Can't get 2017R3 or 2018Rxx to run!?

Hello all.

Trying to run the last version of Xojo from 2017 and the latest from 2018 on ubuntu. Neither will run. 2018 creates another folder or somthing that is full of ascii characters but wont run. The permissions are the same for each folder as the other older versions’ folders’.

Can anyone tell me how to fix and what the cause is?

Thank you,

Are you aware that Xojo 2017r3 and newer is a 64Bit application? Is your Ubunutu Installation 32Bit or 64Bit?
Have you checked the System requirements?

Copy and pasted from there:

[quote]The Xojo IDE is 64-bit so it only runs on 64-bit versions of Linux. You can continue to build 32-bit apps as necessary.
The 64-bit IDE still needs 32-bit libraries, so refer to 64-bit Configuration for information on how install 32-bit libraries on 64-bit Linux distributions.[/quote]

And if you’re using Plugins: get the latest ones, as they have to support 64Bit. It’s required by the IDE.

Thank you for your reply.
That does make sense, but what a PIA. Now I have to set up a 64bit linux box just to compile one application. For years the only work around that Xojo has given me on a bug they have, is to compile on a linux box.

Anyway, thank you for pointing this out.
