hi

A couple of questions:

What OS are you using?
Do you have a Firewall?
If yes, what Firewall do you have?
Do other programs work?
Try checking your stick for file system errors.

Or maybe the firewall is blocking it.

tested on xp/vista yes,

tested on xp/vista
yes, firewall doesn't do something stupid Blum
I can start it by invoking the batch file in the app/assaultcube directory
no errors
yep much programs are running in the meantime, shutting them down doesn't help Sad

hm

weird.

You shouldn't be starting it using the batch file as this will make it save its settings on your local machine.

Unfortunately, I am pretty lost here as to what may be causing the issue. We have lots of people who use it successfully on Windows.
Is there anything special with your machine? Or your graphics (card, screen or resolution)?

But if it runs if you run the batch file your graphics aren't the problem Sad

Just tested myself as I use PFA, but it launched just fine for me.

Bad file association?

Maybe you have an obscure or nonsense file association like associating DOS batch files with GIMP or something like that Pardon

Associating batch files with GIMP, that was a good one. Blum

lol, Haven't got batch with gimp associated XD but with something else
removed that association but still, it isn't working.
I have this vbs script running:

Dim ws 
Set ws = WScript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") 
ws.Run("PortableFileAssociator.exe" & " " & "add_gui") 
set service = GetObject ("winmgmts:")
dim paRunning
paRunning=true
do
WScript.Sleep 2000
paRunning=false

for each Process in Service.InstancesOf ("Win32_Process")
	If Process.Name = "PortableAppsPlatform.exe" then
		paRunning=true
	End If
next
loop until parunning = false
ws.Run("PortableFileAssociator.exe" & " " & "exit") 
Set ws = Nothing 

is this the problem?

(thanks mod ) I checked all

(thanks mod :))
I checked all my associations and one of the options is to open batch files with notepad++
it is an option and not the default selected one but deleting that association fixed the problem Smile

If you're using PFA to set

If you're using PFA to set BAT associations, you need to make sure you copy the host associations for BAT files. Also either set PFA to (No Default) or select Host Precedence.

Close, and half a cigar

Maybe GIMP was a bit too obscure but I was half way there. Smile
