Capture worked well before, but not after, Win 10 Update to 1803
Permalink   
 


My capture of Freeciv 2.5.9 worked great all last week and yesterday. I was winning! :) Last night, Windows 10 updated to version 1803. Now my Freeciv captures (2.5.9 and earlier) do not open. They do install the sandbox folder as usual, but then nothing. I tried removing the Freeciv app, and that removed OK. It looked like it was loading as normal when I tried to run it again, until it just did not open the game. Other captures I have tried today work OK. This is an FYI that the Win 10 update to version 1803 can cause a problem with some previous captures.

I installed the newer version 2.5.11 of Freeciv a few minutes ago. The installed software ran properly. However, the Freeciv capture had the same problem. It looked like it was loading, and it created the sandbox folder OK, but the game would not open. Previous Cameyo captures of all the earlier Freeciv versions worked well, until Windows 10 updated to version 1803 last night. Freeciv could be a dead canary in the coal mine to show a new conflict between Windows 10 and Cameyo.

Good news, sort of. Cameyo captures made on Windows 10 1803 work well, but only on a computer not yet updated to 1803. I copied Freeciv 2.5.11.Cameyo.exe (captured on the computer that had been updated to 1803) to a flash drive, and ran that capture on a computer that is not yet updated. The capture worked OK, and the game opened as expected. The continuing bad news is that the capture copied to the flash drive (with the sandbox folder created by the not yet updated computer), and run on two computers updated to 1803, begins to load but the game would not open. My conclusion is that Cameyo will capture OK in Windows 10 updated to 1803, but then Freeciv (and perhaps other captures) will not run properly under Windows 10 version 1803 (Build 17134.1). A download link for Freeciv 2.5.11 is copied below for anyone who wants to confirm that this is a problem with a Cameyo capture not running properly under Windows 1803. Thanks!
