Can't run in XP
« on: January 24, 2010, 23:51:01 »
After installing the software and double clicking the app, nothing happens. It doesn't run. The app doesn't show in task manager. It runs in Windows 7.

does it say something (like messageboxes with error), does Windows event log have errors with Similarity (ie. can't load some dll) ?

FYI, I have XP service pack 3 and it works fine for me.  I'm using 1.1.0 and I haven't used any previous versions, so maybe this was fixed, but thought I'd throw that in this forum.

1.3.1 ran just fine in Windows XP SP3, but since I updated to 1.3.2 and 1.3.3, it crashes at every startup (screenshot: i50(dot)tinypic(dot)com/258z1tz.jpg). Still working fine in Windows 7 though.
