I just did a fresh install of Windows XP SP3 and installed all needed drivers. I downloaded CF4 30-day trial from CF website and also downloaded the additional required packages for XP users. The packages listed to donwload are:
Windows XP Users- Only required for Windows XP users.
.NET Framework 3.5 - Required for all XP users
Microsoft SQL Compact Edition (SQLCE) - Required for library tag support
Windows Media Player 11 - Required for video & DVD playback
Microsoft Speech API 5.1 - Required for Voice control - Optional
Microsoft Data Access Components 2.8 - Required for library tag support (pre XP SP2)
From what I can tell I only needed .NET Framework 3.5 and SQL Compact Edition. I installed these two packages first and installed CF4 last. No installation errors but when try to open CF4 I just get a message saying CF4 has crashed, do you want to report? No specific error code or anything.
What's wrong here guys? Thanks in advance!
Did u install .net 4.0?
