I use windows 7 x64 and RSS Bandit v18.104.22.1682
i click on the program icon, and nothing happens
i looked into process explorer, RSS bandit starts, second later the process
Is this a upgrade installation (newer version of RSS Bandit installed over an
yet existing older one)?
Did you use a upgraded Windows 7 (e.g. from Vista) or a "fresh" installation?
What kind of Windows 7 (Home, ...)?
Can you please check these things on your machine:
1. Is there a folder (created) like this: C:\Users\<YOUR_WINDOWS_ACCOUNT>\AppData\Local\RssBandit ?
2. Is there a folder (created) like this: C:\Users\<YOUR_WINDOWS_ACCOUNT>\AppData\Roaming\RssBandit?
3. Did you get a firewall warning notice at startup (about to allow access of our update-info web service)?
Thanks for reporting that issue!
Hopefully you have installed the .NET framework 3.5 (full, see also http://ms
dn.microsoft.com/netframework/ ) as
mentioned at http://rssbandit.org/download/rss-bandit-download/
If not, please install it (you can take it from http://www.microsoft.com/down
thanks for reply
sorry for incomplete info
There are also file(s) within the folder(s)?
Any entry in the application event log (windows event log)?
I have here the same config (Dell Laptop, Win7 Ultimate 64 bit) and it runs
yes, there are files
there are no entries in windows event log regarding RSS Bandit
i will try to reinstall (omg, again) and post here
ok, i've done it
and i found trace.log file in 'Roaming' folder (mentioned above)

I don't understand. Why there should be '.settings2.xml' in 'Roaming' folder,
when i installed it again? Shouldn't RSS Bandit create it itself?
Yes, that log output is just reported for debugging and you can ignore that.
No other entries in the .log?
OK; lets go on step by step:
Do you have a file named "feedsources.xml" and possibly a
"DirectAccess.xxxxx.subscription" file in your roaming\RssBandit folder? If
so, they are empty?
Same thing happening to me. Rssbandit started once. When I exited, now it
won't restart. Same conditions as what is listed in this post. Is there a
Is any of the files above there, but empty (no content)?
Same issue here ... also Win7 x64. But it worked on a different Win7 x64 box
I have tried several earlier versions and none worked. Trace.log is created
Misteriously it worked one day in the very same computer that was previously
not working (no Windows reinstallation or similar, maybe a Windows Update
patch) and configured Google Reader synchronization and start working with it.
Now it has stopped working again, no error, just launches the process and
I do have feedsources.xml and DirectAccess.XXXXX.subscription files, neither
of those empty.
i met the same question
