Dxtory will not launch (The exception was generated...)
« on: November 28, 2014, 03:47:57 pm »
Dxtory was working fine before, but now in the past few days something has changed which now makes Dxtory not launch at all.
I'm running Dxtory 2.0.126, but I tried 2.0.128 and I had the same issue. I'm also running AMD Catalyst version 13.12, to avoid the performance issues with 14.x.




Solution:

If you're running Windows 7/8/8.1 64-bit, there is a fix for this issue:

It is because the module which performs UI customization is installed.

I am experiencing the exact same problem. What do I need to do to fix it ? It worked perfectly a couple of days ago?

I think what Exkoder is saying is that some of the 3rd party windows mods can cause this.
So try to disable things like : Rainmeter, Samurize, Object Desktop, Windows Blinds ( Stardock programs ),  or maybe its just some windows tweaks.
( Thats my best guess as of right now )

Here is a similar thread for a little extra info

Using Windows 10 ?  Try the latest version first http://exkode.com/dxtory-downloads-en.html

The similar thread kind of helped but i still don't understand what to do to fix it since i have none of those programs. Since the last time I ran Dxtory all I have done was install Abobe CS6 products and Qucktime so I can edit and watch my videos.

I wish the developer would have expanded on what he meant, instead of being a bit vague.

I hope he explains it more too. I am really getting screwed over by this.

The developer needs to give us some clear feedback paid for the software and its not working. Worst of all is I have no customisation installed

I checked my system again. Is anyone running the latest Nvidia drivers ? This is the only thing that changed on my system and I suspect that DXtory is not compatible.

I'm with AMD, and I'm running drivers that are outdated so that Dxtory would run properly. For a while it was working fine, but then this happened. I literally have no idea what's causing this, I haven't installed anything of merit in the last week

It is because the module which performs UI customization is installed.

Could you please tell me what "module" this is?
