So, anyone using the weekly builds? I just installed it and it won't launch on Windows 7 x64, the previous weekly build worked. Just wondering if it's a known issue or if I need to try and generate a bug report.
I do. What vesrion have you isntalled?
Well, the one that works is 1247 1297 won't launch when I try to run it.
Reported the bug.
I'm on 7 x32. Indeed, build 1297 won't launch when you start.
When a crash occurs, you will be asked to run it in debug mode, by running "%PROGRAMFILES%\OpenLP\OpenLP.exe" -l debug, then run again "%appdata%\openlp", see the log file to check which function had made OpenLP failed to start.
Only a launchable build will create logs. But, since the unlaunchable 1297 didn't create any log, this method does not work.
Hey, may I get the previous build from you? I haven't downloaded it last time.

A new build was done, and it works.
Btw, AFAIU, it more difficult to make windows build?
Maybe, but as long as someone's set up to build it, I wouldn't think it'd be that hard, but it's been over a decade since I worked in anything more complicated that write php code, load in browser on local Server install, so it may be more complex than I remember it being back when I ran my BBS and modded it all the time.
It's not more difficult, it's just that it is a manual process. Also, none of the developers uses Windows, so they have to boot up a virtual Windows computer, run the build, copy it to their computer, and then upload it - a much longer process.
The Linux builds are all automated.
