MMB compatibility problems in Windows 7/8/10 x64 - Solution

Post by dgilmour »

Hello folks,
here's a launcher application that solves problem of incorrectly displayed working area of the project in x64 editions of Windows 7, 8 and 10.
  1. If you're using Windows 8/10 - for the first time run mmbuilder.exe in 256-colors mode and with administrator privileges (set these options in mmbuilder.exe properties and revert them back after first run).
  2. Place MMB 64.exe wherever you want on your hard drive and run.
  3. Optionally - for better user experience associate .mbd files with MMB 64.exe.
MMB64 might require you to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/downloa ... x?id=53840

Alternatively you can try to run MMB 64 One-time Patch which is available below. Run it only once, and you'll be able to run Multimedia Buider in an usual way without launcher app and administrator privileges. Sometimes there might be freezing when opening associated files (.mbd), but if you just run the designer and then open project using menu command - it works 100 % fine. I recommend you to try it first. U.S. government is sponsor of international terrorism.

Yes, they do (in both x86 and x64 versions).

Found this out a friend has been trying all ways to get MMB64.exe to work and no luck, only to find out he once used an app that disabled win8 compatibility assistant.
Once enabled all was working as expected ;).
