Vista SP1 Problem?

Postby arpetrie » Mon Mar 24, 2008 1:53 am

Hi, I've just installed Wallpaper Cycler Lite 3.5.0.97 on My Vista SP1 (32 bit) machine, and it won't start up (comes ups with Wallpaper Cycler has stopped working as soon you launch it). Has anyone else had problems with Wallpaper Cycler and Vista SP1? Or is there anything else that could cause the problem... I'm confident the system is free of malware, and I haven't had any problems with other software (pre or post SP1).

thanks.

Is this the full version or the lite version?
As a test, could your right click the Wallpaper Cycler icon and do "Run as administrator"?
Do you see anything about the crash in the Windows Event Log?

It is lite version as mentioned in my initial post. Run as Administrator produces the same result. The Application Error in the Event log gives:

Faulting application WallpaperCycler Lite.exe, version 3.5.0.97, time stamp 0x476400b8, faulting module EXPLORERBAR.dll, version 1.0.0.1, time stamp 0x467563e9, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x00012710, process id 0x11ac, application start time 0x01c88d917b38e70a.

Thanks.

That's strange :(
I'll have to look into it.

I just installed Vista SP1 on my work PC, and it's running 3.1.0.39 Lite (with Vista Patch), and no problems with it. I'll try installing this older version tonight on my home PC...

Has there been any resolution to this? I'm running Vista Home Premium SP1 and 3.5.0.97 Lite with the Vista patch, and WPC crashes if I open up the window (it'll run fine if I just let it cycle on its own). Running as Administrator does not help. Is there any way I can download the older version (3.1.0.39 Lite) that apparently is more stable in Vista? Thanks!

From the Event Log:
Faulting application WallpaperCycler Lite.exe, version 3.5.0.97, time stamp 0x476400b8, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, time stamp 0x00000000, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x00000061, process id 0x11c8, application start time 0x01c8beae84b74790.

Thanks, Marc.

Unfortunately, the 3.1 version also crashes with the patch.

I just realized that the patch I applied to the 3.5 version is really for 3.1, but it allowed me to access the WPC configuration window once (to install some wallpapers) and then failed after that.

Things I've tried:
3.1.0.39 Lite without patch (crashes immediately, leaves process running that must be killed via Task Manager)
3.1.039 Lite with 3.1 patch (crashes when WPC window opened)
3.5.0.97 Lite without patch (crashes when WPC window opened)
3.5.0.97 Lite with 3.1 patch (successfully opened once, but after that crashes when WPC window opened)

I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit with UAC turned OFF. If there's any other information I can give that would be useful, please let me know.

I just released a new patch for running Wallpaper Cycler under Windows Vista.
More details can be found at http://www.nuonsoft.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5062
Maybe this solves your issue.
