[SOLVED] Tutorial fail to launch
Hi everyone !

I installed Esenthel this afternoon, trying to see what this engine is capable of, and probably try to port my existing real time strategy game to it.

I started with the tutorial, but i can't launch any of them. Build is ok, at the launch time :
"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000007b)."
I try to move the binary to the main folder, try running as administrator. All my stuff are up to date (system, esenthel, driver).
Since i'm new with this engine, don't know why this is happening.

Can someone help ?

regards,
Max
Win7 ult x64

Build the x64 bit version, and not the 32-bit.

RE: Tutorial fail to launch
I'm currently building the x64bit version when getting this error. It work perfectly with the 32bit by the way. But why ?

----edit---

It only fail when using directx 10+ (directx 9 works fine in 32 and 64). I'm I supposed to install something else for directx 10 working ?
My current installed version of directx is 11 (looking through dxdiag)

Thanks for you Help

Hi,

When you have the project and tutorial opened, can you hit F8 to open it in Visual Studio.
Then select Debug configuration, and start with debugging.
If crash occurs, can you please attach the screen including location of the crash, including the callstack image?

What CPU/GPU do you have?

DX10+ build config works with both DX10 and DX11.

Thank you

Hello,

I was trying to do this, but can't build in visual studio
"Error MSB8006 The Platform for project 'Project.vcxproj' is invalid. Platform='Emscripten'. This error may also appear if some other project is trying to follow a project-to-project reference to this project, this project has been unloaded or is not included in the solution, and the referencing project does not build using the same or an equivalent Platform."
- all reference and external dependecies folder are empty

Hi,

In Visual Studio, you need to use the menu "Build / Configuration Manager"
Then at the top, change the options to "Debug DX10" and "x64"

I've highlighted this in Red for you.

RE: Tutorial fail to launch
Do you have all Windows Updates and Service Packs installed for your Windows 7?

I have Win7 too (on one of my computers) and it works ok with DX10+ 64.
But I have all the Windows Updates installed.

RE: Tutorial fail to launch
Hi,

I have a couple ideas about what could go wrong.

Did you ever manually try copying some DLL files to your system folder?
For example a "d3dcompiler_47.dll"?
If you've ever done that, and copied it incorrectly (for example 32 bit DLL to 64bit expected location), then you might be getting this problem.

Please see this post:
http://www.esenthel.com/forum/showthread...1#pid52751
Where you can find correct DLL's, to be extracted to your Windows folder.
This is because Windows 7 does not come with the "d3dcompiler_47.dll" dll, and it needs to be present. Windows 8 and newer have it.

If this won't help, then you might check these links:
http://steamcommunity.com/app/265550/dis...4192086125
https://answers.unrealengine.com/questio...0007b.html

Overall, this looks like some of your system DLL's are incorrect.

Days ago I had to copy some dll for a similar problem, it works fine until today and your engine. The first link works great, i can run everything.

Time to get into esenthel, thanks for your help grin
