Problems launching on Windows 7

Post by jhb4jgh464 » Wed May 01, 2019 3:01 pm

What I tried:
1. Installed mono for Windows version: mono-5.20.1.19-x64-0
2. Downloaded OPENRA AppImage
3. Changed the AppImage to runnable from the properties.
4. Changed mono.exe properties to "run as admin". (Tried both admin and non-admin)
5. Opened the appimage with "mono.exe"

Appimage crash instantly. Nothing is saved in the logs folder. In fact there isn't even a folder for OpenRa data in "C:\Users\{my_User_name_here}\Documents". I checked anti-virus logs, couldn't find anything about resolved security issues either.

OS Windows 7 x64
HP Laptop

EDIT: I saw someone else had problems launching on github, they had to enable dwm.exe. I have it running as well, but still not launching.

Is there a reason you are not using the windows installers?

The AppImage files are for Linux, they will not work under Windows.

Oh, my bad. I had No-scipt enabled so I had all the files visible on the page (downloaded the wrong file by accident). It starts up now. Thanks!
