All,

After installing DataWarrior 5.5, the application simply does not run on a Windows 10 system. Some investigation does show that it is erroring out, but the only indication with no detail is in the Windows event logs (the generic BEX64 error).

We have attempted to run with elevated permissions with the same result. We have also reinstalled the application with no luck. We can also confirm that antivirus software is not reporting any issues relating to DataWarrior.

Any further suggestions/advice would be appreciated.

Do you see any messages, when starting DataWarrior.exe from the command line?
Did you check the MD5 sum of the msi?
Did you make sure that none of the exe, dll, or jar files in the DataWarrior directory are blocked in the file properties dialog?
You may download a debug version 'DataWarrior_d.exe' from openmolecules.org/datawarrior/dw500_d.zip. Then unpack and copy these files into the DataWarrior installation directory. Make sure, none of the new files is blocked. Then start DataWarrior_d.exe from the command line. Any messages?

Thomas

Unfortunately it looks like despite the attempt to execute in both elevated and non-elevated CMD the application still does not open. The debug download link appears to either be dead or has been moved. Is there another location where that version of the application can be pulled from? i.e. the GitHub page or another page on the site etc?

The GitHub page[1] you refer to is going to be valuable if you know how to convert the source code into an executable. Else, use the installer suitable for your operational system from the download page.[2] And note that there are three, each for only one of Linux .or. Mac .or Windows.

Speaking of such (Linux) and the weekend ahead, an alternative approach could be the installation of a Linux distribution (e.g., xubuntu), side-by-side to your Windows operating system, or on top of WSL[3] which then would be the platform to run DataWarrior instead. (In this case, using these environments, you would elect DataWarrior's installer /for Linux/.)
