Blitz+ Terminal FailureBlitzPlus Forums/BlitzPlus Programming/Blitz+ Terminal Failure
| Blitz+ has been nothing but a horror on this machine. B2D works just fine. I have noticed b+ acts differently on just about every machine I place it on. Now the IDE itself wont even open, whenever I try I get this:|
I have reinstalled it twice and i have the 137 update. When the IDE used to open blitzcc would still crash on every single compile. If you made blitzcc crash twice then it would freeze, requiring reboot.
| Your sig. says XP but that dialog box looks like a '98 one. When you say 'this machine', do you mean the one in your sig. or are you referring to something else? |
| That PC's mobo is going through the RMA process with ABit. This is occurring on my Win98 / PII 233 / GeforceFX 5200 / DX9b machine.|
* Update *
Now when I try it gives me a new error msg:
And yes this is still b+ contrary to the title bar
| Maybe you have both B+ and Blit2D and B+ opens the Blitz2D compiler ? It could be some wrong path. |
| Nope, thats the msg the B+ IDE gives me every time I try to open it. The runtime.dll is sitting in the bin folder as usual. |
| eikon: your sig tries to open a ftp site btw. |
| Yea, that would be mine. |
| Did you install to the default folder? Have you tried reinstalling? Do you have some unique software installed on your system that others don't?|
| Yes, all default settings. Reinstalled many times. I noticed that it works with the initial install but either 136 or 137 patch breaks it. Nothing special running... this is just a very basic 98 system.|
The IDE now opens with 136/137 but everything i compile crashes blitzcc
| Maybe B+ just doesn't work on 98. But I had something like this happen and I found that I had accidently deleted a file when looking through the folders. Thank god for recycle bin! Check if you have accidently deleted a file crucial for the prgm to run. Hope it helps.|
| There was in issue with 24 bit versions of the toolbars which are not compatible with windows98 included in one of the updates. I would try re-downloading 137 and patching the original working install. |
| Thanks but i've already reformatted and moved on to Win2k. B+ seems to be fine so far :) |
| Nobody seems to have noticed that the first error shown was from Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime library. |
Visual Studio does seem to intercept messages intended for other apps.
So, I suggest you try with the presence of Visual Studio.
