Did you have any previous DF install (even if 'uninstalled') when you tested 4.4? Did you see the 'header art' image in the UI? Did you get any kind of 'Security warning' - 'Run' prompt?
Same thing happened for me but can't reproduce this behavior. All other functions of the app seem to work fine other than those mentioned above.
But i remembered sth, at some point driverforge4.4 didnt work once when i wanted to see the gui of it (i double click on it (3 or 5 times) but it didnt work and i didnt see it on taskmanager too), i had things to do and after a while it worked nicely, but i cant remember when/how/why, and never happened again yet.
kickarse is working on a new update to address these issues and add additional options
no i had never used or uninstalled DF install, v44 is the first one i use.
But here is a funny thing, before posting this message, i doubleclick on driverforge.exe again and vala, it didnt open. (tried many times with double clicking DriverForge.exe)
i put it in E:\1 folder with a name DriverForge.exe, and no it didnt open.
i also observed taskmanager, in taskm, DriverForge.exe shows up for a second (or less) and disappears.
as my main purpose is using this utility in livexp/bartpe, there never
a problem like that yet. (i made many many test with them), this only happens when using my os. Maybe this bugy is about 2003x64 i am using so sometimes it works in 2003x64 and sometimes it doesnt work. (ps: i know this is not for x64 environment, i double click it just to see gui)
if i find a method to reproduce the problem, i will inform.
hahaha, at the end of this message, before i press send, i double click on DriverForge.exe and it started (driverforge.ini was deleted in previous trials)
for a solution lets say, if it doesnt start, delete driverforge.ini (maybe not necessary) and deal with other things for a while, than try to start DriverForge.exe again.
