Re: Failed to launch - again

Try - Right clicking on the graph and uncheck "Border". See if that fixes it.

Re: Failed to launch - again

I enclosed,

This happened when Createmesh function apeear on the screen.

but problem is not connected with file.

When I have use of quick sheets for example I have received this message also.

Re: Failed to launch - again

The create mess function seemed fine when opening in M14.

Just to clarify - Did you have a problem with the sheet you posted.

Worksheet re-attached without boarder.

Re: Failed to launch - again

Thank you for rewrite file.

I have checked but still the same, without any progress.

As I wrote I have had general problem with 3D plot and this horrible message.



>>>Just to clarify - Did you have a problem with the sheet you posted.

...only with 3D plot section, when I remove 3D plot part, problem disapear.

Re: Failed to launch - again

As I said, when opened in Mathcad 14 the 3D plot seemed ok.

I haven't got M15, but maybe a collab who has could try opening and see if they get any problems.

It worked ok in my version of M15 once I'd removed the border from the 3D plot. I didn't get any error messages though, at any time - neither before nor after unticking the border. Perhaps it's graphics card related.

Which OS are you using?

WinXP SP3,

Re: Failed to launch - again

Try repairing the installation. With Mathcad 15 unfortunately that may not work. If I try a repair it just exits without doding anything. If that happens to you you will have to unistall and reinstall.

Cheers Alan,

Strange issue this.

Re: Failed to launch - again

It seems that there are some dll that mathcad can't found to fire 3d plots, which actually are external components embeded in the worksheet. A hard way to check your installation, and that also don't guareantee sucess is using a dependence check for the dll's in the mathcad directory. You can found one of this kind of programs in http://www.dependencywalker.com/ Check if have a command line option to check all files in a directory and see results for missing dependences in a log output.

Hope this helps, but it is a really hard way to solve your problem.

Regards. Alvaro.

Re: Failed to launch - again

Thank you Alvaro, I appreciate your efforts.
After few minutes I will try to reinstall my Mathcad.

wzel

Re: Failed to launch - again

I should start from complete reinstallation!

Yesterday I tried to overwrite existing version (15) by the same version, ...without success as you know.

Today...
1. install Mathcad 14
2. upgrade to Mathcad 15

...and it seems that problem disappear.

One way or another I'd like to thank everyone who tried helps me!!!

Best Regards

wzel
