#1 Installed v5.0.4 (540) and it doesnt display on Windows 10?

Posted by: Barton | Date: 2020-12-31 15:46 | IP: IP Logged

Downloaded the Installer version and when I launch PSPad, the wait icon displays, then stops, and nothing else happens. I check the Task Manager and see "Text editor (32 bit) in the "Background processes". Used PSPad for years, what's happened?

Thanks.

When you kill the process and start it again, will you see the same?

Yup, to samé. Nejde spustit. I když ukončím proces a spustím znovu. 539 funguje, 540 nikoli.

Hello guys

Please download portable version:
pspad.poradna.net

It should appear as PSpad 5.0.4 (541)
Can you test it please?

Because I am not able to simulate it, I need someone who can help me with testing.

Download current ZIP.
Unpack PSPad.exe + Language subfolder only, nothing else into separate folder out of program files

Run PSPad.exe from this folder.

Does it hangs?

--------------------------------------

PSPad stores it's config files in user profile: %appdata%\pspad
Delete (or rename) PSCache5.bin file from this folder.

If I copy just the .exe and language folder, it works and displays the editor as expected.

For reference to the earlier install problem. When I end the task in the task manager for the full install and re-run the pspad.exe, the pspad.exe still hangs.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

If you have little time, can you please extract whole portable version into some folder and run PSPad.exe from this folder?
If it will start, there is problem with old profile, try delete pscache5.bin file from the PSPad profile in %appdata%\PSPad

If it hangs, try to move out all DLL files in folder. If doesn't hang, return some files and test it.

I removed the previous installation last night (Revo Uninstaller). I freshly installed it from the installer (.exe) and it now launches as expected.

I realise that it doesn't really help you solve the original problem, sorry.

I had the exact same problem with the new v5.0.4 version as the original poster.
I installed the previous version v5.0.3 over it and everything works fine again.
I will wait for a newer version winking smiley
