The MewI have tried all this and it still doesn’t work. I do however have a 2080ti and a 1080 installed in the system so the 1080 being in the system may be the cause? But I have tried running PX1 with the 1080 removed from the system and it still will not open.
The MewI have a fresh install of windows and have tried every available version of PX1. After installing I attempt to open PX1 but it only appears in task manager briefly before disappearing and not opening at all. There also is no crash log folder in the program files folder. Anyone know how to fix this? Trying this with a 2080 ti FTW3
bob16314Does PX1 fail to run from the Desktop shortcut, or with Windows if you set it to 'Start with OS' in the settings, or both?
bob16314Let me guess..You're running Windows 10 Pro?
bob16314A couple things. See if there's been any Windows 10 Updates that may be causing it..Action Center (System Tray, near Clock) -> All settings -> Update & security -> Update history..Uninstall (if possible) any that coincide with the problem and then restart your PC.Uninstall Precision XOC..Restart your PC..Delete the Precision XOC folder located in the Program Files (x86)\EVGA folder..Delete EVGAPrecisionX from the Task Scheduler Library if it exists..Restart your PC again..Install and set up Precision XOC again..Enable 'Start With OS' in the General Settings options (gear icon, bottom-right of Precision XOC)..I would do this first if you haven't already. To open Task Scheduler, press the Windows + R keys to open Run, then type Taskschd.msc into the box, and then OK.Roll from there.
bob16314Thought so..I think it may be a permissions issue that has happened before to other people running Win10 Pro. Right-click on the PX18.exe in the Program Files\EVGA\Precision X1 folder and go to the Properties, then the Security tab and make sure the user has permissions..Edit the permissions to give full control if not..See how that rolls. I would disregard that post I made and you quoted above, for now..They're two different versions in different locations.
bob16314You could try Revo Uninstaller (Free) to uninstall PX1..Use the Advanced Mode after uninstall completes to scan for and delete the leftover registry entries* and program files/folders that are found..Then restart your PC and install PX1 again. Other than that, hmmm. *WARNING!: Delete only the registry entries shown in bold text in Revo.
bob16314Maybe we'll get this figured out yet.If the above suggestion don't work, set Windows to 'Show hidden files, folders, and drives' in the folder View options.Open the user.cfg file (with Notepad) that's named and located similarly to mine in the C:\Users\Robert\AppData\Local\EVGA_Co.,_Ltd\PX18.exe_Url_o1iyvefks0podyj3z1ruu2zk5ljostmb\0.3.9.0 folder.Under the <PX18.Properties.Settings> near the top, change both of the 'True' entries shown below to 'False' if they are not already..Close and save the changes..Then try opening PX1 again.<setting name="General_StartMinimized" serializeAs="String"> <value>True</value><setting name="IsOsd" serializeAs="String"> <value>True</value>Or, just delete the user.cfg file which will be recreated the next time PX1 runs.I see that the user.cfg file remains after uninstalling PX1 (which has been an ongoing issue for many versions now) and even Revo won't recognize it..Having OSD enabled at PX1 startup has been known to be an issue and I suspect that's the problem.
bob16314That's all that's in the user.cfg file?..That's not cool at all.I still think it's a permissions issue with Win10 Pro..Read a little farther down in this thread.You may need to give the .cfg files write permission.Here is a copy of my user.cfg file I put on my OneDrive page for you..You might try replacing yours with mine and set how it rolls..It's in a stock, unadulterated configuration from a clean install of PX1 v0.3.9 BETA with OSD and Start Minimized disabled.
bob16314We tried..Hope you get it figured out..Post back if you do..Good luck.
