X1 Window Won't Draw

Postby mitanc » Fri Nov 18, 2011 1:14 am


After using X1 for nearly a year this morning the computer did a windows update and X1 stopped working.

See the attached image to see whats going on:



Windows 7 Professional - Very basic install, only office, Google Chrome, Firefox. It is my office computer and I try to keep the system clean.

Steps Taken:
1. I have uninstalled X1 completely and not saved the settings.
2. Purchased the new X1 latest stable version
3. Reinstalled X1
*** This didn't end up working, same result

After this, I did a full uninstall following the guide in the forums using the tool which will take out registry keys and delete any lingering files. Again reinstalled and had no luck.

Last I heard there could be an issue with dotnet install, so I verified all system files using the CMD prompt as administrator and all files were fine, so nothing ended up working. Can someone chime in with some advice?

My first port of call when facing display issues like this is to see if there are new drivers for the graphics card.

As you referred to a Windows Update, that would certainly be worth pursuing.

It may just be that X1 is the first bit of software to display these anomalies.
X1 Search 8.6.1 - Build 6003fa (64-bit)
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit | Windows 10 Home 32-bit
No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.
