#181 "Errors occurred" launching Juice


This is occurring on Windows 7 x64.

Juice will run when launched from the installer and operate as expected but once it is shut down, it will never restart. It shows the splash screen and then displays the following message.

"Errors occurred

See the logfile 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Juice\Juice.exe.log' for details"

The file referenced is not created unless you run the application with Administrator rights.

The file contents are as follows.

    I assume you're running version 2.2.1 which is not compatible with Win7.
    Or if to put it in other words, there was no Windows 7 when version 2.2.1 was released :-)
    There is a test version for 2.2.3 which runs on Windows 7, but it's far from benig stable and bug free. Yet I guess it might be better then a version that doesn't run at all.

    Ah, that might explain it then. I'll check out 2.2.3, thanks.

    2.2.1 works perfectly on Windows 7 but only the one time immediately following re/installation. :)

    Run it in compatibility mode with XP SP3 and it will launch.

    This was the exact problem that I had! Also Win 7 x64 here. Thanks for the detailed description. Anonymous's suggestion to use XP compatibility mode worked, though in my case Windows "autodetected" that Win XP SP2 was the "right" mode. Also we now get a UAE window each time we start -- but that's much better than not starting at all.
