If you start GE on its own, without opening a file; Does it still crash? I've had mod maps that contained errors that would crash the editor immediately before anything was ever logged. In this case, it will crash no matter how many times GE is reinstalled. Test it against a known working mod or map. If it works, the problem is with the file you are trying to open.

No, it's not just you but more often than not it's the little things that are being overlooked and causing the problem. The number one issue is the game installation path. People are either not filling this in, or they are providing the wrong path. The editor requires the game installation, and it won't do anything you want if it can't find the game. Documents\My Games\FarmingSimulator2022 is the savegame folder and NOT the game installation path. You probably already know this, but many people reading this don't, and you'd be surprised how many people get this wrong. An example of the game installation path would be C:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Farming Simulator 22 where you can find the .exe that runs the game. This may be different depending on how/where you purchased the game. If you can't find the installation path, right click on the icon for FS22 and go to "properties," you will find your installation path there. C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\GIANTS Editor 64bit 9.0.2 is where you can find the appdata folder for the editor (if you installed on C, if not replace C with the drive you installed to). Here is where you can find the editor_log.txt and editor.xml. So many people just cannot locate this for some reason. If you can't start the editor you can find the installation path here in editor.xml and look for <gameinstallationpath>. Make sure it's updated properly and try restarting the editor. If it still won't start, come back here and check the editor_log.txt. There is rarely "Nothing" in the log. It may not contain errors that you know of, but it is rarely blank and contains useful information about your system and the editor itself that can help in determining the problem. So when someone asks what's in the log ... "nothing" is not entirely an accurate or useful answer. Also in this location you will find the scripts, and shader_cache folders. In some instances, depending on what is causing the issue, deleting the contents of the shader_cache folder is a viable solution. Some people have gone as far as deleting the editor.xml if things get really messed up. Installing and running GE "As admin" is useful and may help avoid many potential problems. Make sure GE is being installed to a proper working local drive with read/write access. For example, don't try installing on the cloud to Google drive, or OneDrive folders. This also applies for your project files, just don't do it. It's not that it can't or won't work, it's just asking for problems if you are not 100% sure of what you are doing and best to avoid this altogether if you are unsure. System compatibility is another issue many face. The older and slower your system, the more likely you are to have issues. Having next to no available memory or a proper graphics card is going to cause issues. Info from the editor_log could help with determining this. Integrated/onboard graphics vs a dedicated card/gpu has been an issue for many. While they have come a long way throughout the years with newer processors, it's not always the case with older systems and could definitely cause you some issues. So if you're working on a system that your grandma pulled out of storage just for you, chances are that you need an upgrade. For the absolute best results, make sure you are running the most current versions for both the game and GE. Quite often people are running the most current version of GE with the original non-updated version of the game, or vice versa.

@Eric Gherman (venommods): None of this is directed directly at you. Many, many people come here with the same issue and don't know why. I tried covering the most basic causes for the problem so other people searching for an answer will have a half-decent jumping off point.

Hope this helps some, good luck.
