I am successfully running all AMX apps on a Win7 64 bit machine - just installed and they ran, maybe uninstall and try again - sorry no magic answer
If that fails try installing into a different folder and make sure the shortcut is pointing at the right file.
all gave the same result i pasted earlier.
any other help is greatly appreciated. Studio runs fine.
My next guess is that there is a corrupt dll that is not being removed or overwritten on reinstall but i would not mess with deleting dll's unless i was instructed by AMX support.
Maybe your anti virus program is messing with TPD4
Maybe it's related to the graphics card or driver
If you are installing off/to a network drive or synchronised folder, or the default project folder is a network/synchronised folder then try not using it.
Try a different version of TPD4
Sometimes permissions get goofed up when the installer tries to make a new folder but the OS doesn't report the error back to the running process. So, the installer happily moves on even though the file it just installed cannot be accesed when the program tries to run.
I'm suspecting that there's a system file version dependency issue with msvcrt.dll or other file on your machine.
For what it's worth, I installed over my old TPD4 on Win7/64 without incident.
I moved the SETUP out of the ZIP, right clicked on it and did RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR, and all was good.
