.NET Core didn't install correctly

This just started happening for me too....Windows Update just installed a security update to .NET Core (to 3.1.11) ... I suspect this is the cause of the launch failing.  Going to attempt installing an older version and will report back.

Reverting to .NET Core 3.1.9 did not resolve the issue.

Also received a cumulative windows update when the failure started.

Is there a way to start launchbox with additional logging?   Some kind of debug mode?  There are currently no logs in the log folder.

If you cant get into Launchbox to turn on logging go to the Launchbox/Data folder and open the settings.xml and find the DebugLog section and change false to true and save.

Just figured that out and unfortunately that provides no additional logging during this startup failure

Could you open Event Viewer then on right navigate to Windows Logs > Application and tell me if you see any failures in there related to LaunchBox?

Found two errors that occur during each failed startup:

Reinstall fixed the issue.  That exception is related to a resource not being found.  I do not install Launchbox in the default location.  I suspect something reset or removed a file location in the registry and then it could not be found in the default location.

The launchbox program prompted me to update to version  11.9 today. Clicked to update and as the update started, i was prompted to instal the windows desktop runtime-3.1.11-win-64. Downloaded and clicked to install and runtime installed. Tried to load Launchbox and instead of loading, i got the prompt to say that the runtime program needed to be installed and this kept on happening no matter how many times i tried launching, Launchbox.

I tried several suggestions that were made for an earlier Launchbox and had no joy.

After several hours, i decided to try several things of my own ideas and i finaly came up with going to the update folder in the Launchbox directory and found the downloaded update 11.9. Ran the install from there and bingo. Launchbox is now working again. Have booted it several times and loads without problem.

Thought this may be of help to someone else.

Thanks for a great program.

Cool. One down, one more to go. @EddieNash were you able to get your install up and running?

Nope. I just figured out how to turn debug on and got the following log:

It still won't open. I don't know what to do anymore and I don't want to re-install windows. It's too much of a hassle. Does anyone have any idea how to make it open?

I would ensure that you have .NET Core runtime installed (noticed you mentioned Framework which we are no longer on). Also look and see if you have any logs in the Logs folder that could help us figure out what may be going on. Typically when I've seen LaunchBox do this for new users it is one of the following issues:

.NET Core didn't install correctly

Drive permissions are messed up

Video driver issues

Antivirus shutting down/interfering with the process

I did it!!! I finally did it!!! After trying a lot of things, I finally did it! It finally opened after I uninstalled my GPU's driver and re-installed it again. That did the trick. Thank you so much for the help!

Hello, good afternoon. I have already read the entire forum, I have tried all the possible solutions, deactivating the antivirus, uninstalling programs, drivers and reinstalling them. I have also tried to install it on other units, updating, downloading other versions and nothing works. When I open the program nothing happens, I went to the task manager and the process appears, it stays open for about 30 seconds and its memory use increases and then disappears. If you could help me please, I have tried everything and really want to use this program. Thank you

What version are you installing? You're saying you've tried it on multiple computers?

Usually the issue here is with Norton. Do you happen to have Norton installed on your machines?

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm not sure why my Launchbox won't launch but was wondering if someone can help.  Here is my log.  Basically, I click on exe and the load screen starts and immediately disappears.
