    Default Can't get OR New Year Monogame to work on Windows 10

    Hi all,

    As I mentioned in a post elsware on this forum my faithful win7 machine of many years has died.

    I installed Open Rails NewYear Monogame ( version 50 ) on a new Win10 machine. As soon as I start a route OR crashes with an error message that says I do not have access to the desktop file openrailslog.txt.

    Both the stable and unstable versions of OR run fine with no problems at all on this same machine.

    I would appreciate any help on this issue.

    Fred

    Hi Fred,I just installed the 64 bit version of MonoGame on my sons Win 10 laptop yesterday and experienced the same issue. To get MonoGame to run, I had to uncheck logging and then it ran fine. Peter

    Thanks for the info Peter.

    I unchecked logging as you suggested and everything works great now.

    Fred,You're welcome. It looks like a Win 10 issue, which I have no knowledge about. Maybe some kind soul could enlighten us on how to get the logging feature to work.Peter

    Tim,I may be wrong, but I believe that you have to download directly from Carlo's site to update .Peter

    Correct, updater only works with the OR main tree for now...download the monogame version directly from Carlo's site.

    The Update function does not apply to MonoGame version --- only the main trunk of OR
    Main Trunk versions found on this page >>> http://openrails.org/download/program/
    All versions of main code trunk found on this page >>> http://james-ross.co.uk/projects/or/builds
