Muon1 works fine on my upstairs computer, but when I try to run it on my downstairs one, I get this:

MUON1 executed an invalid instruction in
module MUON1.EXE at 0187:0042e078.

What does it mean, and how do I fix it?

Edit: I already tried the user.txt thing outlined in another post, but that didn't solve anything.

Thanks,

Hey Nexus!

If ur DPAD is still not working, this is what we at TeAm AnandTech came up with:

[Why does the client Instantly Crash upon running it, no matter which version (background, graphical, command-line)]

* -If you use winzip to unzip the file and you have not indicated for WinZip to set the options to "Use folder names" then a crash will result The reason for this is that the "lattices" directory will not write, or populate, upon unzipping.  Without the lattices directory an instant crash will result.  The rar file seems to work fine!

Taken from The Guide to DPAD by Overkiller.

hey nexus,

could you possibly give us your system specs including OS and what version you are running along w/ whether background, command line, or graphical is running. 

thanks!

Amdxborg- I do have a lattices directory, so that isn't it.  Although it wouldn't have surprised me If I'd managed to overlook so obvious a problem.

Overkiller- I'm trying to run v4.34 on Windows 98, 64MB ram.  The thing crashes instantly whenever I try to run it, and it makes no difference whether it's the graphical, background or command-line version.
v4.33 also crashes.

Thanks for your replies.

I bet you need more RAM.  I'd recommend at least 256MB... Muon1 appeare to use a few tens of MB when running as there are quite a few particles.

By 2050 the UK government plans to phase out nuclear power and get 60% of its power from wind turbines.  Really, REALLY big wind turbines.

I have the same problem on two of my comps, with about the same configuration.  I think you should give it up.  I did Frown

win98 + 64 MB ram = Frown

Stephen- If insufficient RAM is the problem, I won't be able to do anything about it.  That horrible downstairs computer of ours is a hunk of junk, good for nothing except word processing and Excel.  For some bizarre reason my family insist on keeping it on day and night so I thought running a DC project in the background would at least accomplish something worthwhile.  Perhaps I should find something that will run on less RAM.

[DPC]Stephan202- I think I'll take your advice.

[TA]Overkiller- I know, I know.  Horrible config, but what can I do?  BTW, your DPAD guide is excellent; I had a browse through it last night.  Am I right in guessing that Overkiller and Wolfsraider are the same person ie.  you?  If so, would you be interested in a utility for easy transferral of results from non-internet computers, for your 3rd party programs list?  I wrote it when I thought I could get Muon1 to run on my shyte computer and now I have nothing to do with it.


Thanks for your replies, and happy crunching.

I'm not sure how much memory it really uses.  Here Task Manager is saying it's using 76MB, but it was just saying that Opera was using 92MB (with only 3 simple pages open), which just reduced to 12MB all of a sudden.  Very odd.  Hmm and Opera is suddenly back up to 69MB.  So I'm not sure I really trust this RAM-estimation very much.  I could put the debug onto it and see how much RAM it's _really_ trying to use...
