In responce to this question.
Has anyone had msys working on Windows 7 64 bit version?
I'm getting "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142)"
error.
I tried both 1.0.10 and 1.011 with the same result.

Hello,
I had the same problem with Msys and Windows Seven, but found a workaround : start msys without Rxvt

msys.bat -norxvt
Thank you, chev65, but I don't think your suggested solution is relevant to the issue as such, but maybe for just running that particular program. The 0xc142 problem affected almost the entire system, expecially all console programs.

The .nfo file is unreadable by me. Please try this:

Quote:
If you're having difficulties with the format, please open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt and type "msinfo32 /nfo C:\Users\Public\Desktop\TEST.NFO\" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Then navigate to the C:\Users\Public\Desktop directory to retrieve the TEST.NFO file. If you have difficulties with making this work, please post back.

Hey

The command you suggest is incorrect. It has to be "msinfo32 /nfo C:\Users\Public\Desktop\TEST.NFO" without the \ at the end. If it is included it will give an error and not create the .nfo at all.
How to use System Information (MSINFO32) command-line tool switches

You should be able to read the test.nfo in any texteditor, but I too get an error when trying to double-click and load in MSinfo program. It says file is damaged or incompatible. It opens just fine in Notepad++.

Here I added a few more testfiles.

Thanks for catching that!

The text versions of the report have an enormous amount of stuff in them - which makes it difficult to sort through.
Also, I've got eye problems and can't stand to stare at that amount of data for long periods of time.

Let's try this:
- recreate the problem and note the time.
- open up the MSINFO32 program and select the Software Environment category, then the Windows Error Reporting category.
- look there for events that occurred around the time that you noted for the problem.
- select those events by holding down "Ctrl" and clicking on each one.
Then press "Ctrl" and "C" to copy them - then press "Ctrl" and "P" to paste them into your next post.
That'll cut down on the amount of text to be scanned through and will make it easier to check.

I can't recreate it, so I guess I'll just have to wait till it returns.
Thank you for now and hope you're enjoying the rest of the holidays.
