Quizmaker crashes on startup after splash screen

Article Last Updated

If Quizmaker '09 crashes as soon as it launches, it might be caused by an issue with the Regional and Language Settings on your computer. You might be affected by this if Quizmaker crashes directly after the Articulate splash screen appears.

To correct the problem you may need to reset your Regional and Language Settings:

  1. Open the Regional and Language Options applet from the Control Panel.
  2. Note the Current Format.
  3. Change the Current Format to English (Australian) or another available format (language).
  4. Click Apply.
  5. Change the Current Format to the format noted in step 2 above, eg, English (American).
  6. Click Apply and then click OK.

You should now be able to launch Articulate Quizmaker. If that does not resolve your issue, please see Unexpected behavior in Articulate Studio '09.
