#13 Crashes on Startup


I just downloaded Morse Code Tools v2.45 and M/S DirectX. My O/S is M/S XP w/Svc Pack 3. I get the same Fatal Error on both MorseKeyer.exe & MorseNews.exe - "Fatal Error - CLR error: 8/0004005 - The program will now terminate."
Being an old Linux hand, I'm not too familiar with M/S Windows, so I'm probably doing something wrong - but have no clue what that might be.

    I don't know where to start. Usually Windows XP SP3 has DirectX. Are you using a real XP system or one running in something like VirtualBox? It would not surprise me if DirectX doesn't run in VirtualBox etc.

    I would say to re-install the .NET Framework 3.5 (which is the "CLR" the Common Language Runtime). Is your XP up to date on MS maintenance updates (beyond SP3)? I can't repro your problem of course :-)

    Almost certainly the wrong .NET runtime (or no .NET runtime). Download and install .NET 3.5 and try it. No one else is reporting this, therefore I am closing this before 3.1 as "not a bug".
