if it is off topic, warn me, because i'm new to the forums, but i need help with org2xm, when i click on the application, a black screen appears for half a second and disappear, and after that, nothing happens anymore. i tried opening task manager and other ways to see if something is happening, but i won't get any clue org2xm is running.

note: i am on windows 10 64bit.

(sorry for the bad english)

org2xm uses a 'command line interface' - it doesn't have a nice window you can open up and use like normal, but you can still use it in a different way.
Do you know about 'command prompt'? Try going to the folder where org2xm is located, now hold Shift and right-click on it. (On the folder, not on org2xm.) Do you see 'Open command window here'? If yes, click that. Now a black box with white text will open up. Now type:

org2xm <your song name>.org ORGxxxyy.dat

and press enter. Then the program should work, and the xm file will appear in that folder.
(The ORGxxxyy.dat is based on your version - use ORG134EN.dat or ORG210EN.dat or ORG210JP.dat)

I hope that works for you!

did i do something wrong? Because when i did what you said, there wasn't any "open command window here" there was only powershell, that didn't work, so i tried doing it manual, and look what hapenned:

Just drag and drop the org file over the Org2XM program. It converts the file that way, too.

Yeah, looks like org2xm just hates my pc. Because when i did what you said, it opened and said invalid sample bank header just like before. And i still didn't get my xm :(
