I’ve today got my new laptop through the post which is obviously awesome.
Literally the first thing I’ve done is install Vvvv but it keeps crashing on startup.
I’ve installed all the .Net, DirectX and C++ stuff and it should be working.
I load Vvvv, but the little grey vvvv box (start box before a clean patch) hangs.
1ce or twice it’s I’ve actually got vvvv loaded, but the rest of the time is just hangs on the little loading box at the start and I’ve no idea why. It’s not like there’s anything else at all installed on this computer at the moment.
Wow - that’s odd. Especially on a brand new machine… Can you give us some specs? What kind of laptop do you have and what vvvversion are you trying to run? And I guess you ran the crack / setup.exe with admin rights? You can also look at the troubleshooting page. Running the /logstartup might help the devvvvs to figure out what’s going on if the problem persists.
It’s not a downgrade. It was built fresh with only Windows 7 on it; I have the Win 7 disk, so can reinstall if needed. However this is quite literally the first time I’ve ever turned it on since it’s first install last week at the shop it was put together at (PC Specialist custom build).
I googled the 217 Runtime error. It looks like it could be something to do with antivirus; I didn’t find any real clear answers on it (maybe my googleing isn’t up to scratch) but the general gist seemed to be issues with antivirus or a clogged registry; and I highly doubt that I’ve a clogged registry at the moment.
I have disabled the default (Bullgard) antivirus that came with the machine, but the issue persists.
It’s only a trial antivirus, so I may uninstall it and see if that helps any.
It’s something like 2014.05.13-19.00.00**.log**.
And, aehm, are you sure you have installed DX9, and not just unpacked the exe? In case you can download again, or if you find the dir where extracted files are you should double click on DXSETUP.exe
