Scribus error message: 'can't run on your PC'
« on: January 06, 2021, 03:47:56 am »
I followed all the links for downloading Scribus for my 64-bit Windows 10 computer.  After downloading and clicking on the exe file, I got a message saying "Can't run on your PC".  Which download should I be choosing for my Windows 10 computer if not the Windows 10 download?

Hi :)

Do you download the right 32/64 bit version for your Win10?

Bye

I downloaded the following:
Windows 64 Bit (Vista, 7, 8, 10):
http://sourceforge.net/projects/scribus/files/scribus/1.4.8/

I have always chosen Windows 10 64-bit for downloads for my Windows 10 Asus, but this time it said: "Can't Run on this PC".

I suppose I could try one of the 32-bit options below, but I've double-checked my system, and it's definitely 64-bit.

    Portable Scribus (Windows 32 Bit):
    http://portableapps.com/apps/office/scribus_portable
    Windows 32 Bit (2000 SP4, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10):
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/scribus/files/scribus/1.4.8/

Thanks for your response, Claudio.  Problem solved.  The first link did not download but then the second mirror site worked.  The error message was either a fluke or perhaps I did not wait long enough for the download to finish.
