The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

Can't open Inkscape
« on: September 03, 2011, 09:27:30 PM »
I have uninstalled Inkscape and re-installed it four times and still get an error message when I try to open/run the program. The Message reads: The Application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000005). Click OK to close the application. I closed all programs before installing, so don't know what the problem could be. Any suggestions as to how I can solve the problem will be much appreciated.

My OS is Win7 32 bit

Thanks in advance!

Sue

Hi and welcome,
I had a look on http://inkscapeforum.com as they answer questions like this one. I found three posts relating to the error code you are getting and I will list the links here to make it easier for you to find them.
http://www.inkscapeforum.com/viewtopic. ... 005#p23328
http://www.inkscapeforum.com/viewtopic. ... 005#p24857
http://www.inkscapeforum.com/viewtopic. ... 005#p31387

I see after reading some of the above posts that the problem sometimes stopped after the computer was restarted. I did a bit of further investigating and came across this post https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/453931 in regard to bugs in Inkscape.

I hope one of the above links will help with your problems. If any other members have had the same problem I hope they will help with further information.

Thanks so much for your prompt response to my problem. I read the info at each link you provided and decided to restart my computer (the install instructions stated the re-start was not necessary). When my pc re-started it also installed several updates and when I clicked my Inkscape icon guess what happened?
It opened without a moment's hesitation :D . Now I can begin working through the tutorials for beginners!

Thanks again!

Sue
