Run ceregreset.exe
and if it still fails to start up launch cheatengine-i386.exe instead of cheat engine.exe
and if that doesn't work then uninstall your anti virus and reboot

and obviously: Make sure you do not have any online game running

Running "ceregreset.exe" resetted successfully.
I launched "cheatengine-i386.exe", and still the same problem.
I have Solo Sentry active. So; it seems that's the problem.

Are there going to be update's for "CheatEngine" that don't conflict with anti-viruses? It seems to be a lot of work just to get it working.


Olis (reporter)

Disabled my anti-virus still left with the same issue. And I did not un-install my anti-virus.

Does CE check for anti-viruses even though they're not running? It'll be better if it just ran regardless if that's the case. So, we can put it on a ignore list. Putting a system at risk from other PUP's we might all come across on the internet just for one program is just ridiculous.


Dark Byte (developer)

No, CE does not check for anti viruses, but they do tend to interfere with it's workings. Even when disabled some of them keep on blocking until completely removed.

Anyhow, what you could try is install ce to a location with no special characters in the path. e.g: c:\ce\

It's the same error. Thank's for taking time to help me.

If it's possible, and you have the time. Try to make one that doesn't have conflict with other software. I know it's a lot of work, but we'll appreciate it. I've been wanting to try CE for awhile. Thank's.

The speed hack x flash game in the firefox browser is what I wanted to try out. If there can be a mini-version that can get past the error. I'd be grateful.

Just wondering, what windows version do you use and what kind of cpu ?


Olis (reporter)

Windows XP PRO Version 2002 Service Pack 3 x86 NTFS

Intel Celeron Processor
534MHz, 300 MB of RAM

My lovely-junker.

It might be your cpu doesn't support the SSE instruction set that ce 6.0+ uses

try 5.6: http://cheatengine.org/download/CheatEngine561.exe
