I recently upgraded my windows from XP to windows 7. Now whenever I tried to run Open BE, it presents error given below.

I then remove and fresh install just to update the files according to a new environment but even then it failed to start.

As this program is crucial to my business, so I badly need a working OpenBVE on my computer on windows 7 home premium.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Open BVE Problem error issue

Hi Bill,

OpenVBE is designed to be cross-platform and it should work with Windows 7. Here are a few things that I would try:

1. Update your graphics driver. OpenVBE uses OpenGL for rendering image (versus DirectX). Updating your graphics driver should also update the necessary OpenGL support for this sim.

2. Update your .Net framework. OpenVBE lists .Net assemblies as being used for AI. Go to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=22 to download and install version 3.5 with Service Pack 1.

Hopefully with those two steps your problem has been solved. The following is 'last ditch effort' steps:

3. Use compatibility mode. Right click the application, select 'properties' and click the 'compatibility' tab. Check 'Run program in compatibility mode', select Windows XP.

4. Run XP … On a virtual machine. If all else fails then it might be best to just run it on a platform that you know for sure works: XP. Grab VirtualBox from https://www.virtualbox.org/ and set up Windows XP on it, then install OpenVBE there.

Hope this helps!
