Hi,

I could build the "World" on vista. I am able to boot it from Virtual PC.But, I am having problems with my debugger. I am not able to start the debugger. When I start the debugger, I see an error message "the command line arguments cannot specify more than one kind of debugging to start".This is the only problem I have been facing with Vista.

On my Vista it crashes during build.
I got these errors:

Hi Christian, thanks for writing about your build trouble. The developers of Singularity regularly built on Vista during development, so it ought to work. This is just a hunch, but I suspect the number sign (#) in your build path may have something to do with it - try installing Singularity to a different directory. Also, make sure you have the necessary prerequisites; the .NET Framework 1.1 is required and is available from:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=262d25e3-f589-4842-8157-034d1e7cf3a3&displaylang=en

We also haven't experimented with the German version of the build tools, but I don't expect this to make a difference. I hope this helps. Write back if you're still encountering trouble.

I installed it in another directory now and I installed .net Framework 1.1 and it works. I'm a bit confused now, because I thought you can still use older application with .net 3.5... Just like you can still run a .net 2.0 application using 3.5...

That's an understandable confusion generated by the .NET Framework branding. In reality the .NET Framework 3.0 is just the .NET Framework 2.0 with some additional components, so the base class libraries are the same. The .NET Framework 1.1, however, has a different set of base class libraries and runtime environment, and the 2.0 Framework does not provide backwards compatibility (but does provide support for side-by-side installation).

Hello Derrick,

I just want to confirm that your advice is correct given Christian24's symptoms.
I experienced the same errors as Christian24 due to having the Singularity root
on a logical drive partition.

Solution: Install Singularity to bootable HDD root and rebuild.

The build was successful on the first attempt.

Thanks for your Help,

Hello,

my installation in Vista, logged-on as admin, stops at a very early point: I have singularity unpacked in a directory on the desktop. when I execute the configure.cmd and, after been asked for it, press Enter to start the configuration, there appears the following:

(...)
This script will configure Singularity RDK build to the
following location:

        C:\Users\S~YO~sarang\Desktop\singularity-6709\

Press ENTER to start...

 

*** ERROR: A problem occurred while creating the shortcut.

Hi xyen. It's not sufficient to just log on as Administrator. You have to run an elevated command prompt by right-clicking on it and choosing "Run this program as an administrator". It should say "Administrator:" in the title bar of the command window. Let me know if you do this (or are already doing this) and still encounter problems.

Thank you, that's it. The short-cut has appeared on the desktop.
... And now, Singularity is running.
