fbide.exe-Application Error FIXED

Post by BasicCoder2 »

Anyone experience this? On clicking the FBide icon either on the desktop or start bar this window pops up.

fbide.exe-Application Error
[X] The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142).
Click to close the application. [ OK ]

For a while I "fixed" it by turning the computer off and restarting windows11 but now it seems permanent?
I also tried clicking the icon in the folder in which the app is stored. Same error.

The fix is to replace this old file with a newer one, as described below by Sebastian:

I saw the issue on a Windows 7 x64 PC recently.

In that case the problem was related to the obviously very old "mingwm10.dll" included with the FBIDE download. I downloaded a newer version of the DLL from the MingW sourceforge site and replaced FBIDE's "mingwm10.dll" with the file of the same name contained in the download ("bin" subfolder):

https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/ ... z/download

In my case it looks like this:

Moreover, make sure to have the MSVCRT runtime library installed. (Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable)

Best regards,

Often, I get a similar error message (error 0xc0000005), at any FBIde execution attempt (versions 0.4, 0.4.3, 0.4.6) after a PC boot.
Generally, closing then opening a new Windows session is sufficient to solve the problem, but sometimes a full reboot is required.
Remark: by cons, the oldest version "FBIde v0.3.3a" is always working!
Now with Win 10, I very rarely have such an error message when launching FBIde with Win10.
The next time I get it, I will exchange the 2 mingwm10.dll files without restarting the computer, to test your solution.
