Double bugs in 2.4.3
2 Attachment(s)
I'm running Alice 2.4e on a 64-bit windows 10 machine. The program is installed into the Program Files(x86) folder.

When I start it, I occasionally receive an error on startup which would not appear to be a significant problem, but here it is below.

Also, when I try to run the software update using the help menu I receive the other error listed below.

Any feedback appreciated.

I decided to re-download, unpack, and push Alice 2.4e into the same folder. This appears to have fixed the problems.
One [COLOR="SeaGreen"]possible[/COLOR] reason for the problem might be that I upgraded my PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10 with all software already installed. Don't really know, but this could be something for teachers to look out for if upgrading their O/S. :confused:

Interesting. Is there a copy of the Alice program files in the Windows.old folder?

Layout and file access error
Mr Moke,

Your first error just says that Alice fails to layout the thumbnail of all your Alice 2 a2w files in the Startup window. Not a major problem as the problem will fix itself when the window redraws.

As for the second error, it is either a missing (or corrupted) file error or you do not have read/write permission to the file location.
