SAI isn't opening
« on: August 19, 2011, 12:31:28 AM »
Today I wanted to draw using SAI and suddenly it just stopped opening. I'm clicking the icon and nothing is happening, the program window isn't showing up. I've reinstalled it two times already and restarted computer many times. Nothing helps. I'm asking for your help! :'(

A few ideas:

When you try starting it, is the program appearing in the taskbar? (If it is, the window might be opening off-screen. Perhaps after accidentally dragging it beyond the screen area.) If so, right click on the program's taskbar button and choose Move, then use cursor keys to bring it back.

Or...

Is the icon shortcut properties pointing to the correct location for SAI? Can you browse to SAI's program folder and double-click Sai.exe?

Or...

Is your firewall blocking SAI from launching? Try temporarily turning off your firewall and try starting SAI.

Thank you for your help ;)
Found the solution: BitDefender Antivirus Plus 2012 was blocking SAI. Installed the older version of BitDefender - SAI works nicely.  :)
