Confedit error

Post by Freezepond » Wed Dec 18, 2013 5:30 am

So, I was going to download confedit a while ago, but then this error occured when I tried to run it.
I have the file it says I am missing, it is even in the folder with Confedit.EXE.
I used to have this program back in 2006 when I had Windows XP, and it worked fine back then, so this is most likely a compatability error.

Could at Artsoft consider making an updated version of Confedit?

Unfortunately, you're right (just tested it by myself): Although it always ran fine on Windows XP, it refuses to start on Windows 7 (with a different error message, but also complaining about an included OCX file).

The problem is that I do not have the source code of this old VisualBasic program (which was written by Alan Bond), so I cannot create a new version that runs on newer versions of Windows that XP.

As removing the program from my site seems not really an option (as this program is truely genius when it comes to working with artwork config files), I should add a note that it should be run in an XP VM.
