    Elekscam crashed at splash screen.

    UPDATE: Per MuuSer, installed proper VC install and all worked

    @mrmister have you tried install Visual C dependency runtime? They are in EleksCAM.rar pack file if you download it from this site, named 'VC Install x32.exe' and 'VC Install x64.exe' In BangGood's file they are missing.
    You need install only 'VC Install x32' as EleksCAM is 32bit application.

    @MuuSer ... Thank You, intall VC 86 fixed it.

    what is the 64 purpose?

    @mrmister
    Maybe they hope someday release also a 64bit version of EleksCAM, but if they develop it as they do now - then it takes a very loooong time. :)

    I see huge potential of EleksCAM. It is intuitive to use (except Laser ON/OFF and Weak ON/OFF buttons that seems to me like indicators, not a buttons and that is confusing), but at this time it is less than basic...

    Sorry @pak_slc, but it is not in my chancery. I'm just a customer as you are. Maybe in better standing as I'm a little bit programmer and also know how physical equipments behave.
    Yes - it's in my power to wrote some kind of software for Eleks machines, but I have plenty of other things to do, so I afraid, I don't find time for that before I retire, but then - I hope - exists huge amount of pretty software for such kind of machines...

    P.S.
    But you haven't complain and clarify exactly your problems with EleksCAM. Maybe our friendly community and/or EleksMaker stuff can help you and lead to right way?

    T2Laser is paid, but you get what you pay for ;)

    (the free to use trial has a generous limit of 10,000 lines of g-code or 1,000 lines of vector)

    I'm T2's biggest advocate. I couldnt get benbox (this was in october so there was no elekscam) to install. I tried T2 and it got me going. I tried it for a week or so without buying a license. I dont pay for software.... like ever! I paid for T2 and I would do it again. I dont regret 1 cent of that investment. Not only is it the best laser software on the market but zax is more responsive than any programmer on the face of the planet! If you dont like something or you want a special feature and he can add it, he will. I cant tell you how many tweeks he has made to the program cuz I threw out something dumb like, "man this t2 is cool but it would be nice if it could turn my jpg into a vector." then the next weekend he has written a tracing program! (i dont think auto trace was my idea but you get the picture!) The best part is you can try it for free. You get 10000 lines of gcode and 30 minutes. At the end of the 30 minutes just restart and your 10000 lines and time reset. Try it as many times as you need to make sure it works on your system. If you like it and want to do bigger or longer projects Zax will gladly accept your $39.95

    FYI I'm not related to Zax and I have never met him... Just a big fan of his work because it makes what I do possible.

    Yes it can work on Windows 7 and Windows 10.

    Did you load the VC install x32?

    Did you change your windows regional settings so that the decimal point is a . instead of a , ?

    Does Elekscam crash at the splash screen?

    Have tried logging into the Administrator account and running the program? EleksCam would not run on one of my computers and so I formatted the disk, reinstalled windows, and now the program runs. I think it had sometjing to do with the user account settings.

    Make a video of starting up the program and post it here.

    Also, have you tried the comparability mode when all else fails? right click, properties compatibility to windows xp or another for the EleksCam - just a thought- It should run no problem on windows 7 with 32 or 64bit. make sure that the drivers are up to date and installed for the system and for the USB.



  • @LASERMAN

    CLR20r3

    did you seat the "CLR20r3 error message"

    Yes elekscam needs lots of work. I will not use 3.10.

    If you use elekscam on a laptop, you very likely do not get all features. On many laptops the user does not get all 5 Home coordinate options. These options are important for starting point. The default resolution is 1033x768. On a laptop this default size 3.10 and on older version the size can not be changed

  • The least function i want is that the program starts. But it don't.
    How did you manage to make the installation so complex?
