Lockup After File Updates in URUSETUP.EXE

Postby gabriml » Sat 11. Feb 2012, 09:02

There was a ~12 MB update today and after that URUSETUP.EXE was taking 25% of the CPU and eventually quit working. I had used it successfully about a week ago. I running Win 7 Ult 64bit. I keep it up-to-date with Win Update.

Try to run it in Windows 7 compatability mode and as administrator.

I'm running TOC MOUL on a Win7 64-bits system and I run it in compatibility mode for win 98 and with administrator rights, I don't crash (at least up until now). I was crashing a lot in Win XP SP3. I moved to win 98 compatibility thursday night :)

I had been running in compatibility mode (Windows 7) and it by default ran in admin mode. I set it to Win 98 compatibility mode and had same problem except that it only took 15 sec to report that it had stopped working rather than 10 minutes in Win 7 compatibility mode.

So no change.

Could it be related to Visual C++ Redist 2010 I installed to make TOC MOUL work?

OK -- I figured it out.

I don't know how it happened---but my TOC-TPOTS shortcut was linked to 'urusetup.exe' in my TOC-MOUL folder. It seemed to let me login ok with my TPOTS account but locked and crashed just before the 'Starting URU' dialog. It even completed an update (12 MB) before the lockup. The update did not seem to affect my TOC-MOUL installation--it is still working fine--->made it out to Kerath's Arch.

Replaced the shortcut and TOC-TPOTS is working fine.

Sorry for the problem.

Note: for some reason TOC-TPOTS always runs in 'admin mode'. I checked all the EXE compatibility tabs and none have 'admin mode' checked. The shortcut has a shield on the icon but its compat. tab does not show 'admin mode' checked. No big deal--just an extra click on start up.
