Bug #271

Can't launch CEMU

Added by ReceptiveRaptor 4 months ago. Updated about 1 month ago.

Start date:
Cemu Version:
GPU Vendor/Model:
rtx 2060


[Have you reviewed Serfrost's FAQ & Setup Guide?:] Yes

[Cemu Version:]

All versions, I was trying to get 1.17.1, but I have also downloaded previous versions and they all have the same error.

[Cemuhook Version:]

[CPU Model:]


[GPU Model:]

Geforce RTX 2060

[Laptop or Desktop?:]


[Explain the problem you're having and what you've tried:]

Basically this is a brand new laptop that has never had Cemu installed, I downloaded cemu, clicked on cemu.exe(and tried as an admin) and it loads for half a second, closes and creates a log Log1.

I've tried to fix it in these ways:

Went to the CEMU discord and was told I need the 2017 vcredists, I have visual studio 2019 installed and 2015/2017/2019 use the same vcredists, even so I repaired my installed, restarted the laptop and tried again, when that failed I uninstalled, restarted, reinstalled, restarted and still had the same crash/log output.

(I then realized while writing this post that CEMU links to a vcredists for 2017)
This is the log I got when uninstalling 2019, restarting and installing 2017.

See the top of the post for [Log2]

2) Googled for my problem and found this post on reddit:
Not that we even have the same issue but my dbghelp.dll doesn't have digital signitures in its properties menu.

3) Everything listed under "Cemu refuses to open at all." & "Laptops with Dual Graphics" on Serfrots FAQ/Guide

4) I've now done a fresh install of windows 10, made sure to "unblock" and
and it doesn't matter what harddrive I have cemu run from.
Windows update is up to date, graphics drivers as of 09/02/2020 is 422.19

I've been talking on discord, most of this report is a copy paste of the post I made on the subreddit, it's getting nowhere and I'm getting desperate because on this machine CEMU seems to be unusable.

and after all of that I still have the issue.

So I feel like I've tried a lot of things.

  • Status changed from New to Closed

Cemu was crashing due to a 3rd party program tying to hook into it. whatever program is using this 'taskbarDockAppIntegration64.dll' delete that program and it will work.
