Version 0.98 not working for me
« on: November 04, 2014, 12:14:29 am »

Hello, I am on Windows 7 64 bit System , and I have a Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 graphics card.

When I try to run Anim8or nothing happens, no window,error,etc pops up. Anyone know whats up? The previous version works just fine , So i don't understand whats wrong with the new version.

Right-click Anim8or.exe and go to Properties, then the Compatibility tab. Try setting the compatibility to Windows XP (Service Pack 3).

Personally I've noticed that my antivirus (avast) delayed the startup of Anim8or by several seconds for me. Try disabling yours and starting it. Also make sure you're not running it directly from within the .zip file.

 Myself and at least 1 other are having this same problem with win7, although i'm using 32bit. I also have nvidia graphics card. (GeForce 7800GT).
 Have you tried build 1103? That works for us, but none of the later progress updates. They do exactly as you say. A few spins of the 'doing something' wheel and thats it. Although, if you look at your running processess, you'll probably see that anim8or is listed as running, and if you ignore that, and try again, anim8or says that autosave wont work because there is already an anim8or running.
 So, it does seem to open, but nothing is showing on the desktop.
 There is some discussion about this here recently on the forum, (i'll try find a link), where steve describes possible 'windows open gl problems', but as far as i remember, it hasn't really made a difference to builds AFTER 1103.
 ?? so... you're not the only one with this prob. 

 Could you try build 1103 and let us know if that one will work on your win7?


EDIT: Heres that link.

 Upon reading it again, it might be helpfull.  Good luck.

Dont know What build 1103 is

Go to the forums 'Ongoing Anim8or Developement' Category.

http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php/board,7.0.html

Then go to page 1 of "Current Development Release' thread.
 At the bottom of the first post by Steve , you'll see a list of downloadable Anim8or 'drops'.(previous releases of developement updates.  Anim8or .exe's)  .
 You should see there what i mean by build '1103'
 Will be interesting to see whether you are ok with all previous releases up to and including 1103, and whether you can run any later releases than 1103.
 Good luck.

 Ok. Make sure you've done what Raxx said. Set compatability mode to windows xp service pack 3.
(please try again if you didnt do that)
I don't think its an anti-virus thing, as my work/hobby pc doesn't go on line and i have no anti virus software installed.
 I probly wont be able to help you much here, as i still have a similar problem myself.
 Could you try some earlier updates, pre-1103.
 Try 1103 again if you didn't set compatability mode, then try 1101, 1097, 1088, 1086 and so on till you get to a working version. (set compatability mode in each 1 as you go)
 I'm sort've surprised 1103 didnt work. (was hopeing it would)
 Please let us know how you go. Any info might help in working out whats going on.
 Thanks

 Edit: Could you check if it is showing in the processess as 'running'? (after a failed start)
 Ctrl - Alt - delete -> Task Manager -> Processes.
 thanks

What's really strange is getting newer versions to run under the older Win XP; I see it displayed in the task manager, but it never opens up the application itself like 0.98 normally does. I hope the issue can be resolved as I plan on using XP until I get a newer PC.

I'm looking into this. There are a lot of moving parts. It would help if everyone can post the About->SystemInfo data as well. You can post it using older versions of Anim8or, of course.

 Thanks Steve
 Possibly more info here than you need, (possibly not enough). hopefully not confusing.

 Info from build 1103 and build 1097 on Windows 7. (working)
OS Version Windows 7 (6.1) Build 7600
Compatability set to Win xp Service Pack 3.
(When Checkbox in Compatability mode is not ticked, it reverts to:
OS Version Windows 7 (6.1) Build 7600)


Build 1103:
OpenGL Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL Renderer: GeForce 7800 GT/PCI/SSE2
OpenGL Version: 2.0.0
OS Version: Windows XP Service pack 3 (5.1) Build 2600

Build 1097:
OpenGL Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL Renderer: GeForce 7800 GT/PCI/SSE2
OpenGL Version: 2.0.0
OS Version: Windows XP Service pack 3 (5.1) Build 2600

 Both these builds, and all pre 1103, (inclusive) seem to work in all compatability modes, 95, 98, NT, 2000, vista etc...

 When i get to the next build, 1112, and onwards.
 If set to compatability for Win Xp SP3, the 'user account control' dialog pops up with the "do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?"
 I click yes, the busy wheel turns for a few seconds, and then nothing.
Anim8or shows in the processes as running.
 If i don't put a tick in the compatability mode checkbox, the 'user account control' dialog does not open.The busy wheel turns for a few seconds, and then nothing. Anim8or shows in the processes as running.

 For me, all versions are working under windows XP, with all compatability modes.

 System info from XP, running anim8or 1122, with no compatability mode set:
OpenGL Vendor: Microsoft Corporation
OpenGL Renderer: GDI Generic
OpenGL Version: 1.1.0
 OS Version: Windows xp, service pack 3 (5.1) build 2600

 Heres hopeing some of this info is helpfull

johnar: Yes, that's useful. I made some changes in cl-1107 that might be the cause. At least that's what appear to be the most likely changes. Can you try 1106 and 1107 and see how they behave? If 1106 works and 1107 doesn't it will save me a bunch of hunting through other chang lists!

There are some bugs in them so please don't distribute them without a warning.
