mpide not loading in windows

Postby supermac » Tue Feb 14, 2012 3:49 am

MPIDE is not opening on my windows 7 machine. I see the splash screen and then nothing....

I downloaded the latest build and overwrote my install directory and it did not fix the issue. I even tried erasing the entire ide directory, then reinstalling it.

I have arduino 1.0 installed on the same computer, as well as leaf labs ide and they seem to still work.

I wonder if there is something with my library settings that is causing a problem?

Help! I am dead in the water.

I'm a Linux guy but this should help with Windows too: Try starting it from a command line window and look for error messages.

I've just found the same problem trying to install the latest version on my Win7 Netbook. I've tried several instals, and re-downloading the installation files with no luck. Just tried running from a command promt as recommended to try and got the same results - the app apparently starts, with the start screen showing for a few seconds with hard disk activity, then nothing. The previous version of MPIDE ran successfully on the machine.

The latest version was also installed on my main Win7 PC at the same time and it works OK.

Just tried the previous version again and now it doesn't work any more - comes up with an error message about twenty seconds after trying to start it. :!:

I did have V1.6.0-29 loaded and it wouldn't run under that. I then installed the latest V1.6.0-31 with the same results. I am running V1.6 since I also have MPLABX on the machine.

Where did you install it? In the past I had problems with other IDEs if I installed too far down in the name space, like my Desktop. So I install it in a root directory, like:
C:\mpide-0023-windows-20111221

Also I don't know if it is needed or not, is your account an Administrator account on your Win 7 machine?

I had it installed in d:\chipkit/. I tried it in the C:/ root and the D:/ root, but just the same results as before

My normal account is as an administrator.

Likewise, I've tried a lot of things on my Netbook and still cant get MPIDE to run. One thing I did note was when trying to run the previous version - 20110822. This version did run previous to trying the newer version but now does not run. When I try to start it, the splash screen shows for about thirty seconds then a dialogue box appears with the heading "launch4j" and the message "An error occurred while starting this application".
