EZClient obviously doesn't work when one has a dual core processor (AMD X2 4400+ in my case).
I searched the internet and noticed many people are having the same problem: EZclient.exe simply won't launch.
So what to do? This really sucks because I would like to replace the games that are currently on my EZFlash system..
Maybe the programmers of EZClient can make a hack so it will work?
That would be great! Thanks!
By the way: EZClient is the only program so far that doesn't work with my new dual core processor, ALL other programs I use (and that's a lot) do function just like they did on my previous single core processor..
I reallu dont know then and this is a pretty big problem. I think you'll just have to wait until which time the EZ team is able to accomodate you. Now, as these computers are getting more and more common I am sure that a solution will be found. If I see anything useful I'll post! Good luck.
well, actually I concluded myself that the problem had to do with a dual core processor. This, because in one of the links (threads) posted above, someone has only updgraded his processor, and EZClient doesn't work anymore.
Also my own case: EZClient worked well with my old computer. On my new computer (which has a dual core proc. now), I used exactly the same installation for Windows XP SP2, and the rest of my software and programs are also almost the same as on my previous PC, so that's why I thought this is a hardware related issue. But Slade just proved it isn't./..
But what could then be the problem? This really sucks!
BTW Scrawl, I'm referring to EZClient 3.25 (also tried some older versions).

The most common problem I have had with EZ clients not launching is improperly edited game lists, but it still at leasts gives a MFC or similar error report. Some things to try (in case you haven't thought of these):
If you are getting a MFC error when it starts (ie: a window does show up when you try to run it) make sure you have everything in the original form and try again.
Make sure the path you have it installed to has no spaces in the names. I have the latest one installed to
Try running it in compatibility mode (right click the actual exe, not a shortcut, select the compatibility tab and check the box and use the drop down to pick a mode like win95 or win98). This should force it to use a memory model/environment to run in that is not affected by dual core (though I was never too clear on what types of things compatibility mode changed to make stuff run differently).
All else failing... a minimal win95/98 install in vmware might be able to run it.
If you think there may be a problem with the dual core processor, have you tried setting the affinity so that the EZ4 Client only runs on one core? This may be something to at least try. Here's a good guide on how to set the affinity on a none running app, fix #4 is the one you want:
