      Description of the issue

      I have downloaded, installed, rebooted, uninstalled, rebooted, installed again and I cannot get FM Pro 13 to open. I don't mean to open files; I mean I can't get the program to open. Everything is pointed to the correct target directory. When I click on the fm icon, the little spinner comes up for a minute, then nothing happens.

               Try safe mode and see if it makes a difference.

               You can create a new user account and see if that makes a difference.

               To rule out some other issues with your specific computer on Windows systems,

               Select Run from the start menu and type in:


               Then, under the Services tab, you can stop all non-Microsoft services. If this solves the issue, then you need to look at what services you stopped and see which is one is the culprit.
