Launchbox Fails to load

Recommended Posts

Having a weird issue after installing the 10.1 update. After installing the 10.1 update, both launchbox and bigbox fail to load for me. The splash screen appears and loads up all the configs/caches, but then after it closes, the program never opens. There is no error message and there is nothing in the Logs folder at all. It just fails to load entirely. I've tried rolling back to an earlier version of the settings.xml's, re-installed the 10.1 update in case it was corrupt, and tried deleting any non-essential folders like CefSharp. Still no joy. What's even weirder is I tried placing a clean install of 10.1 elsewhere on my system and it also fails to load in the same manner. Anything changed in 10.1 that might cause this?

Windows 10... just checked the install on another PC and it works fine. I did update to the latest Nvidia driver on this PC and haven't on the other, as well as having taken this months windows update here and not there... any chance of an incompatibility there? Or am i tilting at windmills?

So on the pc not working you are on Windows update with 1903? Are you also running anything like MSI Afterburner/Riva Tuner/Corsair iCUE software?

Yes, I am on the 1903 update on this PC and whatever was before that on the other one. As for programs, all of those listed are running on the one not working. Everything but iCue is also running on the one that is working. Now for the part where it gets weird. Killing iCue did nothing, but killing riva does in fact allow the interface to load (Overlays are such troublemakers!). But what is weird is that it runs on the other machine with the Riva running... some quirk of the combination of Riva and the newest Nvidia driver perhaps?

Thanks btw. This isn't the first time Riva has been a hassle, i think that's goign to be added to my standard debug mental log now (try restarting it, make sure everything is updated, kill riva) lol

I had the same issue last week when i updated windows, it was also riva in my case, i just added a exception in riva to not monitor Lanchbox and Bigbox and its fine now. Been using Afterburner/Riva for years with no issues with Launchbox, but that last Windows update effected it somehow.

We had another member who reverted back to pre 1903 and things went back to normal.

Oh cool, didn't even realize this was possible. Will definitely do that (both for launchbox and other things i already kill riva before launching). 💯

Just add the .exe and set it to "None".
