    Good evening everyone,

    I downloaded the trial version of gamemaker studio 2 on my windows 8.1 laptop,
    It look like it installs fine. Then when I click the icon on the desktop to open it there is nothing.

    The little blue timer circle comes up for about 2 to 4 seconds then nothing. No error message or anything, it just will not open. no boxes ot anything, just wont open.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks,
    Bj

    Have you tried running it with administrator rights?

    Try checking the ui.log file, if you're lucky, GMS 2 may have booted far enough to write something to it that gives a clue what's happening.

    It's in:
    Code:
    C:\ProgramData\GameMakerStudio2\ui.log
    
    Short of that, try a complete uninstall and reinstall at least once.

    When you reinstall, try disabling your anti-virus real time checking, then reenable after installing.

    Also you could try disabling antivirus checking and try running your existing installation just in case its being blocked.
