Love2D Doesnt run in Windows 10 [SOLVED]

Post by Darlex » Sat Oct 20, 2018 5:51 pm

Hello! I have a serious problem! The love.exe file doesnt run, I tried with lovec.exe but doesnt worked
I tried with Microsoft's compatibility solver, But i got negative results :/
I have Windows 10 Education N 1809 installed (and i hate it)
Somebody can help me? Please?

Edit:
Love2D literally doesnt run at any way, No error screen, No black screen, No Window, Nothing
I can run games like MARI0, Trosh, ETC. But i cant open the love2d executable

Can you elaborate on "doesn't run"? Could you tell us if an error message pops up when you try to run it, or nothing at all?

Literally nothing
what do you mean specifically? A window that is just black? No window or anything at all?
"Nothing" can mean a bunch of things.

Furthermore what update are you using? 1809?
Have you tried updating your GPU drivers?

Next question, or rather, do these things to debug further:

get the command line open
navigate to where löve is (cd /d drive:/folders/)
type lovec.exe and love.exe after the first exited
take a screenshot of that and share.

It seems that LÖVE has trouble running on Windows 10 with Update 1809 installed. (this Thread describes it)

Possible Solution: Use a Dev-Version. For me, this 32Bit-Dev-Version works without problems:

Yeah 1809 does not work with Löve's latest release (11.1), there's been a lot of talk about it over on the discord. It is planned to release 11.2 with a fix for the Windows issue in the near future from what I heard on the Discord, the reason why it hasn't happened yet is probably because of the Mac OS mojave issues or some other major fix that slime wants in there as well
