hmmm

It might be trouble with the compression. I compressed it using the PortableApps.com AppCompactor, LZMA.

Do you know any specific location that this occurs? Maybe someone can confirm it? Or maybe its just a glitch in windows 7.

Thanks for reporting it.

It does not work on my Windows 7 system

I installed 0 A.D. Alpha 2 Portable Development Test 1 on my flash drive and tried to run it on my Windows 7 (64 bit) system. The splash screen appeared but after it went away there was a short delay and then Windows reported "pyrogenesis.exe has stopped working"

Starts fine for me on XP sp3, now I know it works I will try later tonight on my Windows 7 box.

Edit: Can verify that there is a problem on Win 7. I get the same error regarding pyrogenesis.exe while attempting to run on Win 7 64bit.

It might be of note that on the official site the game supports the following OS's:

  • Windows 2000, XP, 2003, XP64, Vista
  • Linux
  • Mac OS X

No go on Win7

Just tried launching on Windows 7 Pro. No luck.

Tried running as administrator and didn't launch either.

On both occasions I get a splash and the 0AD Portable process happening but the game doesn't launch.

Receive a pyrogenesis .exe has stopped working message when running as administrator.

Hope that helps Smile

No Win7 available?

Maybe they don't have access to a Windows 7 machine to test it on. I'm sure it's not a conscious choice ("we absolutely refuse to support Windows 7"). Now Vista on the other hand... Biggrin

Rather 64bit than Win 7 ?

/me (Vista Ultimate x64) also isn't able to run 0AD (-Portable).
I just see the splash screen and then nothing more, also ProcExp proves that "pyrogenesis.exe" just quits immediatly after being launched, though there is no error message.
So this might be related to 64 bit Windows rather than Windows 7.
Also, I don't know of any big differences between Vista and 7, but there are certainly major ones between 32bit and 64 bit Windows.

Updated to Alpha 4

You might notice an error window(s) keeps popping up in this version. I think those were added just to debug the app. It's not a portable app issue.

I think I'll wait for Alpha 7 to come out though, because its a pretty hefty app, and Alpha 7 will hopefully be released soon. If I miss it though, just reply with the download link.

And thanks for telling me.

Updated to Alpha 6

On second thought, I decided to update it. It's a monster download, but I wanted to upgrade it to PAL, and get it over with.

And if anyone is willing to try this new version in Windows 7, please report back.

Not Running

I just downloaded and installed the new Alpha 6. When I tried to run it, I was watching the task manager, and it loads partially, then disappears. My computer specs are as follows:

OS: Windows 7 SP1 32-bit
RAM: 3GB
HDD: 250GB
Graphics: Integrated
Sound: Integrated
Form Factor: Laptop

Hope this helps.

Thank you.

I've posted a different version of 0 A.D. for testing on Windows 7 (uncompressed). Try and see if that works for you.

[EDIT] Finally after searching the 0 A.D. forums forever, it does seem as though 0 A.D. is supposed to work on Windows 7, even though others have encountered problems.
See the topic.

Uncompressed version works on Windows 7 64-bit

The uncompressed version runs on my Windows 7 64-bit system.

The normal version fails to display anything and eventually exits.

I've posted a new version, compressed with NRV2E. Try that and see if that will work. (Oddly, it actually turned out to be smaller than with LZMA, the one that hasn't been working.)

Alpha 6 Redeux

Same laptop setup as before. The uncompressed version worked perfectly fine when I installed and ran it, but the new NRV2E compressed one pulled the same "show up in task manager then disappear" trick that the original LZMA compressed version did. I hate to say it, but compression may not be Windows 7's best friend.

Can someone post a list of the executables/DLLs of 0 A.D.? I know of some files that should not be compressed.

Note that it's about a 200 MB increase in size from Alpha 6, so be sure you have enough space!

And it wouldn't hurt for one more tester on Windows 7 to try it out. Smile

Update 12 Problems

Upon download, the package says there's a problem before the installer even starts. I believe it said that the package hash does not match or is corrupt.

Edit: It says the "Installer integrity check has failed" and the problem is with NSIS. I have tried multiple clean downloads, and the error is the same.

Check your internet connection

The installer I compiled worked fine, and the MD5 matches the version on sourceforge. I also just downloaded it again and ran the installer and it worked fine.

Did you try comparing the MD5 hashes of the installers you downloaded?

Turns out my connection was dropping right at the end of the original downloads when I was doing it on my laptop. Downloaded on my desktop, and it worked fine the first time. Should have probably checked that first. But it works.
