Problem Launching application from the platform

I have the game "Plasma Pong" installed, and it will run fine if you open it from windows explorer, but the platform will not open it. If i click on its icon on the menu, it just closes the menu and does nothing.

When the game launches, it usually opens a command prompt displaying the game settings, and then launches the game itself and GLUT (something to do with opengl)

It's been a week, does nobody know why this is happening?

Wrong EXE

Are you sure the platform is calling the right executable? Perhaps, there are a couple and it's trying to launch the wrong one.

Nope

There are only 2 exes, the one to launch it, and the uninstall program... I set the platform to open the launcher one.

Can you give the actual file locations?

And did you create an appinfo.ini file? If so, what's in it?

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.

You reminded me

I didn't actually create my own appinfo, i just copied one from lightscreenportable.

It turns out the problem was i had the wrong exe in the ini, and it tries to launch lightscreenportable.exe :|

Thanks for referring me to the appinfo file, it works fine now. Biggrin
