[Solved] Elephant Won't Start

Hi,

     I just installed Elephant on an old Windows tablet I have that is running a 32 bit version of Windows 10 (it was updated after the Fall 2017 Creator update).  Even though I ran the installer as Administrator, and try to run Elephant as Administrator, it does not start.  My Surface Dial is paired and working.

     Could this not be working because I input my license info before first running Elephant?  If not, do you have any other ideas why this would not work?  Perhaps the program does not work in 32 bit Windows?

     Thanks!

Hello.
I never test with windows 32 bits, my fault, I not use win32,  is really uncommon at this days found somebody using windows 32 bits in the music/audio domain.
I already updated the system requirements to windows 64bit on the Elephant page.

After run the software what error you see?
In the task manager the app is running after open the app?

If press escape keyboard  twice as is indicated on the instructions, the software open?
Are you sure after run you not press the dial and keep the dial pressed closing the software?
Already see the warning on the user guide related to that?

There is a chance to install 64 bit version of windows on that tablet?
I cant confirm that is the issue, so this should be the latest thing to try.

Thank you for responding so quickly!

I don't see any error when running the software - nothing happens at all.  Nothing is in the task manager, and I haven't pressed the dial once I double click on the icon to start the program :(.

Unfortunately, I can't install a 64 bit version of Windows on this tablet (the processor won't support it).  I have another tablet on which I (happily) use Elephant, and was hoping to install it here, too.  If not, that's okay.

I suppose there is no 32 bit emulator that you could try the program on?  Perhaps it is not a large project to make a 32 bit version?  I can't imagine that Elephant needs a lot of memory, so maybe most of the code could work equally well on a 32 bit platform?

Thanks again for your help!
