Expression Design 4 does not start up RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

     

    Expression Design 4 does not start. 

     

    I installed Expression Studio 4 Ultimate on my Windows 7 machine. Expression Blend works fine. Visual Studio 2010 works fine.

     

    The event log says

     

    Tillämpningsprogram: Design.exe

    Framework-version: v4.0.30319

    Beskrivning: Processen avslutades på grund av ett ohanterat undantag. -> translation: "Process finished because of an unhandled exception"

    Undantagsinformation: System.IO.FileNotFoundException

    Stack:

       vid Microsoft.Expression.Design.Application.Main()

    And

    Felet uppstod i programmet med namn: Design.exe, version 7.0.20516.0, tidsstämpel 0x4beffa51

    , felet uppstod i modulen med namn: KERNELBASE.dll, version 6.1.7601.17514, tidsstämpel 0x4ce7bafa

    I ran ProcMon and I got this error just before the crash

    NO SUCH FILE: C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\assembly\GAC_MSIL\mscorlib.resources\v4.0_4.0.0.0_sv_b77a5c561934e089\mscorlib.resources.INI

     

    *************************

    I have tried to reinstall .Net Framework 4 twice. (.Net 3.5 cannot be reinstall as it ships with the OS for Windows 7.)

    I have reinstalled Expression Studio.

    I cannot get support from Microsoft because I need the Product ID which I can only get after the program has started (deadlocked) 

     

    Can anyone please help me?

  • Here's how to find your Product Key: Run regedit and look under the following path - Computer\HKEY_LOCAL\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Expression\Suite\### where### is one of the paths under the Suite directory. Mine was the first path. Hope that helps!

  • Hi! I think i've got the same problem. Expression Design won't start even though Expression Web does.. How did you solve it?

    Thanks!

  • I have the same problem....bought and installed Expression Studio 4 Web Professional today.   It will not initiate and there is no icon.  I tried to re-install and nothing happened, it did not try to reinstall or overwrite anything.

    I have files:

    Common

    Design 4

    Encoder 4

    Web 4

    How do I initiate and integrate the files so that they will work together if needed!?

    Thank for any info
