If the program has worked previously and has suddenly stopped working, please ensure you have rebooted your PC as this will often restore things to normal.

The program crashes on startup with no specific error message.

Right click the Shortcut icon and select Properties > Compatibility, then Check the 'Disable visual themes' box. Restart the application.
