First time install. Xojo won’t run. Splash screen comes up, green status bar gets about 1/3 of the way across (to “Loading Plugins”) then it crashes. Comes up with a standard Windows AppCrash Dialog box ("Xojo.exe has stopped working. Windows can check online for a solution to the problem).
Here is what I did:
Installed Xojo 2014r2 which I downloaded a few weeks ago. Got the above crash.
Un-Installed it. Restarted computer.
Downloaded Xojo 2014r2.1 a few minutes ago, installed it, same crash.
Re-installed Xojo 2014r2.1.
Still getting the same crash.
Windows 7 SP1 32 bit
All WindowsUpdates as of 17-Aug-2014.
Internet Explorer 11
Mozilla Firefox 24.7 ESR
ESET Nod32 Anti-Virus ver 7
Other than that, its a “plain-vanilla” Windows 7 install only a few weeks old. There isn’t much of anything installed on this computer yet.

That worked, thanks.
I tried adding the plugins one at a time. The only one that works on this machine is “ODBCPlugin”. Having any of the other Plugins in there will crash the App.
I thought of something – this is an older machine. Single-Core AthlonXP 3000+ with 2 Gigs of RAM (DDR-400). Perhaps the DataBase plugins require a more modern CPU? Maybe needs Dual-Core, or NX (No-Execute), or some other feature not found on a 9-10 year old CPU.
If that is true, might be a good thing for the Xojo folks to add to System Requirements.
I tried Xojo on another machine (Win 8.1 64bit with Intel i7) and it works fine with all the plugins.
Oh, and to answer your question, it was installed to the default location on the “problem” computer:
C:\Program Files\Xojo\Xojo 2014r2.1
More important than the hardware is the OS. Microsoft changed the Windows memory management significantly after XP which causes some stability issues with programs written with more modern OS’s in mind.
