Good morning all,

I've been working on some stuff and every time I make an attempt at opening Giants Editor now, it gets stuck on the initial splash screen. I checked the log and nothing jumped out at me unless it's hanging up on getting updates from Giants. (see the bottom).I made a fresh install of 8.2.2 and same thing. Any help?

Belay my last. I got it figured out. I forgot to clean out all the stuff from APP DATA. That did the trick.
