Hello all,

I am not computer savvy and need help. I just got a new Lenovo ideapad laptop. I tried installing CGoban for windows. I can download the file and install but once it reaches 100% I receive a message saying, "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application.". When I first tried downloading the application, I received a different message saying that I was missing a msvcr100.dll file. I retrieved this file and tried again and now keep receiving the previously stated message. The msvcr100.dll file was installed from fix4dll.com. It is said to be a trusted website. I am unable to also install Tygem's application as well.

Please help my friends!!!

I have Windows 10. I also have the newest version of java. I noticed that my computer is a 64-bit operating system. Does Cgoban 3 only work with 32-bit?

The problem is not with Java. Its mostly like a problem with the installer application. You may need to find another source for your missing msvcr100.dll

I just verified the installer works on windows 10 64 bit.

If you have a JRE downloaded, you can use the .jar directly.
http://files.gokgs.com/javaBin/cgoban.jar

The installer is just a package combining a jre+jar file for windows.

The .jar file opens internet explorer and asks me if I want to open the file using that. I have no other option so I push okay and it just remains a blank page in internet explorer. It is unable to do the .jar file and the "for windows" .exe does not download all the way. It continues to have that error message.

sounds like you've got your file associations slightly messed up. it doesn't make sense to associate .jar files with Internet Explorer. You can't just double-click a .jar file and run it. Java doesn't work that way.

you'll have to use the command line
Code:
java -jar cgoban.jar

or write a small script to do that for you (then you can double-click the script.

usually, that's what the jnlp is for. It uses Java Web Start (javaws.exe). If the file associations are setup right, you should be able to double-click the cgoban.jnlp file. (download it from the same place you downloaded the cgoban.jar)

It really sounds like you need to get the OS reinstalled. You have something odd going on and shouldn't be pulling dlls off the internet.
