Problem with installing

I'm moving this discussion over to the forums so its a little easier to read and write

I just simply says Application cannot be started, please contect your vendor. That is the only info your app is telling me. Don't get me wrong you app is great was very helpful on Windows 8, but windows ever moves on. I'm not on a Preview build of Windows 10 by the way. I'am Windows 10 home, 32-bit. Just hope there is a fix soon, I believe the problem occurs when downloading packages from server, but then ever the faq ones don't work. it's on the "Launching Application" popup that appear just after you click the setup executable.

Re: Problem with installing

I can reassure you that the problem is not windows 10 itself. Some other program required by alt1 is not installed properly or corrupted on your computer.

A common problem is a corrupted click-once cache. You can reset it manually by following these steps

  1. Press the windows button on your keyboard and 'R' at the same time, this will show a quick run window.

  2. Paste this line and press enter. rundll32 %windir%\system32\dfshim.dll CleanOnlineAppCache

This should clear the cache and allow you to run the application.

Re: Problem with installing

Just tried what you have posted, but with no luck - same problem still occurs. By any chance, what programs are required by application again? just so I can manually make sure they are all there or not.

P.S I appreciate the help

Re: Problem with installing

The error is happening outside of Alt1 code. It is likely to be caused by a problem with your .NET installation. Alt1 requires .NET framework 4.5 or higher. You can try to (re)install it.

The manual install should also bypass this problem, however you wont get updates automatically. Make sure to install the latest (1.1.2) version.

Re: Problem with installing

Manual install simply won't launch the program.

I will try and re-install .Net Framework and get back to you on the results.

Re: Problem with installing

I really don't know why this is happening. Can you make sure you extracted all the files from the zip and that no antivirus is messing around with the files? AVG antivirus likes to delete random files.

Re: Problem with installing

Confirmed. All files were extracted not using avg personally, but I have tried the disabling antivirus and installing but to no avail. Granted I have managed to successfully install this on my laptop (which has the same windows 10 home) and it's completely fine thus far. But it seems to reject my desktop computer (one i primarily use for gaming).

So It's definitely confirmed I is a problem my end and not your end (which I was afraid of lol...), when you asked me to enter that command before it didn't work so I had to clear things manually, but that didn't seem to resolve anything.

Anyways I appreciate the help you have given me, and thank you for such an awesome program!! All is not lost, If I need help with me clues - just temporarily switch to me laptop tongue

Re: Problem with installing

This same error was happening to me, telling me the application cannot be started. A lot of antivirus softwares delete files without telling you so I temporarily disabled mine and the install worked fine. Hopefully this helps.
