Crashing on Start-up 0.55.X
« on: April 11, 2012, 09:49:10 pm »
If the Blockade Runner indev (0.55.X) crashes on startup, please confirm the following first to help us diagnose the problem and resolve it once and for all!  Post here, e-mail us at support@zanmgt.com or PM my username.

Confirm:

Try the following:
  • Right-click BlockadeRunner.exe and run it with administrative privileges
  • Give the Blockade Runner folder read/write permissions
  • Add Blockade Runner to your firewall's exceptions

Report To Us(as many as you can):
  • The name of your videocard (Start > Dxdiag)
  • Version of Blockade Runner
  • Your version of Windows (Win7/XP, 32bit or 64bit)
  • Your processor type
  • The contents of log.txt in the Blockade Runner folder
  • The stack trace of the "Has stopped working" window
  • Did any previous version of BR run in the past?

If you happen to solve your crashing on start up let us know how you did it and we'll likely be able to reverse engineer where the problem started!

Crashed on clicking the .exe, Run as admin fixed that.


I have all perquisites installed
w28 has worked in the past (and .54.0 worked as-well)

Windows 7 64bit architecture
AMD Athlon 2 x3 440
I have no log.txt or cannot find it.

I am unsure as to what the stack trace is however I have this
Spoiler
Description:
  Stopped working

Problem signature:
  Problem Event Name:   CLR20r3
  Problem Signature 01:   blockaderunner.exe
  Problem Signature 02:   1.54.2.0
  Problem Signature 03:   4f862d74
  Problem Signature 04:   mscorlib
  Problem Signature 05:   2.0.0.0
  Problem Signature 06:   4a275af7

  Problem Signature 08:   15a
  Problem Signature 09:   System.UnauthorizedAccess

If the online privacy statement is not available, please read our privacy statement offline:
  C:\Windows\system32\en-US\erofflps.txt

Which makes me think that you have set the permissions of the .exe incorrectly. (thats my opinion)

I think I have a temporary fix-

Right Click .exe and select properties
Click Compatibility tab
Tick Privilege Level - Run this program as an administrator

this means whenever you select the exe it auto runs as admin.... maybe there is a way to force this on upon the first time a person uses the .exe?

@MrVorga

Try to extract the BlockadeRunner0.54.2.zip straight onto a drive like C:\ instead of Program Files or My Documents.  We believe this is a UAC issue with Vista/Win7 and are currently going through the long ardent process of giving Microsoft the info they need for BR to run without admin privileges.

Extracted it to C:\BlockadeRunner0.54.2

It still crashes upon clicking the .exe

Running as admin, or changing the privileges (as stated in previous post) still works

Still crashing with the latest build.

Just a thought, but I am using .net version 4. Should I uninstall and try 3.5?

You must have .NET 3.5 SP1, as .NET 4.0 alone will not work!  :-\

Version of Blockade Runner (0.54.3)
Your version of Windows: Windows 7 (32 bit)
Your processor type: Intel(r) Core Duo, T2450 2.00GHz

The contents of log.txt in the Blockade Runner folder
- GDM
- EM Loaded
- TM Initialized
- Resource Manager Initialized
- Loading Models
- Models Loaded

The stack trace of the "Has stopped working" window: no idea how to do this
Did any previous 0.54.X run in the past? just loaded this one
Requirement check program fails as well.

it looks like your blockade runner can't find xna 3.1
