    Windower Crashes after server Maintainance 11/23/09? (1 person so far)

    Hey guys,

    Anyone else getting this? I log into PoL as normal, and when it goes to Fullscreen and it should get the purple "accept the terms blah blah" but it just comes up saying "Playonline has encountered a problem and has had to close"

    ok if I log in without the windower.

    I'm on windows 7.
    I'm running the new 3,42 beta with the hook.dll fix.
    I've taken all the plugins out.

    no change. was fine before the maintainance (as usual SE can't quite get "if it's not broke, don't fix it")

    Any thoughts?

    admin: edited thread since its a 1 time occurrence so far

    Running fine on XP with Recast pre-loaded, so I don't think it's a borked plugin.

    I have same setup as OP, load up internet explorer on msn.com and then start the launcher. Don't ask me why it works.

    Has anyone tried running FFXI in 7's Virtual machine Windows XP mode? Is it even possible to run games on that thing? Coz that might solve a lot of issues.

    If you're broke and on Windows 7, either downgrade to Vista, install v4 alpha (without plugins) or play on your PS2.

    Windows 7 needs some love, and hopefully one of us can release a new hook soon that fixes the random people's issues with it.

    If you have any old windower folders try deleting those. Had 2/3 pc's this happened to me on and that was the only thing that fixed it. I also tried unloading all plugins and it didn't help. Which lead me to deleting all windower files and doing a fresh install. Seemed to fix the problem for me. Still don't understand why but worth a shot.

    Forgot to mention the 2/3 machines it happened to me on were XP. My Vista machine worked fine but I only had 1 windower folder.

    Its a performance flop. You're better off making a XP partition to play XI off of if its bothering you that much.
