RCP App running on WIndows 8.1

Post by rocket6706 »

I have an issue with the the Race capture application running on windows 8. I was running 2.4.0 previously without issue and upgraded to 2.7.0. When I launch the application it brings up a white screen that immediatley closes. I tried running as administrator without success. I tried to go back to 2.4.0 and I have the same issue. it appears something is preventing the application from fully booting. Any suggestions, or has this been solved elsewhere on the forum.

Hi, since it also stopped working with the 2.4.0 app, it appears something else changed with your Windows system that prevented the older version from running. You might try to update to the latest video drivers to see if that helps.

Ultimately, Windows 8 is obsolete and we cannot support getting it to work there. We recommend running it on Windows 10 or later.
