PPSSPP does not start at all (no error message) - Euchale - 10-18-2013 07:16 AM

Not Sure where to put this as there is no "Technical issues" subforum, if this is the wrong forum feel free to move it.

I´m using the latest build 0.9.1 for Windows 32 bit.
My specs are:
Microsoft Windows XP
Intel Core i5 3.20 GHz
2 GB Ram
Nvidia Quadro FX 380 (it supports openGL 2.0)

My guess is that I´m missing out on a software that I need to start it, but I don´t know what I need. Maybe the XNA dev kit?

Does not start at all? No error message? No window at all? Sounds very strange.

Does it need a runtime enviroment? Or maybe a something that everybody usually has installed (like flash)?

edith says: Just tried to put the files on a different PC and there it runs just fine. What am I missing?
Also tried Administrator Mode, this is not the problem.

It doesn't need any devkits, but it does need DirectX and the Visual C++ redists. Normally you'll receive an error message when these aren't found. Maybe there's a way to configure Windows not to show any.

Try installing these:

DirectX I think is in Windows Update, you can try this:

Would be interested if that helps or does not help.

Installing the Visual C++ redists did the trick for me. Thanks!
