Can't run LightZone at all


Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

Can't run LightZone at all

I'm running Windows 10 Home 64-bit.  I can't get LightZone to run at all. I've tried installing both the 64-bit version and the 32-bit version.  It seems to install correctly, but when I click the LightZone desktop icon, the program immediately crashes.  I don't get any kind of error message at all -- it just stops running -- I looked in my Task Manager -- it's not running any kind of LightZone process.

It should run just fine;

for the beginning, make sure that the SmartScreen "feature" isn't blocking the installation or execution; disable it temporarily. It can prevent the proper installation of "unknown" programs even when told to allow it. Also check your antivirus.

The C:\Program Files\LightZone folder's size should be about 213 MB. In Documents, there should be another LightZone folder, containing LightZone.log and Templates subfolder. In C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming\LightZone should be the Caches subfolder.
