Error prevents launch: Win32 version 1.2.1-1


#1

I just loaded version 1.2.1-1 for Windows, uninstalled the old version per instructions, installed the new version, and have tried to launch the program.

I only get an error message:

Unable to launch Bash.exe

Anyone know how to get it working?


#2

More today: I re downloaded both the standalone version and the installer, win32 to be clear. I then uninstalled MyPaint, as well as Krita since I was to install a newer version of that as well. Then I rebooted the computer.

I unzipped and tried to start the standalone version, and got the same error.

I then reinstalled the installer version, same results.

I then tried every combination available in Win8.1’s compatibility mode dialog for both MyPaint.exe and Bash.exe. In every case I either got the same error, or no response at all when I tried to start the program.

If it helps: I’m running Win8.1 on a Baytrail tablet w/ wacom digitizer: Asus Vivotab Note 8.

Is anyone else able to run this?

This is being dealt with in the bug tracker. Please provide further feedback there.

EDIT: Despite the preview saying “closed”, it’s open and being chased.

Here’s a build for affected people to try. Note that filebin has mangled the download names, if you’re verifying your download.

I’ve downloaded the new release and run the program. It starts as expected and also seems more responsive than rhe beta version before it.

Thanks to all involved!
