Crash after program start (Windows)

Vega Strike crashes right after I start it.

It is a fresh installation and I installed the newest graphics driver. There is no folder named HOME\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\VegaStrike, therefore I could not find stdout/stderr. I also cannot change any setting as the setup program crashes when I try to use its dropdown menus.

I'm using a 64bit Win7 with a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650. I installed the newest graphics driver.

I don't think it is any help, but here is the crash report Windows generates:

Did you try launching it as administrator?

Some versions have a bug that requires administrator rights (it tries to save an updated config on admin-only folders). I'm not sure if the download has it fixed, or only SVN. You can also try the binary in SVN.

It is more likely that it is trying to write into the \program files\vegastrike directory which windows does not allow anymore. If that is the case the problem has been fixed in svn but not updated elsewhere. The latest binary in svn should fix this issue. Give that one a try and let us know if you are still having crash issues.

The not svn (stable?) version works fine with admin rights. But I don't want to do all the work with the latest (unstable?) version from svn. Thanks for your help.

It's not that unstable :) been running the svn version for years on both sides of of the OS divide what he was suggesting is to just get the svn windows exe to use instead of the one in the download.

Enjoy the Choice :)

yeah, svn is stable enough and usually includes the latest tweaks and bug fixes. If you want bleeding edge best to check out one of the branches that get worked on from time to time.
