I'm using .NET framework 4.5.1, not 3.5. Is it a problem ?

The .Net 4.x runtime does not include the .Net 3.x runtime. So you need to have a correct installation of the .Net 3.5 framework.

During the Windows 7 install, .Net 3.5 is copied to your HDD, but may be disabled by default.
That's why you need to check if the feature "Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5.1" is enabled in your "Windows Features" panel:

If it's already checked, maybe your .Net 3.5 installation is corrupted.
To repair it, an easy way is to uncheck the feature, click OK, reboot, then check again the feature, click OK, reboot.

Can you check if the feature is checked in your panel and, if this is the case, repair it as explained above ?

Usually, when a C# application crashes at start up without showing any .Net exception/stack trace, this means something happens before the framework is called.
That's why the first things to check are the .Net framework (todo), XNA (done), user rights (done), etc.

In fact .NET Framework 3.5.1 was installed, so I uninstalled it then reinstalled, no effect.

Here is the dxdiag.

Everything seems ok in your DxDiag :/

Maybe can you check the event viewer (Observateur d'événements) ?
First run again CoCoNet until it crashes, then open the event viewer.
In the left pane "Windows Logs" (Journaux Windows), check if you see an error inside "Application", "Sécurité", "Installation", etc... concerning CoCoNet (normally you should).

I hope this will give more information on the crash...

For example, here's an error event for Future Pinball:

The crash occurs in the KERNELBASE.dll.
A KERNELBASE.dll error can be anything from corrupted dll, rights restrictions, etc, to video driver problem...

Unfortunately, tracing the program execution without Visual Studio is not trivial.

You can try one last thing (if you haven't already did it):
disable you antivirus,
uninstall CoCoNet,
install CoCoNet,
run CoCoNet with administrator rights,
...wait for the crash..
enable your AV

PS: i've just run CoCoNet on a Windows 7 Pro 64 bits without any crash... :/

kernelbase.dll don't seem corrupt.
I checked with "sfc /scannow" and the tool "DLL suite".

I can install a Visual studio express edition if it can help.

No no, i don't say it is corrupt.
Kernelbase is one of the windows core program. So when something goes wrong in Windows (for example one of the .Net dll corrupted, video driver incompatibility, etc), most of the time this is this dll which throws an exception (and without giving anymore information...).

Thank you for proposing to install VS, but express will not work with CoCoNet :?. And installing a fresh environment of VS+XNA+Shaders takes some time.

As is, i don't have anymore idea. Sorry.

Anyway thanks for your responsiveness.
I'll continue to do some tests and report if I find a solution.

It's about admins right, right click on the folder and take total control of it.

Hello,

First of all thanks for your devotion and the excellent game(s) conversion :P

I had the same problem with KERNELBASE.dll coconet appcrash.

It was solved by installing Microsoft XNA Framework Redistributable 3.1 (xnafx31_redist.msi) on Win7 pro ( version 4 was already installed) 8)
