World Machine perpetually crashing on start
« on: February 29, 2012, 10:26:57 AM »
I installed the beta earlier today and now even time I start the program it says "Bad news! World machine has crashed!.... etc" and no matter which option I pick it just continues to occur.

Also it doesn't seem to actually save a dmp file of the crash to the document folder so can't upload that either.

Hi there,

I've heard from a few people that there sometimes seems to be a preferences issue happening; resetting them can fix this.

Try removing everything under your C:\Users\<userName>\AppData\Roaming\World Machine 2.2 Professional (or Standard) folder. When you start up World Machine again you will have to re-enter your reg key -- let me know if this fixed the problem!

I will put some error checking for this into the next beta.
