New build is available.

  • I've removed this (due to too much AVP false positives):

Hi,

I'm not using the script anymore since it stopped working with Windows 10 1803. I was only able to run MMB on one PC with Windows 10 1809. On all other systems MMB freezes on startup. The only difference between the systems is the screen resolution (1080p to 1440p).

I only have problems on the laptop with Windows 10 from enterprise image where AVP not controlled by me is running. On personal machines with both 1803 and 1809 it runs fine in most cases (sometimes there are freezes when projects being opened from zip archive, but they’re rare). I don’t think I can (and want) to make any improvement here. Usually launching MMB64 few times in a row ends up with successful launch on the problematic machine.

I thank you anyway for your efforts! I have just compared and experimented a little bit and behold, it works now after all. For reasons unknown to me, it works if MMB 64.exe is in %program files(86)%, but not if it is e.g. on D:\Test.


I'll add the last MMB setup file here in case someone just like me doesn't have any registry keys from MMB anymore and just started it from the Dropbox or from somewhere else:

Recently I have discovered that running MMB64 in Windows XP compatibility mode gives very stable result on my problematic (former problematic? ;)) machine.

Good news, everyone!

I've just uploaded a new build of the MMB64 which reports zero false positives at this moment (for AMD64 version and only 2 false positives for x86). This one might require you to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable, so if it can't find VCRUNTIME140.dll at startup you have to download redistributable package here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/downloa ... x?id=53840

Version which doesn't link VCRUNTIME140.dll dynamically reports more false positives, so I compiled it with dynamic linking. It is really annoying when Windows Defender silently removes MMB64, isn't it? ;)

Download MMB64 from the initial post of this topic.

Here's another version of MMB64 (one-time patch) which works completely different, it needs to be run only once and then you'll be able (if it will succeed) to run MMBuilder.exe in an usual way. It needs to be tested yet, so your feedback is apreciated. I tried it on two machines running Windows 10 and Server 2019 and it worked perfectly.

Thank you!

I need more feedback to see if I can replace previous version with this one.
