Vvvv 32 bit doesn't start anymore Windows 7


Since a couple of days the 32bit versions of vvvv cannot start on my computer anymore, 64bit versions works fine. When i start vvvv the start window opens but then nothing happens anymore, when i click the window windows tells me that vvvv is not reacting. This is with all vvvv 32-bit versions i have(currently beta 28.1, 29, 29.2 and alpha 29.3). I also tried to start vvvv from diffrent places on my disk and also from my usbstick but nothing seems to work. What is really strange about the whole thing is that one week before i haven’t had this problem at all.
I have run vvvv with command line /logstartup which tells me something like this:

Best and thank you


Did you install any new software between it working and not working?

See this thread:

@beyon: can you confirm that latest alpha fixes your problem with pd installed as i pointed out in that thread you mentioned?

Problem here is really related to this thread
After i renamed the the freeframe folder to “_freeframes”, everything works fine now! I installed pd extended some days ago so this seems to be the issue with the whole thing. Thanks a lot for the quick response.

@morast: have you really tried this with lastest alpha? i actually had a fix in there for this pd-installer-caused problem.

I have same problem and renaming /lib/nodes/freeframe worked for me

Think it was installing pd-extended that seems to be the issue i think

@joreg: Latest Alpha works great! Still got pd- extended installed and alpha29.3 - 29f63b88b2 runs smoothly without changing anything in the file directory! Great!
