In my long career as an ITC man, since 1980, I learned that all problems are eventually solved.
Unfortunately, removing the "dot" did not bring any relief.
I am very grateful to you for the many efforts you have done and done for us.
Regards
Hans

I'll see if I can replicate the issue shortly.

Until then..
Maybe you can compare the files you have in the 2 folders mentioned above, with the files of somebody that has this working.

Im confident it should be an easy fix, once we find the issue.

The strange thing about the whole thing is that in the past ESJFS2018 ran on my laptop without any problems as easily as at the moment of my desktop.
I copied the files 1 to 1 to the laptop, unfortunately .......

I think the problem is deeper in Windows.

With the tool EasyClean I regularly cleaned the registers.

Tomorrow or the day after tomorrow I will put back a parents image of the made laptop and see if everything goes "normal" again.
I'll keep you informed

Have a nice weekend

regards

Hans

I wouldnt mess about too much with windows if everything else works.

ESJFS does not install anything.
It just needs 2 files to work.
1. ESJFS2018.exe
2. ESJFS2018.exe.config

There will be a registry entry for it once it is run, as with all programs.

I would try the following..
1. Delete the ESJFS folder and everything in it.
2. Run your registry cleaner (Ccleaner or similar).
3. Download ESJFS2018 again.
4. Extract to your desktop.
5. Try and run the app again.

I think this is an error reading a file.
This could be a file permission error (unlikely but possible) or more likely the file it's trying to read isn't there at all.
For Example the Latest MET file is downloaded from the internet.
I'm not sure if I added a check if that failed.

I'll perform some testing shortly.

I can't replicate it Jopie_60.

So I'm going to add an error message box which will pop up when there's an issue opening the app.

That should then tell us why you're having issues.

I'll post it here shortly.

I've uploaded a new version V2.1.01

This version is the same as the previous version, only it now logs errors in a log file.
The log file is situated in the same folder the app was started from.

A message box should also appear if the program fails to load for what ever reason.

Good morning,
Good news, bad news.
What have I done?
Everything removed with the help of REGEDIT from ESJFS2018 and Bitdefender.
Reboot laptop and a new download from ESJFS2018.
After installation of ESJFS2018 launch as admin.
This time the hourglass did not disappear after a few seconds but an error message appeared on my screen.
ESJFS2018 has to run stand-alone in combination with JoinFS and Euroscope, therefore WITHOUT a flight simulator.
Perhaps you can let your light shine on this.
I suspect that the disappearance of the hourglass after a few seconds lay in one of Bitdefender's registers and that they were not cleaned.

Succces and regards

Hans

Ah haaa!

It's looking for Simconnect on load for some reason.

I've just removed simconnect from my system and got the same error, great.

You'll need to give me some time to look over the code and change a few things.

Until then you can install Simconnect Only with no need to install the whole simulator.

Simconnect Download.

Just run the SimConnect.msi installer in the XPACK folder to install SimConnect.

Together we are strong but above all patient.
This almost reminds me of 40 years ago:
Try and error.
I always found the worst when I could not reproduce an error.
Good luck
