Description pingudiem 2013-10-31 07:17:25 UTC

I installed XS 4.0.13 with GTk 2.12.22 and .NET 4.0 3-4times and restarted my pc in between, because XS just didnt start up after installing.  At random at the like 5th installation it worked but I could not update anything related to GTK. 
After debugging some stuff this error occured (see attachement, sorry its in german! i hope the error code helps for the translation or the understanding).  Colleagues suggested reinstallation of XS and GTK and .NET. What I did. But now it is the same issue as before. 

After Installing XS and double clicking the .exe my mouse cursor shows that something is loading and after like 1second it just stops and nothing happens.

What version of Windows? Can you attach the log file from AppData\Local\XamarinStudio-4.0\Logs?
Comment 3 pingudiem 2013-11-01 18:29:03 UTC
Win7 x64  

sadly I can not. I completely wiped my pc to create enough space to install Visual Studio. I am sorry but I really needed a plug and play working solution. If you really want the logs I think I can reproduce the problem.

If you have space to install XS that would be great, though I'd guess that if you formatted your PC then the cause of the error may be gone. I'll leave the bug open but NEEDINFO for now, so if you or someone else encounters the issue again we can investigate.

Been over a year here, closing the bug.
