Today, all of a sudden, my SDL Studio 2011 won't start up.

I launch it, the main window opens and then closes suddently before I can do anything.

If I uninstall and reinstall it I am afraid I will have an unregistered local copy and but no free lincences, since I could not unregister it.

Please help

Are your sure it's not just minimized, check on you taskbar

Java update? Mar 13, 2013

Hi Luca,

I use Studio 2009 but a similar thing happened to me the other week - it was working fine the evening before but wouldn't start one morning. The only thing that had changed had been a java update, so I reinstalled java and everything worked fine again.

Might not be the same in your case but it's worth a short before you start uninstalling!

Good luck,

Which exact version of Java did you reinstall, if I may ask?
