Avidemux stoppen working - won't even start up
« on: December 24, 2017, 05:54:08 PM »
I have used avidemux 2.6 32 bit and 64 bit over the years I love the simple editing and can't find another program as easy to use. Today I found that it refuses to run, it won't even open!  I have uninstalled, downloaded and re installed it in different versions but no joy it just refuses to run.  I am running windows 10.  Any ideas please?   I have not installed any new antivirus software the only thing I did was download a video converter program that was from the same place I got avidemux, and that was after avidemux had already stopped working.

Thanks

Dave

Maybe there are leftovers from previous installs that are interfering.

Try this:
Unpack avidemux in a separate private folder eg C:\Avidemux (use the latest nightly zipped package!)
Rename avidemux.exe to avidemux_portable.exe.
Run the renamed executable (its now in portable mode).

Does it open now?
