    I may be missing something here, but I can’t seem to run PWL on my windows 8.1 pc. I can run it with no problems on my xp pc, however it won’t even run in windows xp compatibility mode on 8.1

    any thoughts

    Hi Andrew,

    Sorry for the slow reply – have been out of the country.

    What version are you trying to run?

    It works fine on my 8.1 PC’s, so perhaps I missed something in the installation.

    Many thanks,

    Alex

    Hi There,

    Thanks for getting back to me. I’ve tried both beta and stable to no avail.

    Are there some minimum requirements I need to know about, for example is quicktime needed? I have had issues installing qt and have since opted for qt alternative.

    I’m at a bit of a loss, so any help would be gratefully received!

    Cheers

    Andy

    The only requirement it has is the Microsoft Visual C++ runtime, which should be included in all the recent installers.

    It doesn’t use Quicktime so that shouldn’t affect it.

    The best way to find out what’s missing is to use a free application called Dependency Walker, which can be downloaded from:

    http://www.dependencywalker.com/

    If you can run that, select the PaintingWithLight.exe and see what it says is missing, it would help me solve the issue.

    Many thanks,

    Alex

    API-MS-WIN-CORE-SHUTDOWN-L1-1-1.DLL

    however my googling suggests these may be false positives
