MCell Problem

Post by Saka » June 23rd, 2017, 2:36 am

Hello, I installed MCell installer and saw the glorious old-fashion download thingy. But now I can't open it because of this error:

Code: Select all

Exception EOleSysError in module MCell.exe at 000FD8D1
Error accessing the OLE registry
Please help me. I want to try out MCell's features, especially Larger Than Life, Margolus, and Special Rules.

On my Win7 system I run MCell in compatability mode (specifically Win XP SP3). I tried running natively again and it works now, so I can't confirm if I had the same error, but I remember something about the registry causing the problem. May be there's something MCell does the first time it runs which causes the problem.
