System information: [ Citavi Version 5.2, Windows 7, German, -, -, - ]

Hello.
I installed the latest version of Civavi. I can start it, so the project dialog comes up.
But when I try to create a project it crashes.

Here's the output:

Please describe what you were doing in Citavi when the error occurred: -------------------------------------------------- Internal error message for the Citavi support team: System.Globalization.CultureNotFoundException: Culture is not supported. Parameter name: culture 0 (0x0000) is an invalid culture identifier. at System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InitializeFromCultureId(Int32 culture, Boolean useUserOverride) at System.Globalization.CultureInfo..ctor(Int32 culture, Boolean useUserOverride) at System.Windows.Forms.InputLanguage.get_Culture() at SwissAcademic.Citavi.Settings.ProofingToolsSettings.get_DefaultSpellCheckCulture() at SwissAcademic.Citavi.Shell.MainForm.Initialize() at SwissAcademic.Citavi.Shell.MainForm.OnLoad(EventArgs e) at System.Windows.Forms.Form.OnCreateControl() at SwissAcademic.Controls.FormBase.OnCreateControl() at SwissAcademic.Citavi.Shell.MainForm

Hi, jokuba,

Please take the following steps:

1) Repair the .NET Framework installation
Use the Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool which can be downloaded from the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... x?id=30135

2) Run the Windows System File Checker
On the "Start" menu, type "cmd.exe". Right-click the only search result (cmd.exe) and then click "Run as administrator".
Type sfc.exe /scannow and press "Enter". The System File Checker will run, which may take a while.
Afterwards, check for Windows Updates and install any necessary updates.
See http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... ws-updates (for Windows 7) or
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... update-faq (for Windows 8 and 8.1)
Restart your computer.

Can you open a project now?

Best regards
Sebastian

Hello Sebastian

Thanks for your quick reply! I should have mentioned that I am trying to run Citavi emulated via WINE 1.9.14.
I assume that you cannot support specific problems with that but I was hoping you might be able to give a tip what could cause the problem. ... You referring to a broken .NET installation - I used a fresh setup and .NET installed properly. Any idea how to get it running?

Regards
jokuba

Hi, jokuba,

when I checked last (a couple of months ago) there was no way of getting Wine to run Citavi 5 in any feasible way. With a lot of tweaking I finally convinced it to start, but errors crept up everywhere when using even basic functions. The last version known to run under Wine is Citavi 3.

We can't officially support the Wine platform as too many things are missing compared to a "real" Windows (even on a virtual machine).

Best regards
Sebastian
