Hello, after upgrading to Eagle 8, eagle.exe crashes on startup. Have used E6 and 7 fine for years, new Eagle 8 just doesn't work for me. Generic screenshots are attached. Tried reinstalling a few times to no avail; any other advice? Using this for work so I need to get this fixed yesterday...
Solved! Go to Solution.
I deleted the directory then went into programs and features and uninstalled it there.
I then reran the install and it's hanging on the V++ stuff still, been running since last night.
i terminated that process.
here's the plus, I can now run eagle 8.0.1.
the minus when I exit it it crashes (attached event log)
it seems to run ok though, but will need more time to know for sure
I don't like the VC++ stuff not finishing and maybe part of why I have the crash at the end now?
Do you have visual studio installed on your machine, do you code using that tool?
The second picture you posted seems to hint that there is some interaction. Could you confirm?
Indirectly yes since I have Atmel Studio installed although I only installed Atmel Studio yesterday and have had the Eagle issue for about a week now. Perhaps it's something to do with Microsoft C++ Redistributable or .NET Framework?
Can you confirm the path you installed EAGLE too? It should be the root of C, which is where it wants to go by default. Make sure there are no spaces in this path if this is indeed where you installed it to.
This might be the issue since Windows places a lot of restrictions on the Program Files and Program Files (x86) folders, if you installed there this might explain the crashes.
Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
Network connection: I am using this on a work PC although it is a small LAN not unlike a basic home network setup. We have two licenses where the Engineer sitting beside me is able to run Eagle just fine.
Graphics: Radeon 270. I disabled this as well as updated and it seemed to have no effect on Eagle.
Antivirus: Windows defender. I disabled this and it seemed to have no effect.
RoboForm/Ad-aware: not installed
Hopefully you can follow this screencast share. It is public but I haven't used screencast before...
There is no auto-generated crash report. Jorge, this is not OK; I am under a deadline and this is dragging out too long. Eagle 7 runs just fine on my machine. Eagle 8 is broken. I get the error as soon as Eagle tries to bring up the login window. What dependency does Eagle 8 have that Eagle 7 does not especially regarding the addition of the login window?
I really do appreciate your help but I badly need this software to work. Can you provide me with a professional license of Eagle 7 as at least that is working.
Lavasoft was running unbeknownst to me (using an hand-me-down computer) as "web companion" in prog/features. After uninstalling, Eagle now works. Sorry, this was frustrating for me. Glad it works now.
I am having this same problem and it just started.
It had been working fine.
I have no Lavasoft programs on my PC, checked both Programs and Features and looked in my Program Files directory for it.
I am on a Dell Laptop i5, Eagle 5.6 runs fine. eagle 8 gets same error after I enter my User ID and Password.
Bitfender is turned off
Using Intel HD Graphics for video
No more running than normal when it worked last
Thanks for your participation on the forum, sorry for the inconvenience you are experiencing. Can you please verify that the version of Windows you are using is 64bit?
I also thought i had the same problem. Lavasoft wasnt installed on my computer but the files are in the program files(x86) folder. I installed the program then uninstalled it and Eagle started working perfectly. i suggest you check too.
