downloaded update now Oscar won't open

downloaded update now Oscar won't open
Earlier today I was able to open the older version of OSCAR on my Windows 10 64bit computer.  After downloading and installing the latest version OSCAR initializes but once that's done the window closes.   There are no error messages, it just closes.

I ran the Windows 10 compatibility checker and it gives a "Not Compatible" message.  I've tried uninstalling the latest version and reinstalling it but that didn't help.

RE: downloaded update now Oscar won't open
If you have an antivirus software, turn it off and then try installing OSCAR. If that doesn't correct the problem, hold down the shift key when starting OSCAR. Only try this step one time.

RE: downloaded update now Oscar won't open
Thanks but no joy. Uninstalled Oscar, deleted the Oscar team from the registry, rebooted the computer and reinstalled Oscar. It's doing the same thing where as soon as the "loading profile" step is completed Oscar shuts down. I tried it holding down the shift key and Oscar kept the loading profile open for maybe 30 seconds and then shut down. The previous version of Oscar worked fine and what's weird about it is my spouse also installed the latest version on their computer, which is the same as my computer, and Oscar works fine on their computer. What the heck???

RE: downloaded update now Oscar won't open
I entered my response to Crimson Nape via the "quick reply" but now I'm not sure if the quick reply is for the message that was posted originally or if it is for the last post in the thread.  Should I have clicked on "Reply" that's part of Crimson Nape's response or what? 

Bottom line is we still can't get OSCAR to run on one of our computers.  We both have sleep apnea and we want our results kept on separate computers.

RE: downloaded update now Oscar won't open
I had forgotten about the default "Quick Replay".  Since you can't do formatting or insert anything, I turned mine off so long ago, that I forgot it existed.  The Reply and Quick Reply are not tied to any specific post.  They are only tied to the thread that you're currently in.  The "Reply with Quote" is tied to a particular post, because it will copy that post into your reply.  This feature should only be used when it would be VERY difficult for the reader to logically connect your response to another's post, then edit out everything except what you are replying to.  

Now, let's get back to your problem. . .  Windows 10 recently went through some updates that seem to have increased security (aka: broken) in its system.  I understand a newer update has eliminated some of this.  (My thought: It's pretty bad to require an update to fix an update!)

To keep things simple, let's try the following in the order listed.
  1. Reboot your computer.
  2. Create a new user.
  3. Change Account Type to Administrator.
  4. Login in to this new account.
  5. Try installing OSCAR.
  6. Provide feedback here on its install status.
An optional step that may be preformed at any or all steps above, is to have another cup of coffee. . .  Smile

The above should give us a clue if your problem is with your account or your system.
