I’ve been using Sculptris for a while now, probably close to two years, and it’s been working fine until a week or so ago, when it just refused to launch at all. I haven’t altered any of my computer’s settings or any of the program files to prompt this, and I’ve tried running as administrator, restarting my computer multiple times, and uninstalling, re-downloading and reinstalling the entire program, only to have the same thing happen.
Sometimes the loading page preview that pops up and says ‘Sculptris’ on it before the full program loads will pop up, but only once with every restart of my laptop. The icon and window will show up on the task bar for a few seconds without the program opening in full before disappearing without any indication of an error. Waiting doesn’t make it come back, even if given overnight. It is getting increasingly frustrating, made more so by the fact nothing has happened to make it stop working in the first place.
I am on Windows 8, and the current version had not been changed between Sculptris working and not working, but it has been updated since. The re-installation with continued launch failure has happened after Windows had updated.
I hope that there is a simple solution that I have missed in order to fix this. Thanks in advance!
