I downloaded and installed SimVim panel on my Windows 10 64 bit. Whenever I try to start it it locks up the PC...have tried many things including running as administrator? Will the panel system run on 64bit WIndows?

The program is compiled for Windows as a 32-bit exe, but I see no reason why it wouldn't work on a 64-bit system. We've tested it on several Windows systems, and it worked without problem every time (clean 64-bit Windows 10 included).

I could compile it as a 64-bit exe too, it was just never necessary so far.

Thanks Roman...

Is there a log or other file I can use to trouble shoot? I have run it as administrator, I have run it in compatibility mode, I have used the windows troubleshooter and it's recommended settings, nothing seems to be working. It locks the machine up immediately.

I can run the panel on windows 10 64bits without any problem, but it crash when I tried to open on windows 7.

Is it compatible with w7 and w xp ?

Best regards
I have the same problem with Windows10 64bits. Did you solve it?

No, I gave up...
I tried a lot of configurations to run all 32bit programs on 64bits, I read to a lot of info about OpenGL, but I can’t fix it. When I open the .exe filé the screen locks up

OK, I've made a 64-bit version of the program for Windows, and it's now available as a separate download.

For me, both versions work when tested on a 64-bit Windows 10.

Thank you for your time and availability Roman.

Now, I can open the .exe file without problem and the screen don't locks up, but all the image is black. I really don't know what is happening :(

Create a "settings.ini" file in the program's folder, if it wasn't already created, and add the line "Debug = 1" there. Launch the program. Then exit, and see the "debug.txt" file created in the same folder. It may be an issue with screen size detection.
