Help, Software will not run

Post by Chris62 » Sat Feb 27, 2016 6:35 pm

I am running Windows 7 on a 64 bit machine. Its an older machine (2009 I think) that I bought just for running the Shapeco 3.

When I click on the Carbide Create or Carbide Motion icons, nothing happens. I have the most recent versions of Java and Adobe Flash. These programs simply wont load. I have tried all versions and none will load.

What am I missing?

Thanks for your help.

Carbide Create and Motion, AIUI are QT programs which have been compiled for Windows.

There have been reports of problems w/ 64-bit systems — try a 32-bit machine?

As a thought, try installing the 32-bit (x86) version of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributes: ... x?id=40784

I had a similar problem when installing Carbide Motion (355) on a 64-bit Windows 7 laptop recently.

The Carbide Motion installer includes a 64-bit version of it's dependencies, but for some unknown reason this laptop needed the 32-bit version installed as well. After that, Carbide Motion worked. :)
