We have these certain files that will not run on our ocmputer. There are a certain type of exe (I will give an example later). After we had some probeblems with our computer, we got a new vid card for our computer. And everything has ben going perfectly fine until we got a this certian type of .exe file. It will run the normal counsle mode but when it swiches to full screen mode it stays a black color and will not show anything! We cn exit and everything fine from it and we have had no other probeblems until now.
PLASMA.exe Example, that doesn't work on our computer
Does anyone have any ideas. Any leads. Anything at all?
What OS are you using? Windows 2000?
windows xp home
ATI radeon 9200 PCI 256mb 128 bit vid card.
intergraded sond card
512mb (non ddr) ram
Erm what is the program supposed to do?
Hey open a console and run it from withint a console.
then it will give you an error message.
I'd much prefer to look at the source code than run a random executable file from a message board.
Especially from someone who has previously asked about embedding exe's in jpgs and other hackish questions.
if you open it up in notepad/hex editor you see the problem.
Like I said your probably getting an error message but it doesnt pause after the message. It gives the message and quits the program. SO open up a command prompt and run it from there.
sorry no error message. It just stays black.
"Especially from someone who has previously asked about embedding exe's in jpgs and other hackish questions."
Firstly you got the wrong person, I never asked about that. And I didn't make this program it is called a vitual drug. And I don't know what it is suposed to do becuase
1) it is my brothers downlaoded program.
2) it doesn't work for me.
But some reason all other .exe files work.
"Halo²: Stop the pirating"
I agree they ruined all the fun of waiting 2 years. (It was suposed to come out in 2002.)
and ok I ran comand promt and it gave me this error...
Stub exec failed:
No such file or directory
and it was PLASMA.EXE I ran too. at least tried to run.
Now any help, do I need do download something?
PLASMA.exe obviously needs dos4gw to run.
Do you have a source as to where you got Plasma.exe? Is there a readme or any info on a website that states requirements?
That explains what dos4gw is.
In other words you need this before plasma will work.
thanks alot you guys! This board is even better then c++ help!
Yoru all the best!
I downloaded dos4gw 1.97 but now what do I do. It runs throw comand promt fine now and dos4gw is in the directory PLASMA.EXE is in. But it is still black screen.
Did you go through a command prompt?
There still could be more problems/missing files.
From the look of the exe, there are plenty of error messages.
Well I also have other .exe files like that too that still don't work. It is not just that one file it is more.
