Howdy!

Upon attempting to open scribus for the first time, I receive and EXCEPTION_INT_DIVIDE_BY_ZERO error. There is no error number visible on the notfication, you can see it in the link above.

I am running x64 Windows 10 Home, and I do not have ghostscript installed.

Any ideas?

which version of scribus are you running and from where did you download it?

https://sourceforge.net/projects/scribus/files/scribus/1.4.8/

I believe I am running 1.4.8, unless there was an update within the last 24 hours.

the file seems to be a good one.

you might want to try to remove the preferences by renaming the directory

C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Scribus

and letting scribus recreate it.

Hi, thanks for your help!

I uninstalled scribus, reinstalled it with the path you mentioned with the install wizard. Same error. Any other additional information I could provide? :/
