Cannot get retroarch to load up

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys.. I have a brand new reformated copy of Windows 7 installed on my computer.  Downloaded Retroarch and tried to load it up and it said it was missing dll files.  So I upgraded and installed my Direct X.  Tried to load it up again and it partially loads, I dont get the missing dll error, The White Retroarch program box shows up then i get an error.. Retroarch.exe has stopped working.  I cant figure out a fix.  I tried downloading the Redist file and extracted that to my Retroarch folder and still cant get the program to load up.  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Take a look at my daemontools vid mate. Ignore daemontools, well unless you want to install it ;)

 

However, with the download pack I include all the stuff you need installed on your of before you start. That should have you up and running .... P s I also have a RetroArch vid too

Hi ROCK632 i had the same problem and installed all the programs SIMPLYAUSTIN gave "btw thank you very much"  but seeing that you did a fresh install dont forget your onboard mboard drivers or graphics card drivers cause that solved my problem with retroarch. hope this helps

Exactly what .dll are you missing? You absolutely don't want to give up on retroarch as it's the best addition to HS and not to mention the bezel support for each emulator within Retroarch is so much easier to deal with then in Rocket Launcher. Retroarch is constantly evolving. Definitely a must have.

Try running retroarch from command prompt. It may give you an error message that will give some clues.

Retroarch.exe --verbose --menu

I have had massive issues with the sound in Retroarch, Again on a fresh install! all the Direct X etc etc installed, One Computer plays the sound fine and the other seems to struggle and the sound is jittery! Anyone else had this issue?
