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#p24857

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
