I think that my friend got it to work for Win10. I'll drop him a message and ask.

It went through the install process with me when I started it up. Did it try that with you?

I don't remember that effect... in current state it ends up loading the initial splash screens and then taking really really long then throwing an error saying something about a broken or invalid xaml

Well, after consulting with my friend (who had it running on Win10), he has apparently had issues with other conflicts on his system and has reverted to Win 8.1, so I can't consult with him for technical advice on how to make it work.

I have it on my Win7 laptop and also on the WinXP virtual machine on my MacBook. Works fine with both of those.

Something about the Xaml... that means it is a dot Net issue, I would think hmmmmm

here may be the issue.. Windows 10 comes with .NET framework 4.5 pre-installed, but many apps developed in Vista and Windows 7 era require the .NET framework v3.5 installed along with 4.5. These apps will not run unless you will install the required version. When you try to run any such app, Windows 10 will prompt you to download and install .NET framework 3.5 from the Internet.

Have you checked if the .NET Framework 3 feature is enabled? In Windows 10 you may have to manually enable it:
a) Press “Windows Logo” + “R” keys on the keyboard.
b) Type “appwiz.cpl” in the “Run” command box and press “ENTER”.
c) In the “Programs and Features” window, click on the link “Turn Windows features on or off”.
d) Check if the “.NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)” option is available in it.
e) If yes, then enable it and then click on “OK”.
f) Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation and restart the computer, if prompted.

I upgraded to Windows 10 last night. Confirmed that the .Net Framework was enabled, opened CBLoader, all good! So I guess I can confirm, character builder works in Windows 10.

Durriken,
Have you tried the old Offline Adventure Tools in Windows 10 yet? Because, if they work, I'm conscidering switching to Windows 10. If not, no switching will happen. Let me know if it works or not.

Thanks:)

GF

I'm afraid I don't have the offline adventure tools... Sad
If I did, I would certainly find a way to get them working.

GF,

If you have the installers and updates through July 2010, I would be more than happy to give it a go. I've tried looking for the files but there is just so much crap out there that is not what it says it is that it is not worth the time to try and find a reputable source.

Thanks,
TjD

I just saw this thread and was going to share what I have. I have two zip files. One is "4e Adventure tools" and the other is "4E adventure tools update Dec 2010". I opened both of them and fiddled with the contents, but couldn't get anything to work. So if you come up with a solution, that would be awesome!

Adventure Tools appear to be working fine. Haven't tried every function, but nothing seems broken. After install and running the 2 updates, the first run crashed, but the second time I ran as administrator and it worked fine. After that, no need to run as admin.
It does require .Net 3.5 SP1, so you will have to manual enable that, but the CB requires that as well.

Durriken,

I'm testing out Win10 on my Parent's Win8.1 Compy. Having a Reading Error when I try to use the CB Install file. Adventure Tools seem to be working though. I managed to install it and it worked first time. Did you use the CB File I uploaded or one from else where? Mine seems to be not working at all. Also, what did you Upgrade from, Win7 or Win 8.1?

GF

I upgraded from Windows 8.1. CB was already installed per the directions I put in another thread when I upgraded and continued to work fine. I always use a custom install path. This seems to be more of a 64 bit vs 32 bit issue. CB doesn't seem to like "Program Files (x86)" . And you need to put the latest update on it, not just use the latest full installer. Then CBLoader.
Did you check that .NET Framework 2/3/3.5 were on there? I'm guessing they are if Adventure Tools are working.
