WMC V8.8.5 wont start

#1

Post by M29XNT » Mon May 06, 2024 12:41 pm

hello everyone, im pretty new to the fourms and i wanted to use wmc on Windows 10 22h2 (OS BUILD:19045.4291), so i downloaded version 8.8.5 via a youtube video, did the installation and when i tried to start it up, it just did nothing.
i checked task manager and the tray application launched for around 2-3 seconds and closed.
Please help, I've reinstalled it numerous times and it still doesn't work :cry:

Did you get this to work ? I’m having a similar problem.

Anything interesting in the event viewer?

8.8.5 should work fine: I just installed it on two new machines (using the latest Windows 10 22H2 ISO) and it's working like a charm.

Ok I have no idea what is causing this. I’m going to try a “clean boot” which is what I think they used to call booting into safe mode. If that doesn’t work I’m going to do a clean install.

I took a look at the event viewer. Shows a repeated application error and a .net runtime error. Not sure what that means

It's a generic log so not something that can be guessed just by looking at the message. Don't you have a .NET runtime error that is logged at the same time?

This looks like an issue with SQL CE. Check if the following .dlls are present in your System32 folder:

To exclude a registry issue, try to re-apply the RestoreSqlCe.reg file from the WMC 8.8.5 package (under bin).
