Crash on start - difficult technical problem

Question

  • 0

The Microsoft manifest file is an XML file that helps define the Window's platform's relations to the CRT (the display) and other programs (paricularly the runtime dlls msvcr80.dll, msvcp80.dll, and msvcm80.dll), and is part of the .Net framework. SL has a similar manifest file in its directory. I uninstalled .Net, but got a similar result - SL froze before fully opening the window. Vista doesn't live without .Net, so I had to go back to a restore point. I reinstalled using the release candidate, but did not see the same error, and the program still freezes.

I would like to be part of the SL community, but this is a technical problem that I can't resolve.

Hello Dorian, welcome to Second Life

.. and launched. I got the window frame only. Froze (program only, not all desktop). Running on VISTA. 

Please have a look at these issues on pJIRA Will not load login screen (can not see it) & Transparent client window    Is that what you see ?

It could be the Windows Color & Appearance settings, in Control Panel > Preferences. Try changing to Windows Standard or Basic.

Thanks, Ella.

It was the last solution at the end of the many solutions: the program doesn't like the Windows Aero color settings and can't change them. I never would have guessed that. Incredible. Many thanks - I hope I meet a lot of friends like you.

- Dorian
