Unable to run alice 2.3 (again)
 
My Alice 2.3 starts, but hangs on loading... It runs on Win XP, SP3, Core2Duo, 2GHz, 3GBRAM, 1280x720 resolution screen, Java 6.31. I must end the process in task manager.

Do someone have some suggestion what to do?

Thanks.

Alice will not run
 
Would you do me a favor, delete the version of Alice that you have on your machine that you are trying to run and download an earlier version of Alice, to see if it will install and run. Try the August 5 version, available at this link…

Thank you,
Don

So, as you've already know I downloaded recommended version from august, I remove .alice folder, I deinstalled 3.1, cleared the registry and folders and tryed to run 2.3 on 4 PC (3 stacionary and 1 laptop). They all had XP SP3, slightly different resolution, 3 of them core2duo and laptop with dual core. The situation is the same everywere. But Alice 2.2 works. Now I have only 2 reason remain: 1. national settings or 2. bad copy of 2.3 . Or... ?

I'd like to figure out who had had the same problem, and because of this replaced 2.3 with 2.2? This might be good to know, to find the reason faster.

Thanks.

Problems running Alice
 
This may be a 32/64 bit operating system problem. Our JOGL libraries are for 32bit system, so all 64 bit users need to make their Alice open in 32bit. There is a setting in the properties to do this (for both MAC and Windows)

Return to my main problem I discovered, that 2.3 doesn't work on Vista as well.

My windows was installed DirectX version 9.
What is DirectX version that Alice required?

Running Alice 2.3.1
 
Go to the Alice 2.x archive

[url]http://www.alice.org/index.php?page=downloads/alice2.2_archive[/url]

download and install the 3/1/12 version. Alice creates an invisible .alice or .alice2 folder in your home directory. Delete that before running the older version.

Don, I need Alice 2.3, not 2.2.

twachi 11-13-2012 11:22 PM

Now, I can start Alice 2.3.
 
Yesterday, I cloud not start Alice 2.3 on my Windows XP.
Now I just found solution to start Alice 2.3

There are two files in folder "Alice 2.3\Required\lib".

1. jni_directx7renderer.dll is used for Windows 7.
2. jni_directx7renderer1.dll is used for Windows XP.

If you want to start Alice 2.3 on Windows XP

Just delete file "jni_directx7renderer.dll" or rename it to another name.
After that rename file "jni_directx7renderer1.dll" to "jni_directx7renderer.dll"
