I installed Maxine on a Windows machine with a GeForce RTX 3090. I followed the instructions about installing the latest drivers, etc. When I run the sample apps (such as UpscalePipelineApp and BatchEffectApp) they produce no output and exit immediately with code -1073741515.
To be honest, I can’t say that I’ve ever encountered the error 1073741515. But I can assume that your files were damaged when installing Maxine, which is why the program simply does not work. Try updating or completely reinstalling the software. File system error 1073741515 translates as error type 0xC0000135. It describes the inability to run an executable program due to the lack of necessary components (one or more DLL files) or incorrectly configured system files.
True, updates to Windows are already so tired, they constantly appear while only interfering. Congratulations to you chris85 that you were able to find a solution to your problem! I hope you won’t have any problems in the future!
