FC 8 do not open/start

Postby AbhijitR » Thu Oct 31, 2019 1:06 pm

Hello!

Kindly excuse me if this is repeat topic, unfortunately I did not find any relevant topic on forum.

Today since afternoon I received 3-4 times the popup about Windows Restart, and everything automatically shut down and restart, I restart the computer twice, now I am not able to start FlowCode.

I am using Windows 8.1 Pro, 64 Bit, 8GB Ram and FC8 (unfortunately not able to share the version, do not open, but it is 8.1 if I have not mistaken)

Can someone please help me out with this, I am not able to start/open FC8 anymore.

NOTE: I am using FC8 on this machine since last 8 to 10 months but never faced such problem, but today I am opening/using FC6 file for few time to exchange some flowchart, is this the problem, I do not know.

Thank you.

Regards
Abhi

Hi Abhi,
It looks like this is the official line on that bug.

Hello! Martin

Thanks for the answer, it seams I have to uninstall FC8 and again do fresh installation, is it? my goodness, already short time to work on actual project. :lol:

Stupid question, where can I find the latest version of FC8 Pro

I am not able to open your second link (on the line number 2, says "You are not authorised to read this forum.")

Thank you.

Within the link it's suggested to delete the registry key for FlowcodeV8.
However, you can find the Flowcode install files here
LED update here

Hi! Martian (SAVIOUR)

As usual :), I am done with the fresh installation and now FC V8.2.1.13 opens well, I will work for some time and keep posted.

Once again I will repeat, coping flowchart (partially) from written/created in FC6 to FC8 could be the problem, I ask because if this is the problem I will stop copy/paste.

Thank you again.

Abhi

Hi Abhi,
You're welcome.

I'm not sure, but if you would prefer I can convert V6 to V8.
If you want me to do that for you, just pm flowchart and I will pm you the V8 version.

Hi! Martin

Okay, as said earlier I wanted a small part from the previous flowchart, but if I really need to import/convert the entire chart I shall request you to do the favor for me.

Humbly thank you again.

Hello! Martin

Sorry to say, but I have detected one more problem while simulation, if I change the "Simulation Speed" from normal to lower speed by one step or even more, FC stop responding and surprisingly nothing works after, I was only able to stop/close FC from "Task Manager"

Is there any way to solve this problem.

Thank you.

Abhi

Hi Abhi,
I have not experienced the same issue.
Are you able to post your flowchart and I can try with that?

Yes you are right, even I did not face any problem while simulation later, but I need to make a note, the copy/paste of the FC6 chart to FC8 chart made some problem I think so, as the chart written in FC8 alone compile well and also I am able to change the simulation speed, so the problem is with sharing part of FC6 chart to FC8 chart.

Thank you again for your concern, have a pleasant evening and a nice weekend too.
