Alice 2.2 does'nt download and install correctly
 
Okay, this is getting me VERY frustrated. No matter HOW many times I download and install Alice it still doesn't work. It keeps saying this:

:mad:[B]This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.[/B]:mad:

Can someone please help me!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I need this for school, and it is getting pretty annoying, having to cram as much as I can at school before going home and seeing it fail. I really need help.

Re: Alice 2.2 does'nt download and install correctly
 
To get useful help you will need to be very specific:

Which platform are you on? One would presume Windows, but if so, what version?

Where did you download it from, and using what? Nobody
really uses FTP anymore, but it had a text and a binary mode, and that could result in corruption.

Is the file the right size once you have downloaded it?
There are more stringent tests for file integrity, but they
are rather technical.

Have you installed over the top of a previous version, or did
you do an uninstall first? If so, how did you do the uninstall?

Do you have administrative rights on the machine so you
can install software?

Sup didn't our teacher tell you to go after school and copy the files.

-I am using windows XP.
-And since Alice doesn't "install" like other programs I just deleted all of its files. -And I download Alice 2.2. from Alice's direct Windows link. Not from the mirror. -And I tried it on the administrator account too. No dice.

Oh and I uh lost the teachers copy and paste thing............

This might help, when I downloaded Alice before I reinstalled Windows XP it worked great.

JUST TO ADD: The download size is 267 MB (Both on mirror and on site).

Reboot your computer. If that doesn't work in class I will share you the files.

for some reason alice isn't downloading on any windows computers but it downloads just fine on macs
what the heck?

zonedabone 10-20-2010 03:56 PM

That's because windows had pity on the mac and decided to give it one advantage to compete with its millions. :D

Now that the spam is over, a suggestion:

Go into your documents and settings folder and delete the folder named .alice or .alice2. Delete all of the files, download alice, and run the normal exe. If that fails, try slow and steady. (If using 2.2) for last resort, go into the required folder and run ifalicefailstrythis.exe. If none of that works, just say and I'll bring out the harder options. ;)
