    Default @BIOS and Visual C++ Library Runtime ..Early Program Termination Error (GWFlash.exe)

    I am trying to update my Windows 7 64-bit SP1 Desktop Computer with a Gigabyte GA-X58a-UD5 Rev. 2 motherboard with the latest FE BIOS from the servers using @BIOS.

    After selecting the BIOS and proceeding I get a Early Program Termination Error from Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library! I have tried everything and can't get it to update!

    Does anyone know how this problem can be fixed??? It did initially work when I first had the motherboard and updated it to the current bios...

    What is causing this error???

    Also for some reason Gigabyte when back to their FE5 Beta Bios on their site but the @BIOS App still shows the FE released version.....strange?

    Thank you,

    michael

    What bios is your mother board updated with Fe5 or FE right now? Either way I believe Fe5 is already a 2048k file size bios and there for you should be able to flash with q-flash which is the recommended way of flashing. The only time @bios is needed is when flashing from the orginal bios size of 1024kb to the larger 2048kb file size. Once Bios is flashed with larger once Q-flash can be continued to use for other flashes. If you wanted to go back to the older size then yes you need @bios again.

    Uninstall your version of @bios and try this version. @BIOS v.2.11 B11.0112.1

    I currently am using BIOS FD and am 99% sure I aready have that version (@BIOS v.2.11 B11.0112.1) of @BIOS already on my computer.

    Any idea why Gigabyte has FE BIOS available on their server and only FE5 (beta) for the QFlash? FE was available a couple of weeks ago but then removed and replaced with FD and now FE5.

    I also have tried to install the new firmware with QFlash and a USB Flash Drive but it said that some kind of file size mismatch problem existed??? I have now idea what they are talking about as there is only one file on the drive!

    Thank you for your help!

    As alerady been said, this BIOS size is greater tha 1MB and Q-Flash won't flash it untill the new version is installed.
    To have no doubt download the latest @BIOS from the BIOS update page. If it's still fail run windows update to update the VC++ libraries.

    How do you get this new version of QFlash.exe to install?

    The @BIOS I am using is the current 2/2011 version and does not work with the files that Gigabyte has on all their servers! I get the runtime error...gwflash.exe.

    I talked with Gigabytes Tech Support and they don't even know what the cause of the problem is. My Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit w/ SP1 is all up to date....no where else
    to go!!! NO UPDATES are available...I have them all.

    I guess I am stuck at FD Bios for the time being?

    Q-flash gets updated when the bios is updated. As for the problem with q-flash I am not sure what the problem is. Try uninstalling the software. Reboot then try reinstalling again. When do you get this error message when you start @bios or when you try to flash with @bios.

    If its when flashing. Make sure you load Optimized defaults in bios first and only set what is needed in order to boot to windows. (AHCI, Raid, BOOT order and memory specs). Then try to flash with @bios.

    If this still does not work you can still flash with another program. Flashspi, its a dos based flashing utility. It should come with Gigabytes downloaded bios's or you can get it here. Make a bootable dos disk. Usb stick will work. You might want to do a little googling on how to flash with flashspi I dont know what commands to use to get it to flash.

    Acebmxer,

    What if I reflash from DOS FC and then try @BIOS to go directly to FE instead of FD? I now have FD.

    I tried the Optimize to default and that still didn't work. Still get the error after selecting the FE bios and clicking on OK. It loads the code and then gives the error.

    Maybe it is just better to wait for Gigabyte to fix the problem with @Bios and the FE file???

    Thanks for your help!

    Michael

    You can flash the bios's in any order. You can go from FC to FE back to FD does not matter. I think the problem is with @bios and windows. Will @bios let you flash FC or FD? Try this Ff1 beta bios.

    If it is a bios issue you can try Reflashing your current bios with q-flash maybe something happened on your last flash???? idk.

    Acebmxer,

    Do you have a copy of the FE Bios? I could try that using @bios from my hard drive.

    I don't think there is any way of me getting it from the @bios servers to first download and then try the install? I really want a non beta release for now.

    Thanks,

    Michael
