I have been running Mamewah v1.62 with Mame v.120 flawlessly on Windows 10 64 bit for years until I installed a Windows 10 update. My LCD monitor is vertical oriented and set to 1024x1280@60Hz, 32 bit resolution. Before I updated Windows, Mamewah opened and quit with no issues, as shown in an old log file:
Code: [Select]

1/6/2016 8:44:27 PM MAMEWAH quit

After the Windows update was installed, this is what happens:

I welcome any input and advice. This has to be an easy fix. In the worst case scenario I can rollback the update since this is a dedicated emulator machine but I would prefer not to.

Thanks in advance.

I'm almost sure that you will have to modify your layout with the editor that brings mamewah to guide the resolution again.

Setting Safe Mode to 1 worked! And the change didn't negatively impact anything else. Thanks so much for your insight.

It would be nice to make a configurator for this frontend .. although they are a bit abandoned (I love it) I use it in my arcade booth
