xLauncher.exe Unhandled exception on Windows Vista

Postby WarSword » 19 Nov 2017 04:35

Hello, I can't seem to get into the xLauncher.exe "Options" menu.

Original DBTS + LFL seems to be running fine with XP compatibility and Run as Admin. enabled.
Move Editor works fine too.
I am getting an Unhandled exception error when I go to "Options" in the Launcher.
Error MSG:
"Could not load file or assembly 'SlimDX.dll' or one of its dependencies. the application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800736B1)"

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box."

From what I gather SlimDX.dll is an Extended mod application extension. I could not find any information regarding this problem on the forum so I'm posting it here. Any help with this problem would be much appreciated.

Sorry for the 3 months late reply. I haven't released any modding stuff in years and as a result don't visit here very often.

Try the following:
- If the SlimDX DLL is missing, download Xtended again and extract all files, including the SlimDX.dll, to the DbtS installation folder.
- If there's a SlimDX.dll.config file, delete it.
- If that doesn't help, try to install the 3 Microsoft Runtimes listed in the Requirements section of the readme.txt file.

I hope that helps. Have fun!
