Construct install issues on windows 7 64bits [Solved]

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Sun Sep 12, 2010 7:27 pm

Hi,

Sorry to start my forum life with a request for help but I've tried a lot of things before coming here, and this is getting frustrating.

On my 64 bit windows 7 laptop, when I install Construct, all goes well until I reach the DirectX prompt, it then tells me that I should check if cryptography services are running, and then that the install is not complete.

Then when I still fire up the Construct icon, it tells me that the program cannot launch because it's missing a Xapofx1_1.dll

Which is strange, considering that windows seven is supposed to have directX11 preinstalled.
What's more I have other DirectX apps running fine on this system.*

Soooo :mrgreen: , has anyone met this issue before ?

Thanx.

I am running on a windows 7, 64bit machine. But I couldn't upgrade, i am still working fine with v 99.62. try back tracking and see if it helps. I am not sure where to find older versions, but i think i still have the install file if you need it.

As far as i know the DirectX 11 that comes with Windows 7 does not include DirectX 9, and it must be installed manually.

Try installing this: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/d ... laylang=en

I've installed Construct fine on a Windows 7 64-bit laptop, it must be an issue with the DirectX installer. And yes, DirectX 11 does not include the "optional" components of DirectX 9 which is what the installer is installing. Try just cancelling the DirectX installer and installing it from the Microsoft website maybe?

Thanx for the help guys.

Turns out DirectX was the problem as I tried the directX 9sdk web install the same problem appeared. The issue was with a cabinet file not being approved, which is odd considering DirectX is a microsoft app, in my case it was the november 2007 cab file. I deleted it and fired up the webinstall again, and after it downloaded the missing file all worked well.

Here's the link to the webpage that helped
