I have a academic license of MathCad Prime 2.0, and I had it install on this HP EliteBook 8740w laptop in question.
Few days ago I did a clean install of win 8 64-bit on the same laptop, and installed Prime 2.0 again from DVD. However now the program wons start, it just flashes an error window, of which I managed to take a screen capture.
Now I tried repairing the istallation without any luck. The setup.exe always offers new installation.
I also tried repairing with PrimeWixInstaller_64bit.exe, which tells me it's repairing the installation, but the results are the same - the Prime won't start after this.
I tried both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, no luck.
I tried another laptop, and it works ok.
The error log is attached.
Any ideas, how to get my prime working again?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I installed quite a lot of windows updates, including one .NET update, and suddenly the Prime was working perfectly. So I'm pretty sure it was the .NET that was causing this.
I tried installing with my virus protection turned off before, but it did not make any difference. Thanks!
