Help! D2X-XL not starting!

Postby ShadowHyena » Wed Apr 08, 2015 3:03 pm

I just reinstalled windows 7(64-bit) last night due to an infection. The first thing I installed was XL itself, had all of Descent 1 and 2's game data in the folder as well, and I recieved an error upon start up with both d2x-xl.exe and d2x-xl-omp.exe. "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close to application.". I tried a few things like downloading and installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Packages for x86 and x64, Made sure my video card drivers were up to date. Nothing seemed to work. So then I tried using the x64 executable, and it freezes on initializing. Not sure what to do! :/

Hmm, that sucks. Try to install all Windows updates first. That's all coming to my mind. I have no problem running D2X-XL on my machine, just tried it to be sure.

I had this issue on another computer that's not my main one (just happened me once and only on that one).
I solved it by copying the DLLs from DLE to the D2X-XL folder (overwriting the D2X-XL ones) and it worked like a charm.

How long ago was that, pumo?
I tried it with the current version of DLE and it still has no effect. :/

EDIT: What the flying f***... So I guess the 199 windows updates worked. D2X-XL now runs! XD

It was about a year ago.

I found this help article at TomsHardaware about that issue, see if you find a solution (it seems it happens with different and diverse programs on different setups of Windows 7/8):
