tab Regional Options -> select Norwegian (Bokmål) in the dropdown.

So please test using these regional settigs to find out where the appication stops working

Best regards,

- G.I.
