Cannot Launch jamkazam.exe App

The jamkazam.exe application will not launch on my PC - the "busy" icon appears for a few seconds and then no response. Does not appear in Task Manager.

I have tried rebooting, reinstalling, checking the "AppData\Roaming\JamKazam\dumps" for any logs (there are not any), removing the "AppData\Roaming\JamKazam\Client.ini" file and starting. opening all permissions for the application in my firewall - all to no avail.

My system:
Windows Ultimate 7 64 bit PC
Intel Core2 Quad CPU @ 2.50GHz

I've perused the message boards but didn't find anything to help me as of yet.

Send a few requests for support, but no answer as of yet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


  • Hi Shaun,

    This will be frustrating for you to hear, but we do not know why this is happening as of yet. It happens on a rare number of Windows computers; that's all we know.

    We've tried some initial attempts to figure out what this is, but so far, we've had no luck.

    I'm sorry; given any amount of extra time, this is high on the list to check up on.


  • OK, thank you, I understand.
  • No updates yet?
  • I'm sorry Shaun, not yet.

    Let me ask you something--do you run as 'administrator' on Windows?

  • Having same issue
    and yes i do run as administrator
  • So far, everyone that has told us that the app silently exits runs as Administrator. I've tried doing the same, but I didn't have any problems. I still think this is somehow the issue, but I haven't figured it out.
  • I tried launching the app as Administrator. Not successful.
  • I think the problem is only there when you run the program as administrator @Shaun College (but not in call cases)
  • Any updates? Tried running both as Administrator and vice-versa. Tried downloading the latest app, in case there was an update. No luck.
  • Just a suggestion. Try running the app in "Safe Mode"
  • Win 7 Ultimate has AppLocker

    and Win 7 Pro does not. I don't have Win 7 Ultimate, so I can't test this out for myself (I use Mac), but you might want to look into this.
  • AppLocker... interesting. I don't believe I've tried out Win7 Ultimate. That's a lead...
  • Keep an eye out for the new windows 10 release. I've been hearing it is going to be more user friendly for musicians. Just hope it doesn't jack up jamkazam
  • Still no luck.
  • @Shaun College

    Do you mind going through these steps to see if 'AppLocker' is shutting down JamKazam?

    Also, if you are comfortable, you might just fire up JamKazam and take a look at your Event logs to see if anything shows up.
  • Both of these logs are empty.
  • Tried the latest version of JamKazam, and no change.

    Event Viewer shows this:

  • HI Shaun
    Curious as to what audio interface you have. Also are you connected WIFI or Ethernet?
    Are you behind a firewall possibly?
    Best regards
  • edited November 2015
    I see on his initial post he allowed all permissions for the App on his firewall. Have you tried disabling the firewall to see if it would allow you to load the App? Is it a secondary firewall, or just windows firewall? Without knowing what you have, some virus protection software has a built in firewall as well.
  • I have tried rebooting, reinstalling, checking the "AppData\Roaming\JamKazam\dumps" for any logs (there are not any), removing the "AppData\Roaming\JamKazam\Client.ini" file and starting. opening all permissions for the application in my firewall - all to no avail.
  • I have Norton 360, I tried turning off the firewall - no good. I tried turning off *everything* - no good.

    This is the only application out of 233 that has issues.
  • I had tried installing Windows Ultimate myself, hoping that's somehow the problem. I frankly don't recall the outcome of that experiment. I can try it again in my free time. @Shaun College
  • @Shaun College I'm also very bothered the app won't load for you; I'm also stabbing in the dark as to what the issue is.
  • @Shaun College This app may show some info about the crash. IF you want to download it and try it, I'd be interested in what it says...
  • I'm getting a crash on launch too, and I downloaded the utility you mention above.
  • I have this same issue windows 7 I started a new thread, sorry to necro this one but was there ever a solution to this??
  • 2 1/2 years and nothing, huh?

    I bought a new PC, a new audio interface (Apogee Duet) and JamKazam still doesn't recognize the interface. Good thing the DAW's I use do.

    No support for 2+ years, not very impressive.
  • Shane ..what are talking. About no support?

    Go to the gear setup do a new config pull the audio device menu down and screen shot tge lust then post it here. Want to see whatis shown.
    Further make sure all other siftware is clised before you do this
