Title: Cannot start Beersmith wxWidgets Debug Alert
Post by: danmidgley on November 20, 2016, 01:55:01 AM
Have included a screenshot here, on Windows 7 with latest updates and patches. Anyone experienced anything similar?

EDIT: Resolved with a restart!

Just installed the trial version and got the exact same error. Uninstalled/reinstalled, restarted but still getting the error. Any suggestions?

  A few possibilities:
   - Some antivirus programs like Bitdefender have been blocking BeerSmith from reading/writing the hard drive which can cause this kind of crash.  White list BeerSmith if you are using an antivirus program.
   - One user also recently had problems with OneDrive which was changing permissions on Documents/BeerSmith2 and causing it to not be able to read/write to the drive.

I have the same message.  If I cancel, program won't start (neither no).  My antivirus is not blocking beersmith I put it on the white list.  Desinstall & reinstall without success, restart didn't solve it.
very frustating.... (on window 10)

Any suggestion.
PS work on my other computer (with window 10)

I have the same problem and I'm running Windows 10. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and made sure BeerSmith is white listed and given it all the firewall permisions it needs. I still can't get the links in the program to activate. Any thoughts?
