Program won't start...

Post by hilokawika » 31 Oct 2012 21:29

Hi,
When I try to start the program using the desktop icon I get a little error message box with the message "an error has occurred in the application". When I try to send a bug message, the system locks up after the first 1/3 of the process. If I don't send the bug message then I can close the program but still don't know what went wrong since the "show bug report" button only returns the error message box...

I'm running a Dell inspiron 536 PC and Vista.

Well, since you are running Vista I suspect it's a Data Execution Prevention (DEP) issue. Try to add the program to the exception list or turn off DEP.

Putting the TextEd.exe file on the DEP exception listing did the trick. :D
