I am trying to help Silvermoan with his Boundless problems. (I was going to do a 'Let's play' with him on Youtube about Boundless)
To give you more information what happened so far... Silvermoan deinstalled .Net Framework 4.5.2 and installed the version .Net Framework 4.5.1 that came with the download of the game from Steam.
Still the same problem as before where he starts Boundless in Steam, then Boundlessloader.exe appears in the task manager for about 8 sec and then disappears. No logs created in the Turbulenz folder.
(On my PC everything went fine and I can see the files created in the Turbulenz folder.)
I checked also that after the Boundlessloader.exe runs the file Boundless.exe should start. On Silvermoans PC Boundless.exe never starts ! It does not show up in the Task Manager at all.
I see the large gray screen with "Welcome to Boundless!...... Click to continue" on my system, but Silvermoans system does not even get to that point. He has never seen that screen.
We also did a repair option on the files on the .Net files but still Boundless won't start.
Then we even did a total cleanup on .Net Framework as described at:
Then rebooted and reinstalled .Net Framework 4.5.1 again (under his normal Windows account but with option 'Run as Administrator'), but Boundless still does not start. At this point I am not sure anymore what we still can do to resolve this issue.
Could you please inform us what should happen in between the Boundlessloader.exe and the gray welcome screen ! What is triggered there ? (This is the point where it seems to fail)
Some answers and information that might be of use:
He is not using any funky hardware/software, nor is he using a weird username.
When he created the Turbulenz folder, it had permissions to write to it.
- I had .Net Framework 4.5.2 on my system and Boundless runs fine with .Net Framework 4.5.2
- I even deinstalled .Net 4.5.2 and tried the version .Net Framework 4.6.2 and Boundless runs fine on .Net Framework 4.6.2 also
