I had both Make 2016 and 2017.1.174 up and running fine on a 64-bit Windows 10 Pro system. I used Revo Uninstall Pro to uninstall 2016, which included a moderate scrub of the registry and left-over files. I looked at those steps carefully, and they only touched 2016-related items. Then went to open a file in 2017 and it crashed with an error report. Rebooted and tried again, same result, Did a Make install/repair, same result. Did a Make uninstall and re-install, same result. Did a Revo Uninstall and scrub on 2017, then reinstalled. Same result. What happens after a fresh install, is that I get the initial windows up to the point of specifying the template, and then nothing. Sometimes I’ve gotten a bugsplat, but most recently, I’m not even getting that. Scattered through there at reasonable points have been system reboots.
Any suggestion on what next, other than to go back to 2016 - assuming that will work?
I see there have been problems with video drivers, but 2017 was working fine before I uninstalled 2016.
