Express won't run after installation


Recommended Posts

When I try to launch RetroExpress.exe (either through remote or

launching application) I get the following -


RetroExpress.exe - Common Language Runtime Debugging Services

Application has generated an exception that could not be handled.

Process id=0x6dc (1756), Thread id=0xa2c (2604).


I then click Cancel to DEBUG and get the following message


RetroExpress.exe - No debugger found.

Registered JIT debugger is not available. An attempt to launch a JIT

debugger with the following command resulted in an error

code ox 0x2 (2). Please check computer settings.

cordbg.exe !a 2x6dc

Click on Retry to have the process wait while attaching a debugger



This doesn't solve the problem: Can anyone please help me with this. I am

using Windows XP Home SP2 and am trying to link to a Maxtor One Touch II 100gb

External hard drive. I have no idea which version of Express is supposed to be running, since I haven't been able to get to it.

I've had this problem for months now and no fix in sight. It has something to do with the .Net installation software, but that's as much as I know. Very frustrating... especially since there doesn't seem to be either a fix or work-around from Maxtor or Dantz.

Every one that Microsoft offers on their XP update page. If I uninstall .Net the Retrospect Express HD installer will just reinstall it again, and the installation still fails. If I install just the 1.1 version, then Express HD will install, but will fail again after the .Net Critical Update and a reboot.

Yes! Uninstalled and re-installed numerous times trying different combinations of things with no success. I've also tried this on 3 different computers that were all running XP, sp2. Same results. The main thing they all have in common are: Asus nForce2 based motherboards (A7N8X and A7N8X-E) and ATI video cards with the latest Radeon drivers. All 3 use the current nVidia nForce drivers as well.


I'm starting to think that the hardware drivers are somehow interfering.

All I have is intel based hardware here (although I sure would love to have an NVidia based setup). Is there any chance you could try rolling back to an older chipset driver? I think the newest versions have some new caching drivers that weren't in previous versions. I'm wondering if that doesn't have something to do with it.
