Doom Builder Won't Let Me Test Map

Recommended Posts

I selected Doom 2 and ZDoom but this is what comes up when I try to test a map:

 

Unable to start the test program, Win32Exception: This version of %1 is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information and then contact the software publisher.

 

I'm running Windows 10 64-bit. Did I not set something up? I want to make a Doom II map.

it sounds like you may wanna check and make sure you're running the right version of doombuilder. looks like you have the 32-bit version (you need 64-bit for a 64 bit cpu) and that's caused me a lot of grief in the past.

I can't find a 64-bit version. I Googled it but it just gave me the Doom 64 Builder. There doesn't seem to be a 64-bit version.

There is no specific 64bit version of Doom Builder, nor do you need one. @zaszthedestroyer has given you incorrect information.

Unfortunately that error message is rather non-standard. There's probably nothing anybody here can suggest outside of telling you to make sure ZDoom is running correctly on your own PC and you've configured the testing path correctly.

 

It should look like this, except ZDoom instead of Eternity:

Wait, wait. I'm lost. ZDoom? You mean GZDoom? 

 

Here's what I did:

 

 

Can you please give me a detailed rundown of what I need to do to get this working? What do I install aside from Zandronum and GZDoom? I want to start from scratch.

A while back I provided a link to my tutorials in the Tutorial section.

As to what to do for installing an editor see this direct link.

I would highly suggest pulling ZDoom out of the Steam folders in Program Files and moving it to somewhere like C:\Games\ZDoom instead, then point the editor to that location. It probably won't help this error but its better regardless.

hmmn. you're right. i could have sworn i downloaded a 64 bit version?

 

well, in any case i apologize. it was never my intention to mislead.

 

if i understand correctly you can try downloading GZDOOM here: https://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?t=60221

and then set DB to test off that. That's what ive been doing and its (mostly) never given me problems.
