Impossible to launch Nesmaker

Post by Kitsune » Thu Aug 09, 2018 7:29 am

Hello everybody.

I have a simple problem with nesmaker : I can't launch it. I have the latest version (4.0) but when I double click on the exe, it does...nothing.
I can't open it or launch it in command line.

I am on windows 10.
On my laptop I can use nesmaker, it's strange as I am also on Windows 10 on this one.

Can you help please ?

There is a prerequisite you need to make sure you have installed which is the .net framework 4.5 I believe. can probably use newer like 4.7 or up as I have Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 installed.

Thanks Mihoshi20, but I've checked and Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 is installed on my PC.
In fact, when I try to launch Nesmaker, I can see the window of Nesmaker tries to open in windows taskbar, but it's empty and close after 3-5 seconds. I never have any window of Nesmaker on my screen.

I too have the same issue as Kitsune and also have the mentioned .NET framework. windows 10 32-bit. I didn't try it on another platform because I forget how may PC's I'm allowed to use my license on without issues so the Win 10 box is my main one I tried.

[EDIT - Adding Fault info]
Application: NESMaker_4_0_0.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

Might be a problem with 32bit Windows...

Nope, my laptop works with windows 10 32bits ;)

I precise I can launch nesmaker on this one but I don't activate it as I am not sure I will be able to use it on my desk PC after that. But anyway, the process I can see shows nesmaker launch correctly.

Hmm, I wonder if the software was tested against 32-bit systems. I didn't even know Windows 10 came in 32-bit. I wish I had the time to experiment with this now. Loading NESmaker in a 32-bit Win7 virtual machine and see what happens. I'll have to try it tonight and see what happens.

Microsoft says it's either a problem with 32bit support of the DLL, or a wrong version of Framework .NET installed :

So if you're sure it works on Windows 32-bit, try to update the framework .NET :

I never understood why anyone uses .Net framework. If you code in C, ASM, or even PureBasic. No runtimes are needed. I guess it's all in what you know. Just a side note. It doesn't run on Windows XP either. It's the platform I use to do all my programming (PureBasic), just so I know it will run on everyone's computer.

here are the news, perhaps it'll help to fix Nesmaker :

1* My pc works with windows 10 - 32 bits. Nesmaker doesn't launch on it.
2* I remove microsoft network on it and reinstall it. It's the 4.7 version.
3* Nesmaker doesn't launch.

4* My Laptop works with windows 10 -32 bits. Nesmaker launch on it. The microsoft network version is the 4.7.
