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 December 3, 2014 at 1:14 am #517 Alex MayKeymaster 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 December 3, 2014 at 12:46 pm #520 AndrewParticipant 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 December 3, 2014 at 9:19 pm #526 Alex MayKeymaster 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 December 4, 2014 at 9:56 am #528 AndrewParticipant Wow thats a pretty useful tool! these are the files it says are missing API-MS-WIN-CORE-KERNEL32-PRIVATE-L1-1-1.DLL API-MS-WIN-CORE-PRIVATEPROFILE-L1-1-1.DLL API-MS-WIN-SERVICE-PRIVATE-L1-1-1.DLL API-MS-WIN-CORE-SHUTDOWN-L1-1-1.DLL EXT-MS-WIN-NTUSER-UICONTEXT-EXT-L1-1-0.DLL IESHIMS.DLL Is that any help? December 4, 2014 at 10:25 am #530 AndrewParticipant however my googling suggests these may be false positives Author Posts Viewing 6 posts - 1 through 6 (of 6 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
