I just started my Avidemux version 2.7.1 and got a message that 2.7.2 is available. I uninstalled the old version and reinstalled the new version (x64). When I try to start it, nothing happens. My mouse cursor changes to the wait cursor for a second and my hard disk seems active. But then really nothing happens. No start of the program, no error message. It does not matter whether I use the association in the start menu or start the exe directly from the installation folder. It also does not work when starting the software as admin.

What can I do?

Windows 10 x64 1809, Intel i7-6700, nVidia GTX 1060 Ti.

Does %localappdata%\avidemux\admlog.txt contain any entries from these failing launch attempts? Does the MinGW release build 2.7.2 r190310 available at https://avidemux.org/nightly/win64/ run fine?

The file does not contain any entries from the new version, only old entries from the previous version. After deleting the file it is not created again when starting the new version.

The linked version runs fine.

Thank you, could you please rename %appdata%\avidemux to reset configuration and give the latest VC++ build which is 2.7.2 release + fix for the Asf demuxer + build environment modified to fix missing PNG decoder just one try?

https://avidemux.org/nightly/vsWin64/

The file name is "Avidemux_2.7.2 VC++ 64bits .exe" (yes, with a stray space between "bits" and ".exe").

I uninstalled everything, deleted the mentioned folder, rebooted and reinstalled the version from the link.

Still the same problem, the program does not start.

Thank you for testing, please use the MinGW build then while the reason for the issue with VC++ compiled application is being investigated (it runs fine with known limitations on my Windows 10 1803 install, so the probable delta is 1803 vs 1809).

Thanks, I will do that.

By the way (although it will not help you): I use a FTP software named SmartFTP and this also had the same problem (simply does not start, after a second of activity) after I upgraded my Windows 10 to version 1809. The developers had to release an update.
