I just downloaded and installed Spine, when trying to open a project from the menu the program hangs and needs to be shut from the task manager, is this a known bug and any way around it?
I am running Windows 7 64bit.

Spine is developed mostly on Win7 64bit. One other user has reported this, but we can't reproduce it. You can try holding down the shift key when you click Open Project. This will open an alternative file browser. There must be something with your Windows installation having to do with file browsing that causes a problem. I wish I knew what it was! :(

Unfortunately holding down shift doesn't fix the problem for me, it crashes on both open and save project.

Hmm. I bet there is some Windows Explorer extension, probably something that shows up as a drive, that causes problems. Any chance you have Nokia PC Suite or Nokia Phone Browser installed? Do you have any mapped network drives?

I've uploaded Spine v1.2.6 with two changes that may help your problem. Can you run Spine again, verify that it auto updated to 1.2.6 (shown in the menu when you click the logo in the upper left), and try "open project" again, both without and with shift being held down? Sorry for the trouble, but it's hard to fix when it doesn't happen for me. :bang:

Same problems unfortunately, I'm running Display Fusion with a dual monitor setup, do you think that may cause issues? No Nokia software of mapped network drives.

Damn. Shiu has multiple monitors and Win7 64bit and it runs fine for him. Not sure what Display Fusion is though. I'm afraid I'm at a loss. :( The normal file browser is a native file browser. The one you get when you hold shift is a Swing file browser. If both hang it's likely because something in the Windows API that they are using hangs, which is at a really low level. Without more clues I'm not sure what else we can do. :(

I'll try some things later on, I'll let you know if I get anywhere.

So it's sorted out now. I have been using the program with the window maximized, when opening the file browser it opens it behind the application. The application hangs and nothing can move, therefore I cant get to the window. Simple problem but it gives the impression that the program just crashes, just have to be really careful that I shrink the window before I open or "Save as.." a project

Glad you got it sorted. This happens when the window is just maximized, not fullscreen? I already have code that takes Spine out of fullscreen when the file dialog is shown and restores it after. For me, the file dialog is always on top of the Spine window if not fullscreen. Hmm, do you have your taskbar set to auto hide?

Edit: Yup, seems auto hiding the taskbar makes maximize identical to fullscreen, so the file-dialog-behind-Spine-when-fullscreen problem occurs even when Spine thinks it is only maximized. I've changed it so Spine temporarily comes out of both maximize and fullscreen when a file dialog is shown, then returns to its previous state afterward. This is in v1.2.8 which is building and will be available in ~10 minutes.

The window was just maximized.

Edit: Relieved it's fixed, can't wait to use it now :party:
