ut executable problem

Post by darksonny »

Hi all
I installed win 7 from scratch and then installed ut goty, I noticed a weird behaviour, when I do double click on it (ut shorcut from desktop) nothing happens so I looked into task manager ut its running but no windows is shown, so I felt odd and double clicked again and the successfully opened unrealtournament.exe. But into the taskmanager unrealtournament.exe appears twice? Why this odd behaviour happen? How can I fix this issue?
thanks in advance

I noticed this as well...
I think it has something to do with user permission. Somehow I got rid of it ...but can't remember how. :?

The reason why it shows up twice in the background because you double clicked it twice... and I'm also having the same problem, but doesn't know where it start but it started a long time ago like some months ago.

I guess it was because I turned off requesting password via properties but I doubt that is the case for me because it's still giving me the issue before I turned that option on.

Now what I noticed is that when I use XC_Launch from the XC_Engine, it doesn't do that. You may also notice UT still running in the background from the UnrealEditor because it uses the default UT Launcher.exe. That is when I have to constantly leave open the task manager to kill it otherwise my unrealeditor becomes unresponsive.

This is the core line of the batch file:

Code: Select all

ren %windir%\%wd%\gameux.dll gameux.dll.Ubeogesh >nul
It moves the file GAMEUX.DLL to GAMEUX.DLL.UBEOGESH so that the DLL file is not used any more by Windows.

Probably this file has to do with the Windows Games Explorer, that is started when a game is launched and it looks for updates and information. See also for example Windows 7 Game Explorer interfering with Game launching and A fix for Windows 7 and Game Explorer.

Yes, the Game Explorer ...you have to kill UT out of that list and then deactivate the service.

Now I remember again ... I'm getting old.
