32-bit Problem
Hi again!  ;D

I was trying to send my game to someone for testing, and when he tried to open it, he said he got the following error:

I downloaded your game and applied the 0.4 patch. When I run "DragonBallZ - Saiyajin Legend.exe" the following error shows up and the games doesn't start:

"DragonBallZ - Saiyajin Legend.exe is not a valid Win32 application"

Is the executable a 32-bit version?


I figured that I had the 64-bit version of the miniSphere engine which I distributed along with the game, so I started to look for a 32-bit version, and couldn't find any. In fact, I couldn't find any 64-bit version as well, which made me think the installation program auto-detects your hardware type and installs the right version for you. So I let the guy download miniSphere from the sexy new Spheredev homepage, but then he said that:

I installed miniSphere (default option list) but got the following error:
Unable to execute file:
C:\Program Files\miniSphere\ide\Sphere Studio.exe

CreateProcess failed; code 3.
The system cannot find the path specified.



I re installed miniSphere, checking all options in the list, and got a different error:
Unable to execute file:
C:\Program Files\miniSphere\ide\Sphere Studio.exe


CreateProcess failed; code 193.
%1 is not a valid Win32 application


He's not the first person that tested the game, but it's the first time anyone is getting this error.

Any idea what to make of this?

If he has a 32-bit machine, then the miniSphere installer should install 32-bit executables.  What Windows version is this?  I know there have been issues in the past with XP and Vista; Win7 or later should be fine however.

Note that Sphere Studio requires .NET 4.5 or later to be installed.

I did have a problem running it on windows XP once (took it to an old computer at work to see if it's working). I'll ask him what's his OS and stuff.
