LaunchBox no Longer Opens

9 posts in this topic

7.11 beta 5

 

After the last update LaunchBox either crashes when opening or nothing happens.  During the last udpate launch box had me install something besides the normal update file.  I'm stuck as to what to do.   I'm not sure if there is a log somewhere i can post.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks

The last update installed a new .NET, 4.7 I believe.

I would recommend either redownloading the latest official build and install that over top or go into your Launchbox\updates folder and run one the previous versions of the installers in there.

Did you have any plugins installed and set to run?

So I went to the update folder, downloaded beta 3 and everything loads up again.  Do you think I should just skip the beta 5 build and update the next release?  What do you think is causing the crash?

 

Thanks again for your help.

No idea what could be causing the issue but I have a test install of LB and it updated fine for me.

If it was the .Net upgrade, then waiting for the official probably wont fix that, but there's no real easy way of knowing. I'll tag @Jason Carr, because he could ask you specifically about something that changed. Did you go from Beta 4 to Beta 5, or something previous?

I went from beta 4 to beta 5.  I'm always playing with the system so i don't miss anything.  On a good note I'm on beta 5 now and everything is working.  After reverting to beta 3, when i opened bigbox it went straight into the  installer and made me install the newest version.    I'm not sure what the problem was really.  I'm on windows 10 with the new creators update.  I deleted all the C++ and reinstalled.  That said it was still crashing after I did that.  It wasn't till I reverted to beta 3 and bigbox installed the newest version.  Maybe just a glitch in the initial update that just needed to be reinstalled on my end.

I had the same issue with LB crashing after updating to beta 5. I just installed the official release, then let it install beta 5 again, and everything worked.

Yea, it's very possible there was just a corruption during install or download.
