NOTICE: .NET 5 Desktop Runtime Download Error ** PLEASE READ **

Post by HandBrake »

Hi Everyone.

Just a quick note to say that HandBrake 1.4 uses "Microsoft .NET 5 Desktop Runtime" x64 for Intel/AMD systems or arm64 if using an ARM device

When downloading, please make sure to download the correct version. See the highlighted download link in the image below!

https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/d ... .0/runtime
net5download.PNG
net5download.PNG (132.12 KiB) Viewed 5877 times
If you download the Console Runtime, the application will fail to launch and prompt you to download the desktop runtime.

Please also note that any 5.0.x version is fine. The current version at the time of posting is 5.0.9 but all future versions of Runtime 5 will be ok.

Thanks

When I then try running handbarke it says it requires version 5.0.0, which I guess is an earlier version.

You don't need the image. Just read the page. Download the Desktop Runtime for the platform your on.

I was able to solve my problem on windows 10. I was not able to run handbrake version 1.4.1 with the current version of .net 5.0.9*

Handbrake 1.4.1 works if I install the older version of .net 5.0.0 https://versionsof.net/core/5.0/5.0.0/

or you can go the other way and install the old version of handbrake version 1.3.3 https://handbrake.fr/old.php

Good luck!

Do NOT install older versions of .NET Runtime as they do NOT contain security updates. 5.0.9 or the latest version of 5.0 works fine.

You simply have to install the Desktop Runtime. Neither the Server nor Console runtimes will work.

My mistake, I originally downloaded the wrong .net library. I was confused by the nav at the top .net download page I downloaded the console app .net. The original post is correct, sorry for muddying the waters.

I initially make the same mistake as other and downloaded the console version of .NET, but have corrected to the Desktop version and no longer get the .NET error, however, now Handbrake won't open at all. No error - no nothing. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, restarted computer...nothing. Just doesn't open.

I have installed the correct version of .net and version 1.4 keeps asking me to install .net 5.0... I can't seem to get it to run!

Another way to get the correct .NET is to go here:
https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet/5.0

Download the ".NET Desktop Runtime" version. For me it was on the right hand side of the browser.

As far as I can tell, I did exactly as instructed by the moderator, but the program still won't run, as described in my posting this morning. I'd love to know what I'm doing wrong.

I installed the correct .NET from the start, but this not only breaks Handbrake 1.4, it also breaks 1.3. No amount of uninstalling or reinstalling will fix it. Does nobody test these releases? Is your uninstaller garbage and won't actually uninstall the application? Please fix this.

Even worse:
The only way I can make Handbrake run is install 1.4 (which is not recommended for my system) on a system *without* .NET 5. Wtf.
