HELI-X7 wont start

Post by gmkramer » 21 Jan 2018 20:56

Just downloaded Version X7 and when I try to load it, I immediately get the message:

The module "msxml4.dll" failed to load.

Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debut it to check for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.

A dynamic link library (DLL) initialization routine failed.


Any ideas as to how to fix this problem?

Strange. I found this web site where this problem is discussed:

Did you have this problem also with an earlier version of HELI-X?

I scanned my laptop and found no problems. I uninstalled both X6 and x7 and reinstalled X7 and get the following error message when I try to start the program:

Unable to execute file c:\heli-x7\run heli-x.bat

Shell ExecuteEx failed code -2147467262.

No such interface supported.

Can you try to start as an administrator („run as“)? does it work then?

I found that if I go to the command prompt in c:\heli-x7 and type .\runheli-x the program works.

How can I change the bat file or any other files so I dont have to go to the command prompt every time I want to run the program?

Perhaps look at the porperties (right mouse button) of the start icon. There is also a security tab ...

I think it's a permissions problem (missing access rights).
Confusing that works in command box. This means that the installation and the batch file (runHELI-X.bat) is ok.

Only the link from Desktop (HELI-X7) can not be executed. Bad link, no access rights to run file, why not?

Please rename the original link (HELI-X7) on the desktop (maybe to HELI-X7 BAD). Make a COPY of the batch file (C: \ HELI-X7 \ runHELI-X.bat) on the desktop. Start this COPY now. Is working?
If that works, create a LINK from batch file (C: \ HELI-X7 \ runHELI-X.bat) to the desktop. Start the LINK now. Is working?

Neither of these last 2 suggestions worked. Now, when I do get the program to load, it recognizes that I have a controller attached but moving the sticks does nothing (yes, I tried to calibrate it but that doesnt work)
