Dear Valued Member, This is to inform you that Orb Blast 1.4.0 has failed to meet Intel(R) Atom(TM) Developer Program's validation criteria. Failure Reason: ILU03 - Application launch Additional Comments: In Windows XP Application does not launch from AppUp or natively from the Start menu. If the user attempts to launch the application from the desktop or start menu, the application is unresponsive. In Windows 7, if the user attempts to download the application the user encounters an error message between download and installation, and the application does not install. Please see packaging requirements located here: http://appdeveloper.intel.com/en-us/article/packaging-requirements and troubleshooting tips located here: http://appdeveloper.intel.com/en-us/article/troubleshooting-validation-f... and confirm that your .msi meets the requirements. The application must be configured to be able to locate its resources when being launched from anywhere on the netbook. Please check your application resource paths. Please ensure that all dependencies or redistributables are bundled with the application. Please also see the article on beta testing: http://appdeveloper.intel.com/en-us/article/beta-testing and beta test your application using AppUp prior to resubmission. Thank you! Check the failure code against the Intel(R) Application/Component Suitability Guidelines and Validation Criteria document. This document lists the error codes and the associated tests that were run on your application. Additional comments provided may help narrow down the specific failure(s). So anyway I've poured over the documentation, been back and forth a few times with the validation and the last time I pretty much wanted to give up but after an encouraging call from Jared I figured I would come on here and post some thoughts from our conversation and put a suggestion into work. Since the beta testing stuff doesn't work for me it's been difficult and frustrating since in order to see if something works I've had to keep sending it in, waiting a week (or more) get a new failure message, rinse and repeat. So a suggestion was to see if there was anyone on here who would like to take a crack at building an .MSI for my app? There's a free game in it for you and lots of thanks from me!
