[Chimera-users] Chimera crashes at launch

I was running Chimera 1.7s 64bit under Windows 7 64 bit, and all was fine
until I started trying it with a 3D monitor. While I was playing with stereo
options, Chimera crashed and now it gives me an error at launch and quits,
so I cannot run it anymore.


I uninstalled it, deleted its preferences folder .chimera from AppData
folder, cleaned up chimera occurences from registry and reinstalled the
daily version, and it still doesn’t work!


After launch, the error window shows:



Chimera Launcher Error


chimera failed abnormally; the exit code was: 1.

Use the --debug command line option for the full error message.




And if I launch it with the –debug option, this is what I can see in the
terminal (command line):


Cannot execute 'gzip': no automatic decompression of .Z files

I was planning to get something done this weekend, so I’d appreciate any


Looking forward to the solution.


Thanks and have a nice weekend.
