Can´t run carbide motion

(BH) #1

I´m experiencing problems with installation and running Carbide motion on a computer i want to use in my workshop. CC installs fine and are running. When i tried to install CM i first got the message that there was a .dll missing but this went away when installing CC. Now CM tries to start but at 26% progress i get this message:

Please send that in to

Things to try:

  • make sure you system is patched/up-to-date, esp. video and OpenGL drivers
  • uninstall any unnecessary software
  • try making a new admin account and seeing if the program will run in that

Have you tried to install it as the administrator?

I started out with a newly reinstalled windows and discovered that my network setup was blocking update downloads from microsoft so that the cumputer was not up to date. I have started the update process now but it will take some time to get to the point when I can try your suggestions. I will come back in a couple of days with a update on the progress.

FYI: I have a freshly formatted Win 8.1 tablet, with NO windows updates and the software loads and runs just fine (when installed as the administrator).

EDIT: Since this is a dedicated (Shapeoko) computer, the internet is turned OFF.

After much trial and error and a never ending stream of updates, I just right clikked the CM icon and discovered the compability check. Did run the check and when compabilitymode was set to win XP it seems to work!!!. Now CM starts without errors every time. Have not tried to connect to the machine yet, but now I´m atleast a step closer.

Thank you so much for your help!
