Installer Help (x64 issue)

Postby tofuturkey » Sat May 18, 2013 7:45 pm

I'm running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. When I try to install Xulu, it throws an error because the Visual C++ 2010 Runtime Libraries x64 is not compatible with 32-bit windows. I looked at the system requirements, and all they say is that I must have Windows 7 and a directx 10 compatible graphics card. Is this program only available for 64-bit Windows 7?

Below is an image:

Thanks

PS: Just got back from the Maker Faire, really like this platform and I hope I can be able to use it! :)

That's odd. I haven't worked on the installer, but I'm certain it should only try to install the x86 version of the redistributable even if you were running on a x64 OS. I'll forward this along to a coworker with more knowledge on the subject and see if we can figure this out.

I haven't heard anything yet, unfortunately. I'll shoot them another e-mail to make sure they haven't forgotten about you.

Okay, let's try a work around.

First, make sure you have the Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable installed. You can get it directly from Microsoft:

The basic x86 redistributable can be downloaded from here.
The SP1 updated x86 redistributable can be downloaded from here.

Next, download the updated version of our laucher and save it to your desktop. Then create the directory C:\Program Files\Xulu\launcher and move the xLauncher.exe you saved on your desktop into the launcher folder. That should be it. Try running it and let me know if you have any more problems.

PS. You may also want to create a desktop shortcut for the xLauncher.exe. Since you didn't go through the installer, you'll have to create the shortcut manually.
