I have installed AWE Designer 8.B.1.4.E-build382 Standard. I did have it working, but now it just doesn't start. I have tried editing Windows Firewall to let through DesignerGUi.exe (64b and 32b), AWE_Server.exe, LicenseHelper.exe.
When I double-click the AWE Designer icon I notice in task manager that you see AWE Designer in Apps section, it then says "not responding", I then briefly see it in the Background processes section, it then says "not responding", it then disappears and nothing else happens.
I've also tried running the .\awe_designer.exe from Powershell - nothing happens.
I've tried running as Administrator - nothing happens.
I've tried uninstalling and re-installing several times (including the matlab run-time which takes a while! and MS Visual Studio 10 Redistributable ), still nothing happens.
The annoying thing is that I did have it working briefly for a few days, though sometimes on startup of AWE_Designer I would get a blue-screen and the PC would reboot.
My PC specs are: i7-2620M CPU 2.7 GHz, 4 GB Ram, 64-bit Windows 10 Enterprise Edition.
Is there any other debug I can take to try and solve this issue ? Note, I have run other audio apps fine on this PC (i.e. Matlab (not really an audio app!), Pure Data, Max/MSP, Ableton (demo version), Audacity, Audio Precision software, etc.).
