Advanced control issue

Postby jason str » Tue Dec 04, 2018 4:58 am

Just downloaded V7.5.1 for Windows (Vista 64 HP) and advanced control is showing an error listed below.

cx_Freeze:Python error in main script.

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling V7.5.1 and still have the exact same problem. Is this no longer used ? i still see the option on the toolbar that pops up.

There is/was a known problem with advanced control (aka FAHControl) that involved the default theme ... it didn't always work properly ... solution ... if you can get into preferences change the theme and restart FAHControl.

Cannot get into advanced control to change anything or even see my log, just what pops up as shown in my previous post.

Any other way to get to that ?

I'm not sure how well Vista is supported as I have not used it in many years but have a look at the Requiements:

You may see some prerequisite that you're missing.
e.g. "... Microsoft .NET Framework is required by V7 FAHControl in Windows ..."

Been folding for years with this machine, all i did was update to the newer version 7.5.1.
Just updated my nvidia driver today, no change.

Looks like this Python is some kind of program, i don't know where it came from or who installed it ( maybe the kids ?) but there is no program installed by that name as far as i can see. Will continue my search. Must be some kind of incompatibility with the new download version i guess.

Python is a scripting language that is used by FAHClient. (https://www.python.org/) In the past I've seen some issues with the version of Python installed on your OS but apparently you didn't change that, so I'm not sure what the problem might be.
