Can't start on my 32 bit system

Get a MsgBox with "...App\RapidEE\rapidee.exe could not be found".

rapideeX64.exe and rapideeX86.exe exist in the RapidEE directory but no rapidee.exe. If I manually copy rapideeX86.exe to rapidee.exe it works fine.

Windows 7 32 bit PC, install path F:\PortableApps\RapidEEPortable

Thanks for doing this app by the way.

Dev Test 2?

I ran into this issue myself with dev test 1, and seemed to have fixed it in my testing with Dev test 2. Can you confirm that you are indeed running Dev test 2?

in App/appinfo.INI, the PackageVersion line should read 8.0 build 904 Dev Test 2.

If it doesn't, please upgrade to Dev test 2 and try again.

Same issue as RogerL, but on windows 7 pro 64bit.

Administrator user with UAC disabled.

Rapid Environment Editor Portable cannot be started. You may wish to re-install to fix this issue. (ERROR: App\RapidEE\rapidee.exe could not be found)

OK

It amazes me that on the internet you can be anything you want, and yet so many people still choose to be idiots.

Yup it's Dev 2

This is from my Appinfo.ini

PackageVersion=7.99.904.802
DisplayVersion=8.0 build 904 Development Test 2

I have tried deleting and reinstalling, with the same result.

Found the problem

OK, I found the problem. I needed to change $INSTDIR to $EXDIR in Custom.nsh. I'm uploading a new DT now.

Excellent

Great, glad that fixed it. I must've been tired when I fixed it originally, because I could've sworn I made that change already, but evidently not.

Or you could use ProgramExecutable64

Another option is to just run them instead of renaming them by using ProgramExecutable64

This can be done by removing Custom.nsh and replacing

[Launch]
ProgramExecutable=RapidEE\rapidee.exe

with

[Launch]
ProgramExecutable=RapidEE\rapideeX86.exe
ProgramExecutable64=RapidEE\rapideeX64.exe

Nope

Normally, yes, this would be the case. In this case, however, the program itself expects rapidee.exe. In the base app, the x86 and x64 versions are distributed separately and both executables are named rapidee.exe. They have been renamed so they can be distributed together.

Updated to DT 3

See release notes for details. Note that this app now runs correctly, both running normally on a vanilla Win 7 x86 system, as well as running as admin on the same setup.

Awesome!

I use RapidEE all the time at work. I'll gladly help test it out.
