    FM13 won't start Win7 Pro / Soluto?


      Hi all - this is a stretch...


      Windows 7 Pro PC have had FM12 installed on it in past - installed FM13 4 months or so ago - and it seems to launch but nothing happens and then 20 seconds later Soluto (a 3rd party startup manager) says "FM 13 Advanced has crashed. No solution".


      I have looked and done the obvious (uninstalled FM {including old versions} / reinstalled from scratch) - and the same thing.


      This has not been an "issue" as I normally run FM13 on my laptop and I have a 2nd PC that I also use (also Win 7 [and Soluto]) - but as you can guess the day I left my laptop at work was the day that PC decided to do weird video stuff and my fall back PC decided to "not launch".


      So I never worried about it until last week and I started again de-install/re-install etc etc - removing misc programs that one accumulates and so on. But nothing will kick it into life. My only other option is to reinstall Win7 etc but before I do that I thought I'd ask the community...


      I mentioned Soluto - and yes I have removed it and that did not appear to solve the issue - latest version of Java etc. All other programs


      Is there a "crash log" just for FM? Having tried many things now and spending lots of hours I think the only option is to reinstall the OS which is a last resort...


      Any clues where one would start looking?


      Appreciate the above is a bit sketchy...and yes "buy a Mac" is on my Xmas list...

          Check to see if you have any installed plug ins that are not fm 13 compatible.

            Thanks for that - yep - that was one of the things I tried 


            The plugins there on subsequent tries are just standard FM supplied ones...


            Only option is to reinstall Win7 etc - which is fine but a pain. It'll keep me off the streets...

              Well - damn - left my laptop at work... and decided to reinstall Win7 and get FM working again...


              And still it is not launching...


              I got this (see below) from the Windows Event Log - anyone care to push me in the right direction as to next steps please? (yes - was thinking of just driving to work! lol)


              Any help appreciated!
