Arrgh! I thought that 1107 was the one that broke everything :(  This still helps because it rules a couple of things.  I'll keep looking ...

 Oops. Sorry for the over-excitement. After reading your post more carefully i now realise that having them both opening wasn't exactly the outcome you were hopeing for.

 Good luck Steve May the force be with you

 Open up a version that works for you. When its open, go to Ábout -> system info, and copy what it says there, and post it here.

It would help if everyone can post the About->SystemInfo data as well. You can post it using older versions of Anim8or, of course.

I ran Dependency Walker on mine, and it came up with a few errors. Perhaps if johnar and vekenti run it on the latest versions, it'll help pinpoint the issue.

This information is helpful but I still haven't found a smoking gun. I working on some diagnostics to add to Anim8or to make this problem easier to figure out.

Raxx: can you add which which versions you've tried work? Or do they all work?

Everything works on my computer in XP compatibility mode and normally. It's running Windows 7 64-bit build 7601 [Service Pack 1].

On a related note, here's an interesting free tool that give a ton of information about your computer and it's graphics capabilities.

Ah, sorry. Latest version, build 1124. 1106, 1107, and the official .98 release all work for me as well.

I ran depedancy walker and have attached the resulting .dwi files. One for build 1103, (working) and one for build 1112.(not working).
 Thanks for the link Raxx.
(zip file attached)

I ran The GPU caps viewer. Can see no way of actually passing on the results from this, but did notice i'm running windows7 with no service packs.
Please let me know if there's anything else i can do to help.It seems that there might be only a couple of us with this problem. If so, i sure hope its not just some system problem at this end, and
Anim8or itself is actually all behaving properly.
 I know you've got plenty other Anim8or things that you're just itching to get in to, , and wouldn't want you wasting time on something that is essentially our own simple fault at this end.
 I do have 'nView Desktop Manager' running, but have tried various settings and also disabled. Still no joy from any Build later than 1103.

Thanks for the info, Raxx. And johnar, Anim8or isn't of much use if people can't run it. I'll figure this out.

Sorry,if I meddle here.

If you have an active firewall,you might want to try this:

Some firewalls have a program control feature.
They check if a starting program is on a safe list
they build and block it if it's not.
To check if it's the case,make sure all anim8or processes are dead in the task manager.The easiest way is to restart your PC.
Kill your firewall,cross your fingers and start  anim8or.
To stay totally safe,you may want to disconnect your
internet link.
Since it's quite easy to do,I think it's worth a try.

  Good thought tho.  Cheers

I posted a new build with a command line option that should help me find the cause(s) of these failures. If you are having problems running Anim8or please try this new option. For more details see:

  Build 1127 works for me.

  No compatability mode set -> Opens normally. Windows 7 (6.1) build 7600
Compatability Xp service pack 3 Mode opens normally as well.

(OpenGL Renderer: GeForce 7800 GT/PCI/SSE2
OpenGL Version: 2.0.0)

 Awesome Steve
 All good here now. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
