Server not starting.


Recommended Posts

I have spent half the day trying to figure this out. I launch the server via Steam (and I have tried the config.bat and dedicated***.exe) My biggest problem is I am not getting a logfile... nothing.


I get "cannot call invoke or begin Invoke on a control until the window handle is created" and the window just closes. I had to run this like 40 times to get all that BTW... it would just pop so fast.


The startdedicated.bat is unchanged


Below is my serverconfig.xml I was not able to upload it as it was an "invalid file" Please let me know if anyone has any idea what I can do here. Thank you!
