I've recently downloaded acme-0.13.zip to a new Windows 7 Pro x64 based machine, but I've never encountered this problem in the past. After running Acme.exe, I get the usual pause while it's dis'ing for the first time, but the window never displays while the process is still shown as running in Task Manager. Subsequent runs yield the same results. Any idea what would cause this or pointers on how to diagnose the problem?

There used to be a problem with reading security domains. There is a acme.exe here http://code.google.com/p/acme-sac/downloads/detail?name=nosec-acme.exe&can=2&q=#makechanges that didn't read the security information.  Try that and see if it works. This is a shot in the dark.

Thank you for the response. I copied this file to my current acme-sac directory and ran it, but the only result I get is a cmd window with the contents:

bind: /usr/{username}/tmp: '/usr/{username}/tmp' file does not exist
sh: cannot open /usr/{username}/lib/profile: '/usr/{username}/lib' file does not exist;

I tried copying the "inferno" directory under /usr to {username}, and creating a tmp directory within, but I get the same error window. You may be onto something though because it works when run as Administrator, or in Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode.

It works fine for me on Windows 7 Starter 32 bit. I unzipped to C:\Users\Public\acme-0.13. I usually log in as an administrator, but I just tried running Acme with the Guest account and it still works.

Is there a space character in your windows 7 username?

I have this same problem. Have been having for a long time. Acme.exe process opens but no windows is opened. 

Also, the mentioned "nosec-acme.exe" version w/o sec stuff says "panic: loading "/dis/emuinit.dis": '/dis' file does not exist".

This is a heavily controller corporate Win 7 Enterprise 64-bit.

There is a newer version of Acme.exe built on Windows 10 in the Github repo https://github.com/caerwynj/acme-sac
 You might try to see if that works for you.

I might be missing somewhing, but
https://github.com/caerwynj/acme-sac/commits/master/Acme.exe shows the
latest commit on Dec 27, 2016. Are you sure a new Acme.exe was pushed
to master?

thanks,

Yes, that's the one I'm currently using on Window 10 64 bit. Newer than the acme-0.13.zip.
