Can't launch resolve.

PostSat Nov 09, 2019 5:25 am

Lately, I have been running into this problem where Resolve will hang on the splash screen and never load. Once this happens, the only way I have been able to resolve the issue is by uninstalling, and then reinstalling but to a new directory (if I use the same name as the previous install, it will hang again).

Does anyone know how I can fix this?
It seems like there must be some kind of conflict in a registry entry, or some other corruption somewhere... but I have no idea how to track it down.

I'm still on 16.1
Windows 10. Latest updates and GPU drivers .
Resolve 16.2. Windows 10 Pro Insider Build. Ryzen 2700x. GTX 1060 6GB. 16GB 3200mhz DDR4 RAM. ASUS Crosshair x370.
