#497 closed defect (fixed)

Xpra-Launcher not starting (Code 255), xpra_cmd.exe works.

Reported by: drag0on Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: client Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Windows 8.1 no special configuration (ie Windows Firewall, Windows Defender and Drivers)
Lenovo Touch U430

I have nothing else to report as I tried to add the debugger but only got info that the process does exit with exit code 255.
This problem seems to be there on all versions I tested from https://www.xpra.org/dists/windows/

What is going on? What else should I do? Is there a debugging binary I can try to use?

This is yet another bug caused by FreeBSD compatibility (see #420).
The fix is in r5196 for trunk and r5199 for v0.10.x branch.

I have rebuilt 0.10.12 with this patch on top and uploaded it:

Closing - let me know if you still have problems.

Wow I was pretty sure that I tried Xpra_Setup_0.10.0-r4168.exe as it is in my Downloads folder, but after trying again you are right and this version is working. The given installer (Xpra_Setup_0.10.12-r5199.exe) is also working fine, thank you
