SFML won't run in Windows 7 64-bit
« on: January 07, 2011, 09:15:39 pm »
I've just switched from XP 32-bit on to 7 64-bit and can't seem to get my projects to work anymore.  The problem is strange: the code compiles without any errors/warning but the renderwindow doesn't pop up, only the console window (which is frozen, I've tried some couts).

Oh and precompiled SFML samples run just fine.

Any thoughts?

What language are you using? Is your code compiling different due to being on x86-64, or is it forced to compile for x86?

C++.  I'm not compiling the code any differently then what I did on XP, so I'm guessing my IDE is forcing it to compile for x86 seeing as how my configuration is set to compile for Win32.

Do you have Catalyst 10.12 or 10.11 installed? This drivers are incompatible to SFML. Switch back to 10.10e.

Ahh, I do have Catalyst 10.11.  But would this prevent me from just compiling SFML programs?  I can run the precompiled samples just fine.

Using static libraries helps also.

Alright, I've reverted back to version 10.10e and I'm pleased to confirm that everything is working properly now.
