Windows 7/Vista/XP installation issues resolved.
« on: March 17, 2010, 10:35:53 AM »
While it has been awhile since I have installed the emulator on a fresh computer, I decided to try it on a fresh Win7 install.
The notes outlining pertain to ALL installations.
Since late December, I lost one of my hosts due to drive failure, and didn't remember that the emulator downloaded an overlay from that host, which should have been pointed to the CINE server instead. This file is usually requested when it doesn't exist in the 'main' sub-directory, such as a fresh install.

After successful installation, and manually replacing the two files from the June '09 update, take this attached file "satradoverlay.png" and place it into C:\wsxl\main\
Ofcourse, after that, set your ID, then run the emulator.
While Vista seems to be the most problematic OS to work around with security, Win7 was a breeze, with no "run as administrator" requirements.
Please leave your notes below saying if this helped.

If you can, please take a picture of the emulator when that message appears, trying to capture the message and
the loading text inside the emulator itself. Also, what is your ID?
Thanks

Same thing here.  Followed the newly posted Win7 setup procedure and it launched for the first time yesterday.  It worked flawlessly yesterday and most of today.  I fire up it now and I get the exact same error "Error: Access violation at 0x004025AC (tried to write to 0x004025AC), program terminated."   This maybe the exact error that prevented me from ever being able to run it back in January I think until I was randomly browsing the forums the other day and saw the new instructions.  Martin tossed me a new key the other night and I gave it shot and it launched.  Between then and now nothing has changed hardware, software, or OS settings-wise.  I was pretty glad to just see it in action for the first time although short lived.  These things happen and it's no biggie, but from what I was able to see I just wanted to say very impressive emulator and keep at it.  The latest videos you posted Brian showing off things to come are also quite impressive (font size revision and alert LDL ticker).  Anyway I think I'll just wait out for the next version and try again then.  Take care and best regards.
