Re: RELEASE: wxLauncher 0.9.4 beta [Updated 2013/06/09]
@JackHo:  Does your system have a "C:\Programmes" as well?  If so, did you create it manually?  Do you have a "C:\Program Files" or "C:\Program Files (x86)" on your system?

Indeed I have both "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)" on C:\ but not "Programmes" which I created only on D:. And also I don't have either "C:\Games" or "D:\Games".

:v: Hope this helps!

Re: RELEASE: wxLauncher 0.9.4 beta [Updated 2013/06/09]
Dear All,

I have played FS2 Open quite a bit, and find it enjoyable.
Recently, I got a new computer, and I wanted to reinstall FS2 Open to at least try to finish the FS2 campaign, and try some nice mods.

I've installed the Debian testing Jessie, which will be the Stable distribution in a few month. On the stock distribution, there are cmake 3.0.2 and libwxgtk 3.0 packaged. Although it's specified wxLauncher should use cmake 2.8, it works fine with cmake 3.0.
On the other hand, the compilation failed with libwxgtk3.0, and it looks like I need the 2.8 version off the library.
This one is not packaged in current Debian. I could always install package from Wheezy, but unless it is really necessary I would prefer to not manage package from an old version.

So, do you guys plane to make an update from libwxgtk2.8 to libwxgtk3.0 ?
Or do you have any ideas to what could make it work with the last wxgtk library ?

Many thanks,
--
Darckense

Based on the questions that I have gotten from Olly I was under the impression that wxLauncher was in the package repository for Jesse as "freespace2-launcher-wxlauncher".

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=749834

Is that not the case?

Well.... Indeed, it works.
My mistake, I'm so used to compile games myself that I did'nt check if it was packaged in Jessie...

Need to find my joystick, now ! ;-D

Any easy way you guys can get the launcher to check if the necessary FS2 registry settings exist, and if not, then prompt for admin access and set them?

It is certainly possible and I thought it was in the list, but I have created issue 120 so that it doesn't get forgotten.

Hey Iss Mneur, would you be interested in transferring ownership of the wxLauncher GitHub repo to the scp-fs2open organization? It should help us keep tabs on things and maybe also help attract more attention to wxL.

wxLauncher 0.10.0!  Yes it is finally here, after almost 2 years.  See the original post for the details.

OS: Windows 7 64-bit SP1

Unfortunately, I'm unable to run the new version. Installation works fine, but when I try to run wxLauncher, I get this error:

Quote
C:\Program Files (x86)\wxLauncher\bin\wxlauncher.exe

The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe for more detail.

I tried using the debug build in hopes that it would generate a log, but it didn't. In fact, it doesn't seem to be writing anything to AppData. I also tried running it as an administrator with no luck.

I've attached the sxstrace output in case it's useful.

Try the debug version. Apparently the release version is linked against the debug CRT. I will have to check how I did that tomorrow.

The debug build produces the same error as the release build, so I doubt that's the problem. That is, unless the debug build uses the release build's CRT.

Fix versions of both the release and debug installer have been uploaded in the place of the previous, so the URLs have not changed. Please redownload it and try it now.  The installer should prompt about removing the same version.

In the end it was incorrect CRTs but for multiple reasons.  It seems that the new build script was not actually swtiching between debug and release, it was only makeing release builds.  So, the the release and the debug version were identical, which explains why the release version had the debug CRTs.  In addition, it was linking against both VC9's Debug CRT and VC9 SP1's Debug CRT, but the installer only includes VC9 SP1's Debug CRT, which was what was actually causing the SxS error.

This version runs, but it seems to be writing to the wrong place in the registry. I now have the following two registry entries:
Code: [Select]
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Software\Volition\Freespace2
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Volition\FreeSpace2
The former appears to have been written by wxLauncher; the latter is the one FSO seems to use.

So would you advise I try this new version or stick to the previous wxlauncher (.94) that I have?
