↵VEX Assembler problems or crashes can be caused by a number of different underlying causes, depending on individual system specs, performance, and configuration. The following tips have been successful with things like startup crashes or black screens in the workspace:
Make sure you've installed the correct version for your computer, 32- or 64- bit. See this Microsoft article if you're unsure how to determine your system type.
Enable VEX Assembler to run in Windows Vista or XP compatibility mode. Right-click the program icon, select "Properties", select the "Compatibility" tab, check "Run this program in compatibility mode for:", and choose "Windows Vista" or "Windows XP" from the drop-down box.
Disable autoswitching on systems with multiple GPUs or a "low-power" mode (e.g. nVidia Optimus or other laptops with integrated graphics). This is a setting that can usually be found in your graphics control panel or properties, and may vary from system to system.
On systems with the ability to set graphics profiles (some nVidia cards), set VEX Assembler to run in "compatibility" graphics mode.
If the above tips still don't work, contact [EMAIL="firstname.lastname@example.org"]email@example.com[/EMAIL] with a screenshot of your system specs (right click My Computer", select "Properties"), and we'll see what we can do to help. To take and save a screenshot, use the following instructions: Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP.
Hi Sara, thanks for trying out VEX Assembler. The Clawbot IQ files can be found inside the ZIP file that you downloaded after registering with your email address. If you’ve since deleted that ZIP file, check your old emails to find the download link again.
This ZIP file contains both the file that you used to install the program (.exe) and a folder entitled “Clawbot”. Inside the “Clawbot” folder, you should find five .vex files - “Assembly”, “Build the Base”, “Clawbot Base”, “Clawbot Claw”, and “Clawbot Tower”. That “Assembly.vex” file is the entire Clawbot IQ model that you’re looking for.
